|Stop. Mocking. Me.
Okay, so I’m not really going camping. That would be silly. We all know Hildred doesn’t go outside without whining a whole lot about it. Besides, camping sucks. There’s like…bugs. And no electricity. And it’s during those grossly hot months. And you’re expected to squat and pee. NO THANK YOU. Instead I’ll be doing my camping online this summer, because I’ve just officially signed myself up for Camp NaNoWriMo!
I’m not surprised if you haven’t heard of it. It’s been pretty hush hush until the site was unveiled a couple of days ago. Basically what it is is…Nanowrimo in the summer! I think the goal is to be able to run it all year round so you can essentially choose what months you want to nano in if November sucks for you, but for now it’s in beta for July and fully functional in August.
Well, of course I signed up. I’ve got nothing better to do with my time outside of work – lol what like i have friends. It’ll be good for me anyway. I’ve been so deep in editing lately that I really need to just write again before my brain turns to mush. So, for Camp Nano, I will be starting a totally new novel once more. I will be working on the first of two planned prequel stories to the CROSS// saga, this one in particular focusing on the original incarnations of our heroes. The reason why I want to write it now is because I really need to get a lot of this backstory down on paper for my own reference if nothing else! I’ll only be doing the August session, however, because July this year is super busy at work for me and I want to keep editing for now since I’m on a roll with it.
If you would like to be my camping buddy, feel free to add me as a friend! My link is below!
At least with this kind of camping I can’t get any sun burns…
