The amazing people over at NaNoWriMo are running another summer camp starting August 1st.
I did not do so well in the June camp, but I have confidence August will be different. For one, the writing is coming easier now. And two, I am going to set myself an entirely reasonable goal.
(Don’t worry, I’m all in for 50,000 words in November.)
Apparently 30,000 words was too much in June–I managed just under 22,000–I am averaging around 500 words a night this month–but that was free-writing with very little thought toward plot and character arcs. Now that I’m working on another novel with an eye to publication, I need to allow myself to progress more slowly. So I’m thinking 20,000 will be a decent challenge.
I wish everyone who is shooting for 50,000 the best of luck. I am looking forward to playing for real in November!
