Author’s Note: This was written on time, but then not posted till 2 days after it was supposed to be, so the dates are off in this.
This post was a bit late in being posted. I usually try and post around noon ET/EST but it doesn’t always work that way. Part of it will be explained later in this post.
Today is the 18th, which means we are a bit past the halfway mark for April’s Camp Nano event. For those of you just turning in, Camp Nano is a twice a year event in which writers gather to attempt to reach writing goals. Its a spin off of the larger event, NanoWrimo that is held every November. Unlike the Full Nano, Camp Nano is more personizable. You can choose your word count, make cabins withyour friends who are also partispating and in general just have a good time. Nano is a bit more focused, though just as fun.
This year, my goal was to write 30,000 words. Not that hard for me usually, but it seems that life has other plans. This month I have been continuously sick with a cold-slash-sinus infection which not only makes me an unhappy camper, it also makes my ability to write go down. I just don’t feel like doing much of anything other then lay down and watch a show where people screw up cakes. Most of my writing this month has been posts for this blog, and an email to my mother.
I’m still endeavouring to met my goal. I have a few days off in a row in the near future where I plan on resting (to get better) and writing (to get ot my goal). Hopefully at the end of the month I can tell you I actually made it. I’m probably about 15,000 words behind at this point, but I shall conquer the writer’s block!
I do think however that my goal of finishing two of my long-awaiting to be finished stories will not happen. I’m almost finished with them, so hopefully within the next month I will finish. I just don’t think it will happen this month at the rate I am going. However, I will be finishing the pre-planned posts for this month. Including Friday’s Women of History post, this time featuring astronaut Sally K. Ride, and Monday’s post which will be a list of writing resources. If you have any favorites of your own, feel free to tell me. I always welcome new suggestions to try out.
Hope your month is going well for you, and that this spring-in-winter’s-clothing ends soon so the germs will lay off.
