GoodBye July Camp NaNoWriMo 2018 eBook cover

It’s time once again for Camp NaNoWriMo! …or at least it was. July was not a great month for writing so the story actually got started in August (whoops!).

The short story idea has been outlined in Bunnies Always Lie and now it’s time to get some words on paper… err, screen!

In the grand tradition of my recent NaNo’s this is a MuseFic which means part of the story is the actual rough draft and part is talking about the story. There is world-building, and outlining, and plot hole construction (and repairs)… it’s all the mess of writing dumped on the page! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you want to skip the spoilers below, hop right into Part 1!
