Camp NaNoWriMo: July Plans!

camp nano july plans

I have an up and down relationship with Nano. Sometimes I love it and think it’s awesome, other times I hate the quality of the words I write during it and scrap everything to start over. However, regardless of how good the results are, Nano is a great way to kick start writing after a break!

I’ve not worked on any of my WIP for ages, partly because of my MA, and partly because I keep getting stuck in the middle of my stories and second guessing them. For Camp July I want to rediscover the fun of writing, write for myself, and hopefully find my lost muses.

My target is 25000 words on whatever project I want, provided I hit my word count goal. I won’t pressure myself to finish a set percentage of a work in progress, or to write anything high quality. My main goal is to have fun.

I’ll bounce between stories and chase my muse wherever it leads to see where I end up. This could be the spires of Dragonspire, the magic of Second Chance, or any of the random story ideas I’ve had in the past few months.

I hope to get over writer’s block, perfectionism, and whatever else is stopping me from finishing a first draft. I’ll write purely to have fun and amuse myself, just like I did when I was little, scribbling stories and sketches on whatever paper I could find.

After Camp, when I’ve hopefully found my muses again, I’ll focus on finishing a first draft. Wish me luck!
