Words & More Words

This Romance Writer’s Life…

Summer Camp!

It’s time to gear up for Camp NaNoWriMo, writers.

You may have read my past blogs about NaNoWriMo, where in the month of November writers furiously work toward a goal of 50,000 words in 30 days.

In July, we do things a little differently. Truly, the best part of Camp NaNoWriMo is that you can set your own goal.

Goals can include word counts, editing a previous project (that’s my focus this July), blog posts, journaling. All that matters is that you’re writing, and hitting your goals.

Frankly, I never really was an outdoorsy person and with the humidity in Chicago, I’m happy to be in the A/C, planting myself behind my computer for the next 31 days and focus on:

  • Completing the Outline for Tame My Racing Heart

  • Writing the middle part and ending

  • Sending off a good portion to my new editor

Tame My Racing Heart: When a championship winning race car driver receives threats, an ex-Marine is hired to protect her.

Overall, I’m hoping to add about 20,000 words to the entire project. That could very well be the outline of the story itself. Like I said, the key is to WRITE.

Sure, there are a few roadblocks in the way:

  • Spiderman comes out Tuesday

  • Fireworks

  • Stranger Things is released Thursday

  • I have a Conference in Denver at the end of July

So realistically, I have 27 days to get in 20,000 words. That’s 740 words a day.

Easy peasy!
