Hey, Germs! Camp NaNoWriMo is finished! If any of you were participating, I hope you completed your goal. I finished with a few hours to spare and 200 extra words, for a month-long total of 40,200. The actual project I was working on has over 80,000 words, though.
I really enjoyed working within the confines of Camp NaNoWriMo. The flexible goal was perfect. Being able to set my overall goal was probably the only reason I succeeded despite a rough month in terms of work and health (boo summer colds!).
Another part of camp that I really liked was the cabin system. While I had a very quiet cabin, for the most part, I did gain one really cool writing buddy. I hope that Germs who participated were able to connect with writers and make friends. It’s always more fun to be working with a friend; you can push each other to do better!
So, my Camp NaNoWriMo experience was a big success. I will definitely be participating next July. This is a great opportunity for writers who want to increase their output but don’t have the time for the full NaNoWriMo in November because of the flexible goal. Plus, there’s a great built-in support system with the cabins. And, if you’re shy, you can request your friends if you know their screenname.
Congratulations to everyone who won!
I will start gearing up for full NaNoWriMo soon!
