Camp NaNoWriMo, the lightweight, set-your-own-goal and work on whatever you want version of National Novel Writing Month, starts on Tuesday. Eek! I’ve had mixed luck with Camp NaNoWrimo, mostly because I try to edit during camp and then fail miserably. This year I do have a new idea to write from scratch, so I’m hoping for a win.
What is that idea, you ask? Funny you should ask. I’m considering a third Wrimonia novel. (Haven’t read the other two? Go fix that.
Adventures in Wrimonia: Mia Goes to Camp
Mia Wonnor has never gone to camp before. She’s also never done Camp NaNoWriMo. But when April comes around and Mia finds several unfinished novels taking over, Camp NaNoWriMo looks like a great chance to complete both at once. With Wrimos from all over the world sharing cabins and working on any creative project they want, creativity is in the air at Camp NaNoWriMo. Mia is ready to finish all the novels and maybe decide which one she wants to edit.
The problem is, conflict is in the air. Just as with any camp, there are cabinmate conflicts, character conflicts, and merit badges to be earned. There are nature hikes and the occasional bear. And the Block Ness Monster lurks in the lake, halting progress of anyone who dares approach…
And as always with the Wrimonia novels, I’ll be posting in installments once I’ve finished the book and fixed the typos.
You should join Mia and me at camp! It’ll be a lot of fun. I’ll be back at @NaNoWordSprints on Twitter, leading some word sprints for camp for maximum word count increasing.
And if April isn’t for you, Camp will return in July for more writing fun.
