NaNo Novel Progress

I’m more than a week into National Novel Writing month, so it’s about time for an update. I’m a NaNo Rebel this year, meaning I’m not following the usual NaNoWriMo protocol of beginning with a brand new novel project at the beginning of the month and planning to write 50,000 words on it during theContinue reading “NaNo Novel Progress”

I’m not terribly far behind, butContinue reading “Camp NaNo Update”

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 theContinue reading “Return to Writing Camp”

Novel Progress: One Step Forward, Two Back

At the end of April I was pleased to announce that I had written more than 20,000 words of the YA science fiction novel that month, meeting my Camp NaNoWriMo goal for April. I’ve been writing since then, and today went to add up the words to see how much further I had progressed inContinue reading “Novel Progress: One Step Forward, Two Back”

Happy NaNo Camper

Woo hoo! I just hit my Camp NaNoWriMo goal for the month, and with a whole day to spare. Camp NaNoWriMo, which happens every year in April and July, is the more flexible version of NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, which happens in November. The November version is a challenge for writers to startContinue reading “Happy NaNo Camper”
