I Dare You to Go Camping!

As the first of April (much too quickly) approaches us, I’m getting my imaginary writing closet organized. I’m finishing up my current draft to make room for a new draft while I edit the first.

I’ve never been good at juggling. I mean if setting one ball on the ground while grabbing the other two counts then I’m a pro. But it is an inevitable part of a writer’s life to have more than one project swimming around the mind at the same time.

Camp NaNoWriMo (which stands for National Novel Writing Month) begins on the first. What is awesome about the April edition is that you can set your own word count goal. Want to write 10,000 words on the book you started but never finished? Or do you want to write an entire novel in a month?

The sky is the limit. Actually I think 999,999 thousand words is the limit.

So whether you’re a full-time writer or a fickle dabbler, join me this seasonably warm April for a virtual writing campout. All you need is a pen and paper, or perhaps a stone tablet (see previous post), and your wits.
