It’s that time again… National Novel Writing Month. If you’re thinking that’s normally November, you’re right, but it turns out this is an awfully popular passtime, and some people want to do it at other times during the year too.
I’m going to go along with them. I’m signed up at Camp NaNoWriMo, the two-time summer branch of the organization, and will also be flying the JuNoWriMo banner.
It’s been June 1st for a little over an hour now, and I’m not real sure exactly what I’m going to write, but I’ll figure it out.
One big change from November is that this time I’m going to avoid the whole series of short stories thing. I found it difficult to maintain momentum when I had to stop and think up a whole new story at least once a week. So this time it’ll be a longer story I can just plow through.
Camp NaNoWriMo in June is only part one. They also apparently have Camp NaNoWriMo August, which is interesting since it’s a 31 day month, not 30. I’m not sure if I’m crazy enough to do that with only one month in between, but right now, before the madness, it’s kind of tempting.
Wish me luck!
