July’s Camp NaNoWriMo

I absolutely failed at April’s Camp NaNoWriMo. Completely. I have no words and no excuses, it just didn’t happen for me. But I won’t dwell on the past, but instead look forward to July’s Camp… (If you want to learn more about NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo here’s the link to the site: https://nanowrimo.org/)

I’ve already decided I am going to participate, which is quite novel for me. Usually, it’s a last minute decision, often with only a slight nod towards planning. But this time, I have weeks to prepare! Yay! (Famous last words…?)

If you read my Tolkien Tuesday post from a few weeks ago, you might remember that I posted it a day late because I was putting together my step-by-step novel outlining process. Well that turned into a 17 page workbook, the premise of which is to create a full story outline in less than day. This is for my shorter outlining process. I do have another one which is much longer and much more in-depth, but this one I find is also good for novellas and short stories, as well as for reacquainting myself with a story I’ve taken a break from, one that perhaps lacked a certain depth in planning πŸ™‚

So, in the weeks running up to Camp, I will be working through this workbook, which I’m really looking forward to (I know that probably sounds strange).

On a different note, I think I have managed to catch-up on the all comments I was behind with. So yay again!

Who is this new organised Sammi? I have no idea but I like her πŸ™‚

Anyone else considering joining in with Camp NaNo in July? Let me know in the comments.

You can find me over on the NaNoWriMo website by searching for my username: Sammi Cox

  1. Yes! I, too, failed miserably in April’s NaNo, and Yes! I, too, plan on doing July’s camp NaNo. Maybe our good vibes rubbing together will make it a success. That said, I have as yet no plan.

  2. I’ve had a look but what to do, that is the question. I’m struggling with major writer’s block, so …. (PS – if you see a requested from Debbie on NaNoWriMo, it’s me)

    • Oh no, writer’s block…sigh 😦 I tend to have the opposite problem – too much inspiration so I want to write EVERYTHING! – but its effects are the same…no writing gets done.

      And thanks for the buddy request – seen and accepted πŸ™‚
