I signed up! I’m doing it and let daily goal too! I’ve never done anything like this but I’m really enjoying my cabin, the support of my fellow campers and a chance to totally focus (as much as I can!) on my writing.
I’ve been sensible with my goal: 15,000 words for the month, just under 500 words a day. I’m also using Chris Fox’s 5k power hour method of weird sprinting which is stressful but do good!
Anyone else taking part in Camp NaNo?
Something @authorbrittanywang mentioned in one of her videos was a piece of advice which has haunted me ever since hearing it : Start with something you don’t love.
I wish I had done that, as I love The KeyMaster and I want to do it justice, but circumstances are against me. My dream has always been to publish this autumn, but I’m having to face the possibility (rather, the reality) that this won’t happen.
So, my writing resolutions, faced with this possibility (reality), is that I shall finish this edit of Book 1 then shelve it and move onto Book 2 and all the prequels I have planned. Which is no bad thing, plus things will be in order for when circumstances do change. I shall also focus on a story that I love but isn’t as dear to me as The KeyMaster is. Inspiration is already striking, which I’ll take as a good sign! I think I might also try Wattpad once more.
Have you any resolutions?
