Only 9 days left until the madness of Camp Nano starts. For those of you who might not know what this is, Camp Nanowrimo is the summer version of Nanowrimo. Nanowrimo is in November, it’s a challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days. The difference between the two is that in Camp Nano you can write novel, short story, screen play, whatever you want. Also you can set your own wordcount, it can be 5,000 or 70,000, or whatever.
Starting July 1st I am planning on writing 50,000 words on a novel. The only problem right now is that I have no idea what to write about. A few ideas have caught my casual interest, but nothing has grabbed at my attention with real force. I like to be super excited and pumped up about a novel idea before I attempt to write 50,000 words on it.
I admit I am a little worried that I won’t be able to get an exciting idea. I’m doing my best to write down characters and sentences that might amount to something, but only time will tell if they come together.
Is anyone else doing Camp Nano this year? Do you have your novel all ready, or are you having problems like me? If anyone has advice for getting novel ideas please share! Thanks. 🙂
