Camp NaNoWriMo Day 2:

Okay, so I'm not as far along as I wanted to be at this point, but I'm still ahead of the pace. I spent more time than I planned yesterday filling some plot holes and reworking the plot a bit. That time wasn't wasted, it just threw me behind a bit. Planning on a marathon tomorrow to get even further ahead. 

Feels good to be writing again. Only doing NaNo in November, and therefore writing only one month a year was not a good thing. I plan on doing Camp again in July and NaNo in November. That's at least 150k words this year if I complete all three. That would be the most I have written in a year in a LONG time, if not ever! Okay, back to wording. The saga continues....

Well, I've signed up for CampNaNoWriMo for April. I have an idea (an old one of mine, actually,) but no real outline or notes. That means I'm going to pants the entire month!  We'll see how that goes (not holding my breath at this point.)  I need more than one month's worth of writing challenge a year, methinks. I'll probably take April 1 off (also because it's MLB Opening Day and I almost ALWAYS take that day off,) and see what I can crank out while watching six plus hours of baseball.

For November, I have a pretty good idea of what I want to write, and in May or June, I'm going to go through the steps in the book  First Draft in 30 Days to outline my project for WriMo. I'll blog the process so y'all can comment if you'd like.  I've read the book a couple times and I'm excited about trying the process now. I should have a fairly thick folder of notes and outline if I do it right.  Not sure how much I'll post between now and April 1, but I will be posting throughout April. Anyone else doing CampNaNo?
