Camp NaNoWriMo April 2014


Today marks the official start of writing season for virtual campers participating in Camp NaNoWriMo and I thought I’d write a short post about that. Basically the same as November’s event, Camp NaNoWriMo is an organized writing marathon, designed to encourage authors to write a novel in thirty days.

I participated last July, but did not complete my novel because I was preparing to release Fall of Venus and had a lot of edits to do before publishing the final manuscript. I look back on that experience as a valuable lesson in multitasking. The novel still sits unfinished, but not forgotten. I chose to let it simmer for a bit while I wrote Crimson Return and The Trinity. Now I’m going to let it simmer a little further while I focus this month on Neverland Academy. I will not make the same multitasking mistake twice.

I have a good head start with 13k words already, so hopefully that will give me a good cushion on those days when the words just won’t come to me or as a popular meme suggests, my invisible friends stop talking to me 😉

If you’d like to see what I’m working on feel free to view my camper profile.

Anybody else joining the campfire fun?
