Guess who’s signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo? This girl!
After I failed last November due to two colds and burning out, I wanted to try being a camper this time. And if you’re tempted to sign up, too, you’ll be thrilled to hear I’ve already done the prep work for you!*
*well, sort of
Last year October, I hosted weekly prep sessions for the big monster event. While your goal may not be 50k, being ready still can’t hurt.
If you missed the sessions last year or would like to refresh your memory, here they are again:
Weeks 1-3 come with free downloadable worksheets so you can get plotting right now! They cover all important basics but no more than that to stop you from over-preparing 😉
Whether you want to set rewards or not is up to you. My own goal is 17k, which doesn’t really feel worthy of a reward. If you shoot for 50k, you should definitely treat yourself to something!
If you’d like to do a bit of outside reading, I strongly recommend this book:
It’s short (it claims to be 50k, the length of a NaNoWriMo draft) and written by the father of NaNo, so you know it’s relevant!
What am I writing next month? I’ll be writing the first novella of my novella trilogy set in Midoka and Krymistis (if you’ve read my Relics of Ar’Zac books, you’ll be familiar with those). I’m aiming for 17k, and all three will be DARK, bloody, stabby, and possibly a tiny bit smutty. But no promises on the latter 😉
I wish I could share a bit more, but I haven’t got a title yet. I am, however, officially signed up and have created my own cabin. The CookieBreak Writers Retreat would love to have you if you’re taking part–I promise motivation and encouragement 😉
Since my cabin isn’t public, I don’t think I can attach a link to it. If you’d like to join, let me know what your NaNo username is and I’ll invite you 🙂

Happy plotting, NaNonites! <3
