(Over the past two months, I’ve been fighting to resurrect my laptop from the ashed of its latest crash, only to find that nothing can be done short of a hard drive wipe to fix the issues. It has been difficult to keep with with things through my husband’s smartphone, but we are working on a new fix for the issue. I appreciate your patience with the transition.)
Sweep out the mess hall and caulk the canoes – Camp NaNoWriMo 2015 is about to begin!
I know that many of you think that the campers are crazy – one month out of the year is bad enough, but now we’re heading into a second round of punishment? I find camp to be a relaxing venture into the depth of my novels, rather than the insanity that November brings. I love sitting through the extra months of writing, and love the extra support from others doing what we love to do – write!
Camp NaNoWriMo is what you make of it. Camp is about a small circle of writers, or no circle at all. It is about doing what you love at the pace that you set to reach the goals that you set. The biggest goal of Camp, just like NaNoWriMo in November, is to get the words written – but however many words you want to write (or how few) is completely up to you.
Our region hosts several events through the summer months, both indoors and outside. I host a write-in weekly at the Spring Arbor McDonalds on Fridays, as well as a write-in Wednesday afternoons, weather permitting, in Harmony Park (behind the Spring Arbor McDonalds). We also have our chat room, which is available 24/7/365, for whoever wants to join us. Hopefully we will see you there!
