Camp WriMo

Well the folks at NaNoWriMo have decided to run a summer "camp" for keener WriMos out there. I know I usually get the urge to write mid-year and I have had to wait until November. I guess I was not alone and enough people asked about a summer WriMo that they had to put one together. So they did. Camp WriMo opened on July 1st and will run for a July and an August session. Both Simon and I have signed up and have started writing. Though, I have to admit that Summer writing is not as easy as Fall writing.  With the reasonably good weather and various holidays we have been out and about more with family events.  I am already 4599 words behind where I should be to make the 50k by the 31st. Unlike  the November writing I am not as concerned about finishing.  If I do I do, if not then I may have a start for the "real" WriMo later on.


  1. Yeah, I'm treating "Camp" as a means to clear the decks for November: Get this incomplete novel out of the way so I can start fresh for NaNoWriMo. Technically, I'm only a little behind a 50k word pace, but I don't have 50k words to write to finish this NaNovel, so it's moot.

    I really appreciate your taking Camp on. I wouldn't have done it on my own. <3

  2. I've started a new novel, but I'm so far behind that I won't finish by month's end. It seems more difficult to write in the summer than in the fall. I guess all the "good" weather encourages socializing and all the dreariness encourages hibernation. :D
