After failing to finish NaNoWriMo last year I am giving it another go this July with Camp NaNoWriMo. You can get further details here
Camp NaNoWriMo is a more open-ended version of our original November event. We have Camp sessions in both April and July, and we welcome word-count goals between 10,000 and 1,000,000. In addition, writers may attempt non-novel projects. Camp is a creative retreat for whatever you’re working on!
I fancied a writing retreat this year, but couldn't justify the time or the expense. A virtual alternative fits the bill perfectly. My intention is to hand write the end of English Signals with a goal of fifty thousand words.
Writing using a pen and paper is slower that typing, but it allows me a bit more head space to explore the story. It also feels like fun and play rather than hard slog and work. Play is a major motivator for me, work is less so.
I'll post updates on progress.
