I am going to participate in Camp NaNo in April and hopefully I will finish the first draft of my second book. My word goal for the month of April is 30,000 words. I’ve got a little over 20,000 words already, and I figure 30,000 more should get me to the end, or at least close to it. And if I end up going over my word goal, awesome! My goal from the beginning of the year has been to finish the first drafts of the four books I have (very loosely) outlined by the end of the year so that I can start polishing them up and getting them ready for publication.
If there is anyone in Jefferson City, MO (or nearby) who is participating, I would love for you to join my Meetup Group: Jefferson City Novelist Group. I will be organizing some meetups just for those participating in NaNo this year, in April, July and of course, November. I think it would be awesome to see some local authors reach their word goals and celebrate together and encourage each other as we try to accomplish the not easy task of writing a book in one month.
Good luck to all of you NaNo campers out there!
