Hey you guys!
I’m pretty excited for Camp NaNoWriMo. I’ve been in a bit of a funk since November and I’m ready to get back into things. I am wondering if I should have chosen April though.
We’re starting 100 days of hell at work, that’s literally what they call it. A time when I am stressed to tears practically every, single day. But I’ve already started plotting my novel, I even made a little cover for it. And I’ve been assigned to a cabin and talked one of the girls in my area into doing it with me this year. It’s too late to back out now and I don’t want to.
I was hoping to be further along in my outline by now, but I still have two weeks. I think I can pull together a decent enough one in that time. I’ve always been a discovery writer but that hasn’t worked out so well with my last few projects.
I haven’t managed to turn out a full outline yet, everyone has a way they think it should be done but I’m learning that everyone does it a little (or a lot) differently. And you might not be able to use the same method with every project.
If you haven’t noticed yet, today was the first day of cabin assignments. Mine has been quiet so far. I’m hoping for a slightly more active one this year. Last year, it tapered off after the first week. Everyone is a little shy. People live in different time zones, there’s work or school and I guess family should get some attention. I get it. Things get busy. It’s easy to forget that there’s a cabin page to check.
So what are you doing to prepare yourself for camp? Or are you one of those people who were ready two months ago? (In which case, I kind of hate you.)
