Announcements · National Novel Writing Month

Camp NaNoWriMo!

My friends,

I am excited to announce that for the first time ever, I will be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo! For those who don’t know of it already, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and is a challenge wherein one tries to write 50,000 words in the month of November. Some people think it is stupid or impossible, but I disagree.

My first NaNo was waaay back in 2006, and yes I wrote a crappy novel, but I DID finish it, and it helped to inspire some of my characters that I know and love today. Not only that, but participating in NaNo 2020 helped reinvigorate my writing, and helped me with writer’s block and depression.

The story that I started for NaNo 2020 – and wasn’t able to finish due to catching Covid – is about halfway to 50k words, now. My goal for Camp NaNo, which is in April, is to finish the rough draft of that story. It’s my YA historical, which I have posted about before, and posted an excerpt of in an earlier post.

Right now, a lot of writers are out there, working on their outlines, character bios, etc. Are you participating in Camp NaNo? If not, what are you working on?

I’m pleased to say, I already have my outline done for my Camp project, and about 22,000 words so far. I know my story will take over 50k, so my goal is to get all the way to the end in April. It’s a lofty goal, perhaps, but I feel determined to get it done. Then, it’s on to revisions. With some of the intriguing resources available on the Nanowrimo.org, I’m hoping even revision – which I find challenging – will be easier for me.

Share about your project in the comments!

Until next time,

Chaitanya
