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
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
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.
