Oy! I can’t believe it’s already April tomorrow! Where the heck has 2021 gone? Seriously! How are we going into the 4th month of the year???
I dunno, but we are and I’m ready for it this time.
For those of you who don’t know Camp Nano is NaNoWriMo’s little sibling. Taking place in April it’s a chance to put the pedal back to the metal and get to work on whatever project you’re in the middle of or that you’ve been putting off.
As those of you who follow me in other places know – I don’t usually do Nano or camp anymore. Usually, I’m on top of everything and kicking butt, but the last year or so has sucked some life energy out of me. So, I need a kick in the keyboard to get back to my normal schedule.
What’s a normal schedule for me? Umm… 5kish words 6 days a week until it’s time for the second draft and to work with my editor on the book. Sometimes, I start the next one while she has chunks of the one I just finished to work on.
No, I’m not burnt out on writing. I’m just juggling more on my emotional plate and have lost a bit of my motivation.
So, what am I writing for Camp Nano? Well, I’ll be using Nano to finish up book 7 of my Love by Glitter Bomb Series. I won’t talk a lot about what’s going on in the book here, right now. If I talk about a book’s plot too early it jinxes me and I’m avoided that like I’m avoiding the literal plague right now!
So, what’s my plan? I don’t plan to write every day. I never do that anymore. My plan is hit the end of the first draft this month which on my old writing routine would’ve been a piece of cake. But since right after the winter holidays things have been wonky for my writing. So, we’ll see. I’ll work my normal days (Usually Monday-Saturday, taking Sunday off.)
Right now I’m damn close to hitting the 25k mark of this book. 24,138 words written to be exact.
Good luck to everyone participating in camp! My the words ever be in your favor!

1 thought on “I’m Ready for Camp Nano!”
5k words a day is the bomb! And I can barely keep up with my 250. Slow and steady has done me good though, as I think I’ve churned out some 280,000 words over 4 manuscripts so far. But 5k a day would be awesome and I’d probably quadruple my total word count by now if I had your output. Do keep on keeping on, and keep inspiring!
