KDWC update

Well everyone,

It was a very successful camp. Ive lost track of how many of these Ive participated in. I believe I started up the second camp that they had. And let me tell you, this was the most successful camp I have ever seen.

It was a camp of record breaking, both personal and group settings. This camp was amazing. The KDWC had a total of eight smaller areas called tents. The miracle? Every tent reached 100% of their goal. Our entire camp reached over 100% of the initial goals. Not only that, but we broke the record of most words ever written during a camp, with an astounding 2,289,493 words written. We had a record of 139 people in attendance. (The last camp, we were excited that we just broke 100).

As for my personal record. I reached the most words Ive ever written on a story in an entire day, 5000 words. I also broke my record for most words Ive ever written during a camp with 20,050 words.

I have been stuck on my WIP “Serpents and Stardust” and so I entered this camp very much discouraged. I hadn’t been able to write for over 4 months. When I came in to this camp, I wasn’t expecting to get anything written. And for the first week or so, I was right. I tried writing in that WIP and nothing was coming out the way I wanted it to. If I’m honest, I was ready to quit, I voiced my concerns on our “mechanic shed”- this is where we authors go to get help and inspiration.

Two lovely ladies jumped to my aid. I knew them only as “Joy unspeakable” and “Shield of Faith”. I knew I couldn’t write in my current WIP, and so together, we came up with a plot that started with a general thought. “I want to write a pirate book”. This dream started with a Pinterest picture that eventually grew into a board. I discussed an idea with these two ladies, and together we formed the concepts, chapters, and personalities of my characters.

The story continues to grow. Ive formatted the chapters and the plots for them. I am slowly piecing together the story, braiding the world and its characters into one solid strand, but the ending keeps shift and changing. I look forward to introducing you to the town, the characters, and eventually the story in the near future. But without J. Perry ( Joy Unspeakable) and V.F. Perry (Shield of Faith), this book most likely would not have been in progress. So ladies, if you read this, I want you to know that I am extremely grateful for you and your godly encouragement. You were a great help to me this camp and I look forward to seeing you at the next one.

If you are a young lady who is an author, an aspiring author, or someone who just writes for fun, we would love to have you join us at our next King’s Daughter’s Writing Camp. The next camp starts in March, so it gives you time to think and pray about joining. It’s a great place to fellowship, meet godly young ladies, and build a bond that lasts for years to come. If you join, let them know “Adara” sent you. They’ll know who you mean.

Thank you for reading. This year couldn’t have been done without you. If you have any questions, comments, or are interested in writing a guest post or having something reviewed, feel free to reach out. God bless you, and I will see you next time on the Path to Penlightenment.

God bless.
