Where has the year gone? I can't be the only one who feels like time is slipping through my fingers. I'm trying my best to keep my head above water, but between my job, my writing, and everything else, I'm not getting as much done as I'd like. Fortunately, my summer term wraps up in a couple of days, which will free up my schedule significantly. I just need to take advantage of the extra time.
One of the things I've noticed is that no matter how empty my days look on paper, they manage to fill up with miscellany that keep me from meeting my writing goals. My challenge for the rest of the summer is to make writing a priority, so that I can go back to work in the fall with a finished book.
It's not going to be easy, and I know my problem isn't unique. So I've done something to push myself to work hard. I've signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo, and my goal is to write 30,000 words in July. That's a little under 1000 words per day. I know there are prolific authors out there who probably scoff at my meager goal, but it works for me.
Do you have any tricks or tips to keep going when life gets in the way? Are any of you signed up for Camp NaNo?
