I’m participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this April, with the goal of writing 30,000 words by the end of the month!
NaNoWriMo (short for National Novel Writing Month) happens every year in November. However, Camp NaNoWriMo is a great alternative for those who wish they could participate in NaNoWriMo but don’t have time in November to commit. It typically takes place in the spring and summer, anytime between April and August, and the goals are not as strict. Writer’s can choose their word count as well, making it convenient for those who still have a busy schedule.
The entire first draft of “The Art of Falling” was written in June and August of Camp NaNoWriMo 2012, and the first half of the sequel was written during July Camp NaNoWriMo 2015.
This year, I’m going to be tackling the challenge once more! Instead of chugging out another novel, I’m going to take a more laid back approach and do a collection of short stories based around minor characters in “The Age of Mythos!” I’m also lowering my personal goal from 50,000 words to 30,000.
I’ll be focusing on writing all through April, so blog posts will be updates with the challenge. Wish me luck!
