Ah, in just eight hours, Camp Nanowrimo opens up its doors to me and my fellow writers. So what are my plans for April Camp Nano? I’m editing and adding onto a novel I previously started two summers ago. And go figure, it’s a Young Adult novel about a girl who goes to camp and falls for a guy a few years older than her.
I have to say, I’m excited about writing this year. I feel like I’m getting close to having something worth publishing (with the help of my two readers and editing husband). I admit, my grammar sucks but I love coming up with fictional characters and a new world.
I currently have 31k words on this novel and they goal is to hit 75-76k words before April is over. It would be nice if I could have it sent to a publisher before the summer is up, considering the title is ‘The Last July’ and it makes for a great teen summer read. We’ll see what happens!
I’m not excited about the after camp editing, but I am excited for adding in scenes and growing my characters.
I’ll update every Friday about where I am in the process and some tips on how to survive Camp Nanowrimo. Time to rest my fingers for the next couple thousand words….
