So I have very foolishly decided to take on Camp NaNoWriMo in a month that is hardly empty as it is. But I need to get my WIP written, and it needs to get done FAST.
July might be crazy busy but I know I’ll have some respite at the end to power through those words, so here goes my (insanely ridiculous) challenge to myself: I need to write 20,000 words in July. That’ll bring my wordcount total to around the 60K mark which should make it easy to then write another 20K in August and have it FINISHED by the end of the summer.
(I can actually feel the excitement as I type this. I think it might be covering up the feeling of quivering fear underneath…)
But as with all best laid plans, it would help if I start looking at my WIP and identify the plot holes. So I’ve got my trusty postcards and coloured pens, and it’s time to go forth and PLOT this beast. It’s a strategy I’ve used before, so I’m hoping this helps scaffold up this first draft that appears to be growing manically in all directions.
In five days. Gulp.
The thing about NaNo is it’s so much better when you have people to write with. I can’t wait for writing sprints, write-ins, and all the rest that comes with it.
Are you joining with Camp NaNoWriMo this July? Or are you up for some writing sprints to get that wordcount up? Let me know in the comments!
