I am a forgetful person. But occasionally I remember things just in time.
Ever heard of NaNoWriMo? It’s short for National Novel Writing Month, which takes place every November. Basically, you write furiously all month until you step back from your computer and hope all those words somehow formed themselves into a coherent story. I’ve thought about doing it, but I always seem to remember it’s happening right around the middle of November. Plus, Novembers are busy for me.
Thankfully, there is also Camp NaNoWriMo, which is a significantly more awesome version of the regular NaNoWriMo! It occurs in July rather than November, a still busy but less hectic month for me. And, along with the usual word-tracking, you get to be in a virtual cabin of people who are also doing Camp NaNo. These people can support and encourage you, ad it’s always fun to get to know other writers!
I’ve got five days until the frantic typing begins. That gives me five days to finalize my plot and characters. Then, it’s on to 31 days of nothing but writing, writing, writing. My word goal is 50,000 words, which means I must write 1,612 words per day to finish on time.
But for now, onward!
