The Madness family and I are going camping! More or less. I have decided to join in on the fun of Camp NaNoWriMo this April. What is Camp NaNoWriMo?
Camp NaNoWriMo is a virtual writer’s retreat, designed for maximum flexibility and creativity. We have Camp sessions in both April and July, and we welcome word-count goals between 30 and 1,000,000. In addition, writers can tackle any project they’d like, including new novel drafts, revision, poetry, scripts, and short stories.
I have done both and have completed Camp NaNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo years past and I forgot how much I appreciate the community of writers. I live for the NaNoWriMo forums.
Unfortunately, I hadn’t participated in awhile because of life responsibilities and having the time to do so. My schedule actually has changed but not much but this year will be different.
This year I will be doing half the novel (25,000 or maybe less) to give me a chance to breathe. This is the reason why I choose to do the camp instead of the big November NaNoWriMo which requires you to write 50,000+ words.
This gives me a chance to interact with a bunch of new writers and bounce ideas off of and listen. I am super excited and know I will enjoy this new adventure.
A new novel idea I am extremely excited about and have big plans for, has reached the Creativity Forest via Muse. Muse has been infiltrating my everyday life with this idea and I have met some of the characters.
Now, I won’t speak on this idea too much, mostly because there’s not much to say right now or that I can explain through writing yet. You can follow me on my adventures starting in April, here on the blog and for daily updates my Facebook Page.
