Our blog has had a serious lack of focus the last month. I forgot to give the proper reminders and blame myself as…err…I guess kind of the leader. But it’s a new month and we’re going to start fresh.
Our usual group meeting did not take place on a Friday evening. Instead, we had a BBQ at another member’s home and it was fabulous. This was a family and friends event, opening the party to those close to us, including dogs. My dogs had a great time as did my hubby. We tend to be terrible about actual writing when we get together as a writing group. We know that’s the point of this group, to write, but there is something that clicks and works with us and we like it! So we do other fun stuff and make up reasons it relates to writing so we feel less guilty about having fun. Ha!
Moving on... Nanowrimo, the thing that brought this group together, is presenting, for the first time ever,
. Popped up just when Write On was going to do their own writing month so we’re scrapping our own idea for the summer and working on the big company’s plan instead. The same rules apply: 50K in 30/31 days. You can do July or August or aggressively write in both. We had members iffy on this camp project but already a few are up over 2K in words with one over 10K. Where am I? Umm…my character has a name! Camp Nanowrimo
What am I doing for
? I thought I was going to be a rebel-light. Rebels don’t follow all the rules obviously and due short stories or continue on some project instead of starting new. I thought that was going to be me. I’m going to work on my fairy tales which of course is a collection of short stories, but because they are related in theme and I would like to present them as one book, it fit the rules. I have one started, and I was going to continue on in it, but decided to not break that rule either and start on a new fairy tale. All this means I may not be a rebel after all. I have a hard time breaking rules. I blame my parents! Camp Nanowrimo
My problem with this right now is the same that I always have…my lack of focus. Here it is the start of the third day of
, and I wrote nothing for day one or two. I still need to plot out the details of my current fairytale cause I work better with a good plan of action. It’s not a good start but I’m trying not to be discouraged. Now that I know more members of our group are doing this, I feel a little competition going ,and I have some serious catching up to do. And with that, I shall go write! Camp Nanowrimo
Good luck writing this month!!!
