Camp NaNoWriMo

Monday, July 31, 2017

Last year I attempted NaNoWriMo for the first time.

NaNoWriMo is a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. The "official" month is November. Of course, you can tailor it to whatever you want to challenge yourself with. Camp NaNoWriMo is a challenge to do the same--write a 50,000 word novel--in the summer. The "official" Camp NaNo month is April.

Well, my first attempt last November did not go completely as planned. I did my prep work in October and started my writing on November first. I didn't have a computer at the time so I was doing all of my writing by hand. I got to 19,820 words and about halfway through the outline I had prepared. Not bad for my first attempt.

Well, I have finally typed out what I wrote and for Camp NaNoWriMo, I'm going to finish the story I started in November. I don't know if I'll get to 50,000, but my goal is to get to the end of the story.

Writing starts tomorrow. Wish me luck!

    This is great! I've never heard of this challenge and it sounds intriguing.... I too have been itching to get back into writing. Good luck to you!
