Camp NaNoWriMo – Draft Zero Here I Come!

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?

    I love camp! Not because of the flexibility, but because I need more than one NaNo session every year. 😉 Waiting three to four months is much easier than waiting a whole year.
    Good luck!

    I’ve never done Camp NaNo, but I got this idea that I NEEDED to write, but wanted the motivation of doing it alongside others to get me going. So YAY Camp! I set my goal small though, so I don’t lose again…LOL

    This will be my second Camp! I, too, totally forgot that it was coming up in April. So needless to say, I’m pretty excited about it. I’m going for a more relaxed goal of 20k words. It’s a busy time of year, but I think it’s doable! Good luck!
