It’s Camp Nano Time!

J Logo 75If you’re a procrastinator like me, then it’s the day before a month-long writing fest where the goal is to get approximately 50k new words down on paper…which will then be the rough draft of a brand new book. Yeah. It’s March 31st and the write-a-thon starts tomorrow, April 1st. This is me, scrambling for my Storyboard, 3×5 Note Cards, Scene and Sequel Worksheets, Conflict Worksheets…and where-oh-where did I file that Synopsis I’d drafted a while back?

It’s all good though. I’ve found all my cheat sheets that will get this story kick-started. I’ve made a date to spend the day with a writer friend, too. Together, we’ll brainstorm all the basics, drink a couple gallons of iced tea, and end the day with a couple fun new books. Then, it’s solitary confinement for the month of April as we hit those keyboards.

See y’all on the other side of a finished book. Wish us luck!

  1. Thanks C & D, and good luck to you, too! My plotting/brainstorming date went better than I’d hoped, so now have a shell of a storyline to work from. I wouldn’t know how to work in tandem with another writer, though. You two are amazing! 🙂

    • Wow, Maura, your encouragement came at just the right moment. I’ve been putting all the brainstormed note cards from yesterday in order, and still working out the basic plot. Just looked at the clock and it’s past supper time. OMG! Haven’t actually WRITTEN anything–yet. Me, off to whip out the opening scene. 🙂
