Camp NaNoWriMo starts today! I went into not knowing what I was going to write. I have a long list of project ideas, but I didn’t really have anything planned other than some very general story ideas and writing prompts. I was trying to figure out what to work on when I remembered an idea that’s been simmering for a while. A friend of mine wrote a blog series on trying something new every day for a month, which gave me the idea to write a journal-type story from the point of view of a character doing something similar. I decided this afternoon that would be the perfect project for this month! It gives me something to write about every day, it doesn’t need an over-arching plot right now, and the entries can vary in length. I looked over my current list of name ideas and the perfect name for the character jumped out at me. Things are starting to fall into place, and I have a long list of ideas for new things for her to try. Depending on how it turns out, I might do some revisions over the next couple of months and post it when I’m done. I think I’ll continue it as a series as well, with her and her best friend doing various challenges together and learning and growing through the journey. I’m excited about where it will go!
This blog post brings me to 518 words for the day, which is great, because I need to average 334 a day to reach my goal for the month!
