Camp NaNoWriMo – Writing Tag


I’m participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this April, and I found a tag on Youtube that I stole (as usual) and thought I’d answer, because tags are fun! πŸ™‚

1. What are you working on for this year’s Camp NaNoWriMo?

I actually work on two projects. The first is the collaboration with Kris T. Bethke. Just sent her chapter 6, and guys, we’re almost half way done!! Wohoo. We’re having so much fun. The second project is something new for me: it’s a fantasy story. Still gay romance of course, but I usually do contemporary so this is different. I enjoy it so far. And I’m in love with my idea, which is always a great place to start, right?

2. How many Camp NaNoWriMos have you participated in?

This is my third. Did April and July in 2017. I probably won’t be able to participate in July’s Camp, because if all goes as planned, my darling daughter will come for a visit in July and I can’t very well abandon her and sayΒ Shush, Mom has to write. Go to your room can I? πŸ˜€

3. How will you be tracking your progress?

I have a very fancy Excel document where I enter the word count of the day. I need to write 667 words/day to finish, which up until yesterday meant I had to write 2000 words to be on track. And I’m currently at 4400, so I’m in great shape.

4. “What’s in your bag?” What are your writing must-haves?

I need something to drink. Tea or water – both works. And I need my notebooks and pens, because lately I’m doing most of my writing by hand. That’s it.


5. What kind of cabin are you in? How did you choose your cabin? (And if you don’t have a cabin, why not?)

I’m in a cabin with several writers from my publisher JMS Books. I love it. It has been the best part of Camp the previous two times.

6. “Camp NaNoWriMo vs. NaNoWriMo” What do you do differently? Which do you prefer?

I prefer Camp, because I can set my own word goal. Committing to writing 50K words in one month is too much for me, so I only do Camp. And this time my goal is 20K. Maybe, I’ll up it, but we’ll see. There’s still time.
