Writer’s Camp NaNoWriMo is a writers challenge and inspiration. I highly encourage it for those of you thinking about writing… signing up and making a commitment to write 30,000 words became the bugle call in the morning that nudged me to pad and pen. Pressure and excuses came in like a marching band playing loudly and reminded me to step up the pace and get it done.
I am glad I challenged myself to complete a project. I felt stuck and wanted this camp to be an impetus to just write and see what the break through would be. Sure enough a chapter came together and then another one and another and before I knew it I reached my goal of 30,000 words for the month of July and earned a badge!
While virtual camps are fun I do miss the camaraderie that my writers group offers though. Folks like you and I writing, exploring various forms of creative expression, the frustrations and the joys of seeing something accepted for publication or successful self publishing. Hugs are good when success is achieved! Wishing my cabin mates the best!
What’s the next step? Stay tuned for announcements of two books I have in the works. My next goal is to get them published by the end of this year or sooner.
To the folks at Camp NaNoWriMo: thanks for the encouraging words, s’mores of encouragement, boatloads of tips and help rowing when the arm and hands got tired of rowing seemingly upstream some days. It was fun. Now let the revisions begin.
Enjoy your day. Judith
