I’ve put off making my announcement post this year because I’ve made this same announcement before. My plan for CampNaNoWriMo is the same plan I’ve had for many other Camp sessions.
I’m working on The Dreams. Again. Still. It’s a big story. It’s also a third draft which is a strange experience.
Now that I’ve actually reached my Camp goal once, I want to do it again. I’ve set my initial goal at 10k. It’ll be a stretch. The past few months haven’t been the most productive. My brain needs to get out of this rut. Hopefully Camp will be the kick in the pants I need.
The last year has been a mess. I barely remember the Camp session from last April. It feels like it happened much longer than a year ago. Thankfully, NaNoWriMo keeps stats from previous events.
Last April I definitely aimed too high. I thought a higher goal would be a good distraction. I was wrong and now I know better. There’s too much uncertainty and stress in the world these days and can’t push myself too hard or I end up miserable because I always fall short.
This year my goal is only half as high. It will still be a stretch. I’m not sure I can make it and I’m usually overly confident in my abilities the month before a Camp event.
I’m looking forward to pushing myself to write more. Having a community of people all racing to the finish line with me always makes the extra effort worth it.
Will you be writing for CampNaNoWriMo in April? I’d love to hear about your project and your April goals and cheer you on!
