I'm debating signing up for Camp NaNoWriMo this August (if you haven't heard about it yet, click the link). I failed NaNoWriMo last year (2010), as well as in 2009 and a few others years that I attempted it. So what makes me think I can succeed this time? I really don't know. I do know that in order to win, I need to believe I can. Considering I've barely written a few hundred words over the past month, writing 1667 words a day will be quite a challenge for me. But August is the perfect time for me to try. My online summer class ends on the 4th, and I don't start my fall classes until September 1st. I have nothing coming up that I need to work on, nowhere to go, etc. If I'm going to bang out 50k words in a month, the time is now.
Whaddya think? Should I go for it? I'll have to stop sleeping 'till noon - 1 pm every day, for starters. But I want to do that anyway. I need to go back on Weight Watchers starting Monday too. And I need to start exercising. So if I start getting up at a decent hour, I can find plenty of time to write. Can I find the motivation to write is the question. That is what I've been severely lacking the past few months. Having a concrete goal (50k in a month) is a good place to start, but I'm just not sure if it will be to overwhelming for me.
Hmmmmm. I'll letcha know what I decide in a few days. How 'bout you? Are you doing Camp NaNo yourself in August? Did you do it this July? Do you think NaNo should just stick to November? I'd love to know what you think :)
