It is finally April! We all know what that means.
Camp NaNoWriMo has begun!
I know this probably doesn’t mean anything to a lot of you, but this is really exciting for me! It is when writers take the month to try and meet their word count goals. Some of you may be familiar with NaNoWriMo which is National Novel Writing Month. The regular NaNoWriMo is held in November, and everyone who participates tries to write 50,000 words in the span of 30 days. Being able to achieve this is a huge accomplishment! Writing an entire book in the space of 1 month is very difficult.
As you can probably imagine, Camp NaNoWriMo is very similar to its better known sister. The biggest difference with camp, is that each writer can set their own word count goal. In November, there is no option to change the word count goal, you have to aim for 50,000.
This is my first year participating in the virtual camp, but I know that I am going to like this better :). As a high school student it can be difficult for me to find the time to write. Doing this camp allows me to be able to set a plausible goal for myself, based on my schedule. My fellow writers out there, I hope that you will join me this month and participate in Camp NaNoWriMo! For anyone who does participate, feel free to share your progress with me!
I have another dose of good news! (so much good news in one post!) Yesterday marked the first day of Spring Break!! Hallelujah! I have definitely been needing this break. Senior year is taking its tole, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am taking the final exam in my college math class at the end of the month, and AP tests start next month. There is a lot going on, but we are almost done!
My biggest goal for over break is getting about half way done with my word count goal for camp. I know that it will be hard for me to do a lot of writing once school starts again so I need to get as much writing time in as possible over break. I am also going to start reading a few books recommended to me by Nadine Brandes!
Hopefully these books will help me strengthen my writing 🙂 .
What are all of you going to do over your Spring Break (or did do)? Are you staying home or traveling?
