You guys have no clue how excited I am for Camp NaNo tomorrow. I’m excited for several reasons.
- I won Camp NaNo in April last year. It’s the only one that I haven’t failed miserably at. I think April is just a good month for me,
- I haven’t written anything in months. And by that I mean I haven’t written a single paragraph. I’ve written some blog posts here and there but aside from that I’ve done nothing.
- I am going to be starting a whole new project.
I’m mostly excited about that last one. I’m actually going to be writing a middle grade novel, hopefully the first one in a whole series. I won’t go into specifics about this because I’m over possessive of my ideas and I worry about sharing anything publicly about them. Not because I really think any one would steal it but mostly because I don’t want criticism when I’m not ready for it. I’m still working out a lot of the plot for my novel but I feel like I have my characters pretty well figured out.
So far I’m not sure what my word count is going to end up being. Right now I left my goal at 50K but I keep thinking about moving it down to 25K since it’s middle grade and my first attempt.
Are you doing Camp NaNo in April? If so good luck and happy writing!
