It’s Camp NaNo Time! Camp NaNoWriMo most recently happened in April. I met my writing goal that month, and am now camping out in the July version.
Camp NaNoWriMo is a virtual camp that encourages participants to set a goal and work on a writing project all month. It’s a more flexible version of the better known November writing challenge, NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, in which participants attempt to write a 50,000-word novel in a month (or 50,000 words of a longer novel). NaNo Campers don’t have to stick with the 50,000-word goal, but can set their own.
As in April, I’ve set my goal at 20,000 words again, which is roughly 645 words a day (slightly less than the daily target in April, when my goal was the same, but the month had only 30 days instead of 31). I’m working on the same project I was writing then, and I hope to have a much larger chunk of the novel completed by the end of the month. The book is a science-fiction novel aimed at the young-adult market.
