Camp NaNo: Ten Days In

It’s the tenth day of Camp NaNoWriMo, and I am speeding ahead with my book. NaNoWriMo is, of course, National Writing Month. It’s officially in November, but Camp NaNo is the more flexible version, and it’s happening now in April. I’m working on a science-fiction novel, which I started some time ago.

Last night, with an hour and forty-five minutes left in the month, I achieved that revised goal. AsContinue reading “Camp NaNo Progress: Month’s End”
