Default Camp NaNoWriMo July 2017

IT'S ALMOST THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN, Y'ALL

So! If you're not aware, Camp NaNoWriMo is a more flexible variant of NaNoWriMo proper; if you're not familiar with THAT, NaNo is a thing in November that encourages you to write 50,000 words for your story! Camp NaNo, therefore, is a bi-yearly thing (April and July) that allows you to customize your word goal further.

Like me and am not only bad at properly motivating yourself to write BUT ALSO taking a vacation the last week of the month and need it to be lower? Can do!

Feeling masochistic and wanna write more? I have a few questions about your personal priorities, but I presume you can do it.

SO! Last year the lovely Sandstone-Shadow organized a little tCoD cabin to get us all motivated throughout July, and I think it'd be cool if we did it again! I suspect cabins won't actually be a thing till June at least, so we all got time.

Soooooo if you want in, post in here and let me know! It'll be fun, at least to see me get to like July 20th and be like "I HAVE WRITTEN NOTHING"

The List
1) Flora (Little Chavaleh)
2) JackPK (pumpkinking0192)
3) effervesce (auhnix)
4) Sandstone-Shadow (qyuarkrien)
5) Nira (qvalador)
6) Mhals (mhaladie)


Also talk about your projects! I wanna know what y'all are doin~

aaaaa I may regret it but I think I'm gonna try again this year!

I don't remember how getting into a cabin works, but if you need my Camp NaNo account name to add me, it's pumpkinking0192!

I actually just had a breakthrough recently on an idea I'd had simmering in my brain for like three years now as simply a fantasy novel setting, and now with my breakthrough I finally have a plot to put in it! so hopefully the month and a half or so until July will give me enough time to work out the flesh in the middle of the plot without being so much time that I lose interest.

I've never been able to keep up with a NaNo variant past about day 5-ish, so this time I think I'm just going to not set a word count goal at all and instead I'll just aim to write at least something every day.

Ah! I'm down! My life could potentially be a chaotic "moving across states and starting a new job and traveling" but somehow I think chaos helps me write...?

I'm not sure what I should write. I'd like to keep going on my current story, revising and editing, or maybe I should just take a break from it and try to write something new??

All gotten down! I also opted to put all the camp nano usernames in the list (shoulda been doing that from the start really) so everyone knows who they're talking to haha
