It’s almost time for the summer Camp NaNoWriMo and this time I’m going to take advantage of it. While I’ve been writing little stories and bits of larger projects here and there, I haven’t work on one thing consistently since writing Standing By. Partially because I’ve had a number of ideas hit me all at once and I couldn’t focus on one at a time.
However, I’m going to change that, at least for the upcoming month.
There’s a particular project that I keep going back to and really want to execute. Part of the reason I haven’t been able to is because I just didn’t know how to go about it. I’ve tried different perspectives and different characters to tell the story, but none of it was sticking. Though I think I finally know how to tackle it, so I’ll be using the month of July to get most of it, if not all, written.
Probably not all of it, though I don’t want to leave out the possibility that I could. I have written more than 50,000 words in a month before, just not on anything that I really intended on publishing… which is why it was easier to write so much.
Sharing your work publicly is scary people. I won’t lie about it.
But I’m leaving this post here as an accountability statement. I’ll of course be using Twitter, Instagram, and maybe Facebook to have others keep me accountable for writing at least a little bit each day. I’d really like to go the full 31 days of July not missing a day of writing.
So wish me luck, and good luck to all the other writers out there who are also going to be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo!
