I'm Getting Ready for Camp NaNoWriMo
Tomorrow is the 1st of July, and thus it's the start of another Camp NaNoWriMo. What's that? Well, it started out one November being National Novel Writing Month. With growing popularity worldwide, it now also offers the camps in a couple of other months.
I took part in one of theNaNoWriMos some years ago, writing the draft of a cozy mystery called Bad Weather, Bad Man which I later published as part of a trilogy. Since then I haven't taken part but I've written several books on my own.
But I admit I've been procrastinating about the book ahead of me, a memoir about my father, the science fiction writer Cordwainer Smith. So when I got an email that a new camp starts tomorrow, I decided to go for it. I think that's partly because I've learned here in WA how helpful encourgement from others can be.My goal will be to write about 1000 words a day on the memoir. That will certainly leave me plenty of time here. I'll add a link to my corner of NaNoWriMo in my website links. My name there is Bookfiend.
Guess I'd better clean up my office today.
