Camp NaNo Update / Writer's Night Update!

I should be keeping track of what I've read at Writer's Nights, and what I've worked on this month (which is Camp NaNoWriMo).

First of all, in January I read... well, I don't remember.  Let's work backwards on this one.  Last week was April Writer's Night (at Gene and Mike's place), and I read the story Substitute, which I completed earlier this month.  I rewrote the ending thanks to some good suggestions, mostly from Matt.  (I also wrote a brand new story suggested by Matt -- more on that later.)

March Writer's Night was at Sheryl and Shan's place, and I read Abjure the Realm of No Return, which I also wrote earlier in March.  I was really happy with it, but there were some suggestions that I incorporated into the story, mostly from Sheryl's friend whose name escapes me at the moment.  Good stuff though that improved the story!

February I read... I'm pretty sure I read Villain of the Weak.  I remember because Gene suggested a tweak for the ending which improved it quote a bit.  I still can't remember what I read in January... maybe it was Tryout Trouble because I know I've read that one.

No, I'm pretty sure it was Revealing, because that gave me the idea to write Permit.

Well, anyway... in March I wrote:  Permit, Abjure the Realm of No Return, Superdrone, and Dream A Little Dream.  I was writing right up to the start of Camp Nano and so it's hard to remember exactly, but all of those show last modified dates from March.

For Camp NaNoWriMo so far I have written:  The Shadow Out of Joe's Mouth, Substitute, Elementary, Consuming Passion, Whom the Mad Would Destroy, Godzilla Was An Artist, Old (idea suggested by Matt), and Avatar Bazaar.  I've also worked on a very long story called Oz on the Half-Shell, and I've started several story ideas/fragments:  All the Drama You've Been Craving, Sharp Dressed Man (which was a half-written story that already existed under a different name -- still half-finished), Gorgon Gun, Happy When It Rains, Walpurgisnacht, and Heart of a Child.  I've been doing most of my writing this week on Walpurgisnacht, but I'm not getting a whole lot of writing done atm.  :/
