Hello again and welcome back! Yesterday, was one of my product days on the site, for I managed to get five posts on here. Yes, most of them were on the topic or had to deal with COVID-19. But today, I want to focus on something else that is very important to us writers and that is gearing up for Camp NaNoWriMo, which is like starting in twelve days, or for those that want to count the days April 1.
In case you don’t know what Camp NaNoWriMo is, it’s basically a one shoot off of NaNoWriMo but instead of doing the necessary 50, 000 words in 30 days you get to pick your word count or you can decided to edit a piece that you have already written. The other thing that is different about Camp NaNoWriMo from NaNoWriMo is that you get sorted into virtual tents, just like if you were at an actual summer camp.
I have done Camp in the past, but I have not done in the last couple of years, because I was busy or I was dealing with other things. As far as this year goes, I’m on the fence whether or not I’ll do it, just because I already have projects that are already in the works and I really don’t feel like starting something new. I’m just not sure.
My other thought on this is that I could still camp but on a unofficial basis just because I want to work on my projects that I already have in progress without actually having to report my progress on the site. This is where the fence comes in, because it’s a great way to hook up with writers online, but at the same time I’m working on finishing one project at a time.
However, the other side about doing camp this year, is that due to COVID-19 many of us are already stuck at home with no where really to go that it would be a great way to knock out some work or a story or even a novel.
But if you are doing Camp NaNoWriMo, good for you. I’m not knocking it down I just don’t think right now, it’s a good time for me to do so. Since I’m on the brink of finishing the edits for Crimson Protection, and that is the last of the previously published works that I’m currently updating and then that goal will be completed.
Please, if you want a challenge think about it and sign up soon since I think the deadline to be sorted into a tent before April 1, is coming up. Good luck and I hope that you meet your goal that you have set for yourself in April.
Also in case you did not know, Camp NaNoWriMo will also be happening in July and at which point in the month of June you would want to start planning or even thinking about doing it then. Then of course NaNoWriMo will take place in November and you want to start planning for that one in late September and through out the whole month of October. But we have plenty of time before then, and I will definitely being participating in NaNoWriMo this year.
I hope that you have found this post helpful, if not to give you something to think about for next month.
Thank you, for your continued support! I wish for you have a happy writing day! Happy writing and happy creating!
