Irresistable Shares: April Equals Camp NaNoWriMo!

So, are you in?

I am.

I think.

I unwittingly signed up for the April Camp NaNoWriMo 2013. Here’s my badge to prove it:

I am not going for 50,000 words (saving that for November; this is just a warm-up) but instead am going for a manageable (WHAT?!?) 17,500-word novella.

Camp starts in two days.

I’m kinda stoked.

And kinda scared too.

What if I can’t pull it off? What if I do pull it off? What if I get writers’ block? What if I get writers’ diarrhea?

All that being said, April will probably prove to be month during which you won’t see me much. I plan to pop in and give a daily word count (to stay accountable, and to let you know I’m still alive…). If you are joining camp, what’s your plan?

I hope to take a few months following camp to edit what I write during, and may even try putting it out for publication (I have a spot over on Fastpencil, so can do it pretty easily). Only time will tell!

  1. I am a camper too – signed up a while back – added a blog post too. Went to my Cabin Friday to see who was allocated – they are either asleep or still packing, I hope they will be there for me whilst I am attempting to get half a book written.
    Good luck both of you!

    1. πŸ™‚ I think I chickened out of a cabin…I decided to be accountable through the blog instead of on the site. Maybe next time round. Hope you are able to get at least a half of your book finished! Will you go for the traditional NaNoWriMo in the fall?

      1. I may be in the Cabin alone, I have gone for the whole 50 000 but I am a ‘rebel’ because it is non-fiction, I thought about my writing projects and decided that I need to work on the manuscript this Spring. I fancy the idea that if I join the November Camp that I will create a work of fiction later this year.
        I started my blog this year and it is a writing journey, I will be posting about camp as well.
        I discovered NaNoWriMo through people on blogs talking about it and as I can’t afford a writing retreat…
