To Camp NaNo or Not to Camp Nano in July – That is the Question
Every year since 2008, I’ve participated in National Novel Writing Month and every year since 2009, I’ve completed 50,000 words in November. However, although I’ve tried to enter Camp Nano and do 50,000 words in other months, I’ve never succeeded.
I’ve been going back and forth on whether to try this year for July. I could use a good spark to my writing, and while I’ve had fun going to shows and I’ve done lots of editing, I really need to get back to writing. I can’t think of much that would help more than a forced 50,000 words in July.
I’m curious if anyone else has tried it and what they think. Am I crazy?
The one thing that I want to do differently from November is this: Instead of starting a new novel, I want to finish some of my old ones. I’m going to start with my epic fantasy, The Lantern, and see what transpires from there. The Hawks would certainly like their second book as well.
I’ll see if I can post on July 1st and let everyone know what’s going on.
I hope everyone’s had a great June!
