Camp NaNoWriMo starts April 1!
Get your backpacks ready, campers! It’s time for this year’s April version of Camp NaNoWriMo! Join me as I finish parts 2 and 3 of The Widow Teal.
What is Camp NaNoWriMo?
Just like National Novel Writing Month each November (NaNoWriMo), this project focuses on the written word. However, the flexibility with Camp NaNoWriMo is that you can focus on time, word count, pages, lines written, and more. Editing? No problem! Make it an hourly goal. Writing a script? That works, too! Focus on pages.
This year, I’ll be continuing with my current project list rather than starting something new. Camp NaNoWriMo will be focused on finishing Jerrica’s story in The Widow Teal. Part one has been available for quite some time on Amazon.com. Now it’s time to find out how Jerrica moves forward through her dance with her “dead” husband Harrison, and how Arty, Mitch, Cat, and the rest of the crew fair in the turmoil.
I love Camp NaNoWriMo because it’s perfect for continuing a project that you are already working on. While you can begin something new – and many people do – it isn’t a requirement as it is with November’s NaNoWriMo challenge.
Have you been writing on a book or project for a while now? Join me in April and finish that book!
My Plan for Camp NaNoWriMo
Like every NaNo, I’ll be tracking my word count. It’s easiest for me to make this kind of goal. I’ll be updating this on this site as well as on WriterBloggerMom.
I’m going to be sharing my joys, frustrations, wins, ad losses on social media, specifically on my new WriterBloggerMom Twitter account. All official updates will come through my official author profile.
I’ll be planning the story a little more than usual by focusing on story beats that correspond with word count goals.
And, just for fun, I’m going to be playing with character interviews, new book cover designs, and more as I write.
Camp was always fun as a child. Now I get to experience it again… only this time I can have a beer if I want. Score!
Look for more updates next week. Happy Reading!
