Following on from my previous post, I’ve spent some time since considering ways I can get some writing confidence back again. Then, during one of my frequent scrolls through my Twitter feed, I got reminded that July is the 2nd Camp NaNoWriMo this year.
As I said in a couple of recent posts, I’ve been thinking about what to do for this year’s NaNoWriMo project and how best to tackle it. Well, I’ve made some decisions, now I just need to implement them.
The end of August is rapidly approaching which means we’re only a couple of months away from some things of note. The first is our (almost) annual holiday in Florida. The other is NaNoWriMo. I’ve been giving the latter a little bit of thought over the past few days.
Last night, I attended my first local NaNoWriMo Write-In event and, overall, I think it went quite well. So I wanted to say thank you to everyone who helps organizing them and share my thoughts about it..
Britt said to me the other day that I should give myself some grace. That’s not something I’m very good at. Her remark was in relation to something else but it did highlight the fact that I’m often hard on myself.
Ever since Monday’s post, I’ve kept coming back to the notion of doing NaNoWriMo this year. Once the idea was in my head, it has simply refused to leave.
Earlier today, I was asked if I was taking part in NaNoWriMo, or the National Novel Writing Month. Up until now, I had dismissed the idea but thinking about it today I started to list some pros and cons.
