As the weather gets warmer, one thing comes to mind: Camp. I haven’t been to a camp in years, but this year I’m going to remedy that. That’s right, I’m going to a summer camp. Or spring camp since it isn’t really summer yet.
Actually, I won’t be going anywhere. This camp is taking place right here in my own home.
No, I’m not starting my own camp in my backyard. I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo!
Remember in November I wrote 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)? Well, Camp NaNoWriMo is like that, except you get to set your own word count goal.
Can I hear a cheer for keeping my sanity this NaNo round? 🙂
Don’t worry, I won’t neglect The Hashna Stone. I kept my word-count goal small so I can still work on it. I’ll continue posting a new chapter every week.
As much as I love working on The Hashna Stone, I’m super excited to be starting something new. I’ve had the idea for this world for a while now and it will be fun to finally write a story in it.
It will be far from finish by the end of April since I’m only planning to write 25,000 words but at least it’s a start, and there’s always Camp NaNo in June for whatever I didn’t get done this time around.
I love that they have these in the middle of the year to give you something to be a part of between Novembers. Being a part of a community set on the same thing I am really keeps me from putting my writing off. Plus, it just plain fun! 🙂
So how about you guys? Is anyone else doing Camp NaNo this April or planning on doing the one in June?
