So July is going to be a busy month for me, but most of all it is going to be so much fun! I will be participating in 2 readathons and I will be starting my debut novel.
That is right, I will be starting my debut novel! I am so excited and nervous to start it, and I am so ready for it. I have been working on my outlining for a while now and I feel like I am ready to start writing. While I had decided this I got a mail for NaNoWriMo, announcing Camp NaNoWriMo, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity and motivation to start, otherwise I will keep sitting on my outlining and never start and I have set my goal for the Camp pretty reasonable so I could always go back to my outlining when I need to.
So what is going to be my goal for Camp NaNoWriMo? Well that is the great thing of Camp NaNoWriMo, unlike NaNoWriMo, you can set your own goal and work on the thing you need to work on at that time. It doesn’t matter if this is editing or rewriting or writing the first draft. So my goal is going to be to writing 20.000 words in my first draft. I think this is doable for me and while I am doing this I can still work on my outlining if I need to. And I am not setting the goals to write everyday, since I have days where I will be working a lot so I might not have the energy to write. But I will try this, it will make it easier to get to my word count goal, but I won’t be hard on myself when I take a day rest or a day to dedicate to my outlining or to read through what I already have.
I am really excited to do this and I am really pumped to complete my goal! Are you participating in Camp NaNoWriMo? What is your goal going to be?
I will be giving you updates throughout the month, but that would be whenever I feel like I have something to update you on. If you would like to keep up with my progress you can add me as a friend on the Camp NaNoWriMo site.
