I don’t know how it’s almost April. But it is. And that means many writers start thinking about Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m no exception.
I don’t have everything worked out, but I do know that as of right now, I’m going to handwrite a memoir. How exciting, huh?
I’ve never felt like I had any right to write one. I welcome the challenge though. Bring it on.
Why handwrite? Because I love handwriting more than typing. It’s also easier to write in a notebook when I’m on the bus than to whip out a laptop.
Also, my eyes don’t like staring at screens for long periods of time.
I’m not planning to outline because when do I ever? Never.
I don’t outline articles, essays, or novels. Funny story that isn’t that funny because I’m not hilarious: the one novel I semi-outlined is still unfinished.
I don’t keep track of how many words I write every day. I’m lazy.
I’m not aiming to write 50,000 words in April or 1,667 words a day. I just want to write something. Hopefully, I’ll have some words to work with once it’s all said and done.
That’s all I have. Regardless of what you’re writing or how much you manage to write, I hope you have a great Camp NaNoWriMo. It’s hard work. But it’s fun if you have the right attitude, which I’m sure you do..
Even though I love writing, I don’t want to abandon this blog in April. Finding a balance won’t be easy. What is?
As always, happy writing. Have fun. Enjoy yourself. Write whatever you please.
