Camp NaNoWriMo Starts Tomorrow!

Need to set a little fire under yourself? Then sign up for Camp NaNoWriMo! It begins tomorrow and lasts the month of April, but unlike National Novel Writing Month (in November), you can set up ANY writing goal, in any genre (though poetry is not specifically included), and you decide how many words you need to attain.

My goal is to storyboard all the novels I'm planning to write for my fantasy series. I wrote a ten-page treatment last month covering my future screenplay Changing Christmas, and the hubby suggested I do the same thing for all the novels (even ones I am revising/rewriting), so THAT is my project. The fantasy series I've been developing (Novel #1 is mostly done, and #3 is partially written) is a paranormal sort of exploration of the Northwest through the eyes of a 15-year-old boy named Thomas. Hopefully this month will allow me to plan the whole thing out with more complexity than I've managed so far. I painted this picture YEARS ago, when Novel #3 was Novel #1, and I'm posting it up on the NaNo site, too.

Pretty exciting to start on this... now to finish the sign-up and get to work!

If NaNoWriMo is new to you, check out its website HERE. And donate to this organization, if you can! And if you want to join a campsite with me when you are there, just find me! I'm Shakespeare824, and I'd love to meet you and see the projects you have chosen for the month of April... so see you there!

Feel free tell me your own goals in the comments section below. Thanks!
