The countdown has begun! Nine days remain until CampNaNoWriMo begins on 1st April for thirty glorious days. The project will be the second half of my current book, so I'm hoping to finish draft one by 30th April. I'll be aiming for the 50,000 words, though CampNaNo is slightly different from its big bro in November, as you can choose your own target be it editing, a specific word count or any other writerly pursuit!
To reach 50,000 the daily word count needs to be 1667 bright, sparkling words. I tend to go over the required minimum each day, as experience has taught me that life usually throws me a curve ball during a NaNoWriMo event, so getting ahead is my best option.
My current project is set in Cumbria, in a rented cottage filled with women! I began writing draft one on 1st March knowing April's challenge would complete the story. So far, so good as manuscripts go. I've slightly changed my method of writing with this book, processes change and evolve with each book, to be honest. I'm loving my characters, whilst not liking some of their behaviour - which makes for interesting writing.
CampNaNoWriMo is free to join, open to anyone who wishes to participate. Link: here
