April, July, and November have a funny way of creeping up on me. And despite what I do, I tend to feel surprised when Camp NaNo is finally underway. I refuse to be caught unawares this year. When July 1st rolls around, I hope I’m as prepared as I can be.
I usually “prepare” by thinking about Camp and what I want to accomplish but not doing anything about it. Then when it’s time to write 50,000 words, I’m in no shape to because I’m lucky if I even write 500 words in a day.
Maybe I should go in with a better plan this time around. A more concrete plan rather than just “write a novel in one month”.
I’m planning to edit more this July. I’ll still write creatively because I can’t not write. But I’d like to focus on editing old stories or perhaps a previous novel. I haven’t decided yet. That’s the problem. I’m indecisive.
I still have four days to figure it out. So do you. Unless you live on another planet. Or you’re reading this many hours later.
Are you prepared? Camp is almost here!
