Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp-2018-Writer-Facebook-Cover-1The 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.

  1. I’m genuinely tempted to take part in the April camp because I have never taken part in anything like this before! I only started blogging two and a half months ago but I’ve playing around with my current novel for ages and, even though I’ve really started to make some progress on it, I’d love to finish it soon and I really think this might give me the kick I need! ahah Great post and I can’t wait to read more of your posts … and your half novel! 🙂

    1. Thank you for reading and commenting! You definitely should. You can go at your own pace and they have a wonderful community that you can bounce ideas off of. Welcome to blogging! I’ll have to take a look at your posts as well.

      1. Ahahaha I know this community has been absolutely brilliant to me so far! I guess I’ve also been concerned that if I set a word count goal, I’ll end up stressing myself out and not hitting it!

      2. That is a true fear that I work with and I do understand how disappointing it can be if you do not hit your goal. Set yourself up with the right expectations of yourself. You may set a realistic word count goal but give yourself an alternative like 10,000 or at least getting through the first five chapters. The beauty of the camp is that it is tailored by you for you.

  2. Good Luck with your Camp project. AJ’s looking forward to it. Me too actually, I get to live the life I always wanted to. Or at least the one AJ’s is remaking for me. Camp is the perfect time to get started. That was where AJ got her first NaNo win. It really is about forming the habit of writing everyday (or nearly everyday). If you don’t think you can hit a word goal… time yourself for 10 minutes, see how many words you write in that time. Mulitply it by 30 days and there is a goal. 10 mins a day. OR set it as a time of 10 mins a day so 300 mins or 5 hours of writing in one month! I bet that doesn’t sound like a lot in the long run.

    1. Thank you! That’s really good advice and helpful to set up a realistic goal for yourself. Good luck I can’t wait to see what you get remade into and read your story.
