All right – so I have just signed up for Nanowrimo Summer Camp.
I know. I am mad. I am crazy. I am one of the herd and will most likely be either trampled by the younger stronger bucks or I will lag behind and get picked off by the most dangerous and ravenous e-hyenas.
I am aiming for a 50,000 word YA novel – beginning on July 1, 2014 and winding up on July 31, 2014. That’s looking at 1612 words a day.
Which is a lot.
I know some writers can pump out two or three or five thousand words a day easily – but I’ve been grinding my wheels a bit and I would like to do something to help kickstart my progress forward.
I am writing a time travel novel set on Citadel Hill, right here in Halifax.
There are also a couple of ghosts based on an authentic Halifax Citadel Hill ghost story to thicken the brew. This is a story I have had kicking around in my head for some time now and I am truly looking forward to finally getting it written down.
Wish me luck!
yours in storytelling,
(PS – for those folks who don’t know what NaNoWriMo means – it simply is NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH!)
