I’m going to try Camp NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year. It takes place through the months of April and July. I haven’t decided on a word count goal yet. I think I’ll just try to write as much as I can and save the strict deadlines for November. I’ve graduated from college and only work part time, so I have no excuses. I’ve never made it through NaNoWriMo, but this is my year. With so few obligations, I know I can do it if I set my mind to it. I’ve been doing so well with my weight loss goals (26 pounds in 3 months), and writing is something I love to do. I have a concept in mind for what I want to write, but I’m still trying to get it to all come together. I’m planning on starting before I go to bed so I don’t lose motivation.
I’m brainstorming now and I think I’ve pretty much decided that I’m going to write a play. It’s easier and more fun and I’m less likely to get stuck that way.
Anyone else participating in Camp NaNoWriMo? Good luck! We can do this!
