Camp NaNo: April 2017

Last November, I took advantage of NaNoWriMo to write the draft of Hold Me Now, which has been poked at by two of nine betas. I’m still sifting through my changes a la my most recent beta, and I think I’m going to take advantage of the upcoming Camp NaNo not to write another novel (which I could easily do), but to force myself to pick through the manuscript again, send it to my third beta, draft a query letter, then go back through the manuscript.

I’ll still work on other projects, but my goal is 30 hours for this time through. An hour a day? Cake. Miss a day? Simple to make up. And I fully expect to double this by the time the month is over.

I don’t know yet if I’ll have a cabin – mostly because I’ve set it to private, and I’m not sure whether my friends are doing Camp NaNo this year. Either way, I’ve got the cabin set up and ready for Natalie and others to join in on the fun! Still have plenty of weeks to convince people to join in on Camp NaNo with me.

Are you doing Camp NaNo this year? April, July, or both? Anyone doing the revision mode? Tell me your plans, ask questions about the structure, or just share well-wishes for fellow NaNoers in the comments section below! Want to be in my cabin? Let me know!




Another NaNo Update

In NaNoWriMo news, I have broken the 40k mark. I’m also in my tenth chapter, which means I’m right on track to be about halfway through my novel, and since November is half over, this is a good sign.

On the other hand, there’s this thing called school which is most definitely picking up at the moment, with three rather large papers I feel I’ve barely started going into. SO, yes, I will hit the 50k mark, but I might be finishing To the End of the Earth over Christmas break instead of over the next few weeks.


But life does that.

And I think that’s all on the update for the moment.
