Summer camp!


Hooray for the first day of camp!

Now, I know what you're thinking: didn't you just do Camp NaNo in April? Why yes, yes I did.  While I didn't meet my word count goal that month, I did get a massive amount of work done, which is why I've signed up for another session of camp.  And besides, what summer would be complete without a stint at camp? (Incidentally, I never went as a child, so I guess I'm making up for that now.  Also, I'm trying to see how many times I can use the word camp in one blog post.)

My goal for this month is 40,000 words on book 3, and hopefully a working title as well.  It's an ambitious, but not impossible, task, and I think it will be a lot of fun.

Is anyone else out there doing the July Camp NaNo session?  Let me know so we can cheer each other on!

  2. I never went to summer camp as a child either.

    And I'm sadly not Camp NaNo-ing this month.

    But best of luck with your goal!!

  6. I wish. I've got kids who *aren't* at camp, so no writing time for me. :(

    1. Thanks, Diana! You can always have your own Camp NaNo, even if you didn't sign up. And don't forget about November!

  9. Love that mug. I thought about doing CampNaNo but... You know what's weird about me? I find it a lot easier to do these things when lots of people are doing them and there's a vibe in the air. Maybe we should start a Forum thread...
    Although I'm supposed to be editing this month anyway, not getting high on a new draft :-)

    1. I know what you mean--it helps when there is a large group participating, cheering each other on.
