Going To Camp

Following on from my previous post, I’ve spent some time since considering ways I can get some writing confidence (what little I have) back again. Then, during one of my frequent scrolls through my Twitter feed, I got reminded that July is the 2nd Camp NaNoWriMo this year.

While I’ve had two previous attempts at NaNoWriMo, I’ve never tried Camp NaNo but I think it could be a good thing for me. For one thing, since the goals are self-set, I have a better chance of hitting those targets and actually feeling that I accomplished something. For another, although I’ve been to write-ins, I’ve never really had much experience of the social side of NaNo. So maybe the cabins will be a good experience for me. If nothing else, it should help me stay accountable.

So now that I’ve made the decision to give it a shot, there are a few other decisions to be made. I’ll be working on House In Exile but I still need to work out what targets I want to set. Sorting out the bits and pieces already written? Only writing new material? Some combination of the two?

I also have to think about the cabin situation; do I trust to random assignment or do I see if I can join an existing one? And, since assignment happens in the next few days I’d better work that out pretty quick…

  1. Cabins vary a LOT by who is in them and how well the others stay on track.

    I’ve had silent cabins, ones with weekly check-ins, and some pretty chatty ones.

    Best of luck for the ‘write’ mix for you.
