Day 20 #Campnanowrimo: Tribeca Rising

Last night, I dashed to a VR Tribeca cocktail party and got my belly full of hors d’oeuvres, particularly the fried mac and cheese balls.

Also, got my Franklin Pass in my hands!

Give me a cookie.

I partook in some noteworthy milestones last night, two comedy sketches and one brainstormed movie/tv scene. Both drafts, but both substantial concepts.

Now that I turned in my memoir piece at the last minute like the good student I am, I have some room for Campnanowrimo.

“ADHD Time Travel” Novella Draft: While I didn’t do the 500 word goal, I at least started a new chapter.

Yeah, since I’m a bad student turning in her stuff at the last second, I don’t have much Campnanowrimo progress to show for.

Anyway, a sneak peek of my mediocre memoir that won’t be mediocre one day!

Day 14 Campnanowrimo: I want to collapse

And now I have a migraine as the NYC sun sinks.

So it’s going to be a tiring day tomorrow. I have to finish my damn memoir workshop piece for Sunday. 

I managed some marginal process for main Campnanowrimo pursuits:

Day 13 #Campnanowrimo: Finish Yer Damn Memoir

Hey kids, remember, always finish your memoir to ease your consciousness.

Today, is effectively a Full Day with my new internship. So I cannot be in attendance to do much Campnanowrimo today. I hope to finish two movie reviews and my damned memoir sample for workshop at the New School.

Anyway, some progress:

Day 11 #Campnanowrimo: Off to job fair

It’s lovely to update your resume with a new paying video editing internship.

I have to dash to school’s job fair (and print my updated resume). While I didn’t have the free time or well-placed motivation to do a morning 500-word scene/chapter to the straightforward novella draft, I at least worked on a bit of the novella.
