Camp is next month! Why did no one tell me????? EEEEEEEEEP I am not prepared. Why did it come so soon? That’s just mean.
"Take off your colours." Her breathe was hot and the room was far too dusty. She blinked against the light as it started to push through the thin curtain. "Please." Why was she being so insistent. Why did she want her to see the world in all it’s dismal glory. After all without her colours the world would just be black and white. Dull. Lifeless. Everyone knew it was only thanks to the colours that people could survive in this world. Now that colour blindness had become the global norm. That’s what happened when you started messing around with genes she guessed. Things went wrong. People got worse at the same time as getting better. "Don’t you trust me?" Great now she sounded upset. Talk about a guilt trip. Carefully she removed her colours, being sure to keep her eyes closed for as long as possible. Her lids fluttered open ever so slowly, the light causing her eyes to water. Everything seemed so much clearer. Frozen somehow despite the heat. And..what was that…the light seemed yellow. No. That wasn’t possible. She couldn’t see colours-no one could. It must just be her mind playing tricks on her. "It’s amazing isn’t it." she sounded happier now, her voice lowering as she took in the scenery before them. It was just a plain street, with litter on the pavement and everything. Yet it was beautiful. No work of art could compare. Tears slid down her cheeks mimicking the way the colours ran into her vision. Slowly giving birth to the lifeless world in front of her.
So what do you guys think I should set as my targets for camp? I think I should have a minimum of 20k words at least but I don’t know :/ Does anyone have any targets in mind for their own novels?
There is a war coming. A child dreams of blood washing through the streets. Bodies, as common as stones, scattered on the ground. Yet few are even aware of this oncoming terror. Instead they are focussed on capturing love. Rising higher on the social ladder or perhaps ignoring it altogether. Those ignored by society can feel the trembling of fear steadily rising. Crazies wander around muttering about the great death heading their way. However life is normal for the majority. The Lord and Lady see to that. But for how much longer?
Okay, I’m going to try to write a christmas day fanfiction tomorrow. But I am not promising to write it. So please don’t get mad if I don’t write one. Hugs and happy holidays.
