Day One of Camp NaNo

camp nano logo

Good morning!

The first day wasn’t too bad, mostly just setting everything up and hoping it sounds mysterious enough. I’m still not completely sure whether I want to concentrate on the story I chose, but I probably still have a day or two to change if need be. I’m having fun, but I mostly just grabbed it out of my pile of possibles in a blind panic, which I suppose is what I get for putting it off until the last moment.

Is anyone else going through this madness? Come share! My cabin this year is surprisingly quiet so far, so I’d love to hear about anyone’s project.

Another Year, Another NaPoWriMo Challenge

Hello everyone!

Spring is finally here in Vancouver, which means we have at least a month of torrential downpours accented by hints of sun to look forward to. So, perfect writing weather.

Once again I’ll be participating in NaPoWriMo and CampNaNoWriMo throughout April. I’ll be posting the poetry here, and possibly snippets of my NaNo project if I have anything I’m particularly proud/frustrated about, so watch this space!

The State of the Thing

Hello everyone! How are you enjoying June? In Vancouver so far our first 40-ish hours have been half a day of sunny heat, half a day of grey-ish heat, and a long thunderstorm. So, about the usual.

I’m going to try to post 30 poems and 30 short stories in June to warm up for this year’s Camp NaNoWriMo. Who knows how close I’ll come, with the way my schedule goes, but I’ll at least get most of it up. It probably won’t be a daily thing, but I’ll figure out at least an outline of a posting schedule. Wish me luck!

In other news, my novel is coming along very nicely. Today I made a hard-line accountability bet/deal trade with my best friend to get it out by the last day of August or else suffer the consequences, so there will be something to read of it very soon.
