Camp NaNoWriMo

July is here! The weather is beautiful and I am spending it mostly indoors, sitting at my computer because Camp NaNoWriMo has officially begun!

But what is Camp NaNoWriMo you ask? Well, in previous posts you've probably read me mention that I will be participating in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in Novemeber. That is where you're set with the challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. It's hard but doable.
Camp NaNoWriMo is similar but different. Instead of having the 50k word goal for a novel set for you, you set your own writing goal about anything. Some people set themselves a goal to finish their dissertations. Some have the goal to write as many short stories a day, or to get their novel finished etc. I have set myself the goal to get 3 chapters of my novel written or at the very least 30 pages minimum.

It is now day 2 of camp and I am already 6 pages in. I decided if I aim for 1000 words a day, I will easily get my 30 pages done before July 31st and definitely get all three chapters written. I wrote a total of 2,055 words yesterday on day 1 and now I'm getting ready to sit down and try and pump out another 1,000 words today. Wish me luck!

Until next time,
