Another Happy NaNo Camper

The month is not over, but I have met my Camp NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000 words on my novel!

NaNoWriMo is, of course, short for National Novel Writing Month. The original NaNo takes place every year in November, when participants around the world attempt to write a 50,000-word novel draft — or 50,000 words of a longer novel — in a month. Camp NaNo months, including April, offer a lower-pressure and more flexible challenge. You can set your own goal, and work on whatever project you want. That may be writing the first draft of a novel, but it could also be outlining or editing a novel, writing a collection of poetry or short stories, or trying your hand at a screenplay.

I stuck with the 50,000-word goal this time, but I’m editing a draft I completed in November NaNo. So my word count may be misleading. I just haven’t come up with a better way of measuring my progress while editing. In any case, I have hit the goal and will continue editing throughout the month — and afterward, until I complete this book.
