I’ve been signed up and patiently awaiting National Novel Writing Month (November) – contemplating participation. Fifty-thousand words in a month is crazy, right? With a full-time job, two kids, and an enjoyment of the outdoors, when would I have the time?
But wait! I just discovered Camp NaNoWriMo that runs in April. You can set your own word count goal. This will coincide PERFECTLY with me finishing the novel I started in February. Thirty-thousand words should wrap up draft zero (the terrible concoction that happens before the first draft.) I’m already 25,000 words into this new novel. Hopefully, I don’t encounter many stumbling blocks as I’m feeling a little writers block today. Oh well, one scene at a time. If it doesn’t go the right way, I’ll just toss it later.
So I’m excited, my very first NaNoWriMo event! Anyone out there in with me?
