3 Weeks Until CampNaNoWriMo


It’s been a few weeks since I did an update on my thoughts for the April session of CampNaNoWriMo. Since the event hasn’t started yet, there isn’t too much to say.

I’m definitely going to continue working on draft 3 of The Dreams. I want to get back into having a steady stream of scenes from the new draft for my patrons (be sure to check out my Patreon if you’re interested in that) and Camp seems like a good time to help myself get back on track with that.

This morning I finally settled on a word count (for now). 30,000 words seems like a totally sensible amount to write in April. I don’t want to put myself under the same sort of strain as November since I’ve shown myself many times before that I can’t pull off NaNoWriMo outside of November. 30,000 words comes to 1,000 words a day which is plenty of a stretch from my current word daily word counts.

Something I’ve been meaning to do but haven’t done yet is find cabin mates. Cabins are one of the most unique features of CampNaNoWriMo so I want to make sure I’m in one. There’s still time to figure it out, of course, but it is easy to let time get away from me when we’re talking about a few weeks until the start of an event.

How is your CampNaNoWriMo prep going? Have you picked a project? Settled on a word count? Joined a cabin? Need someone to talk to about your plans for Camp? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I have a vague idea of my project, based on a set of titles I found in the Adoption forums (If the Shoe Fits; if the dress fits; if the crown fits). Right now, I’m trying to create my main character.

    I really wish we could be part of multiple cabins. I’m already in one with members from Writing dot com.

  2. I’m working on a long fanfiction right now that I’ll probably sign up to finish in April. It’s already 24k+ words with a prologue, three chapters, and an outline, so I just need to power through six more chapters, an epilogue, and spreadsheets full of notes on the extra headcannon I need to develop in order to know what I’m writing.
