Apart from spending two fruitless hours attempting to write some kind of blurb for my Camp NaNoWriMo project and half an hour driving from London to Oxford on googlemaps to ensure the journey is authentic for readers, oh, and tweeting my lungs out because I’m new to twitter and haven’t figured out how to self-regulate yet, I’ve been typing up the notes for camp next week. I stopped typing at exactly 5000 words. I’ve made the notes for the opening scene quite detailed so that I can jump straight in when camp starts.
I thought you might like to see them.
Scene of accident – Violet hit by car, noise, feel of tarmac, somebody’s hand holding hers, bright sunlight and shadows moving behind eyelids, holding breath, smell of burning rubber, grass, petrol, blood, voices, distraught driver, sirens, panic, traffic, sound of tyres on rain, wetness soaking through clothes. last coherent thought before accident – at least the rain has stopped. opens eyes to see boy from tube holding her hand and begs him not to leave her as she’s bundled into an ambulance.
I don’t expect my notes to make much sense to anyone else. Only I know who the boy from the tube is.
So, cabin allocation for me tomorrow. Very excited.
