Camp NaNoWriMo July 2022

I’ve had this domain for over two years now, and I’m finally doing something with it!

Okay, I decided spur of the moment to set a (very) small goal for myself (100 words a day) and see if that gets me writing again. I miss it. Daily journal entries don’t count (those, at least, I know I can maintain. Baby steps).

I’m using Novlr (another purchase I made when I “won” NaNo at the end of 2020) to keep track. I hand wrote my first attempt late last night, and typed it into Novlr this morning: 167 words. On track.

I’m playing with my “forever” novel, the one I’ve had in mind for over 30 years. I worked on it during NaNo 2015, but didn’t get far. I have it in notebooks all over, started and stopped on a regular basis. I have learned many things about myself, my history, and the city of Detroit (the setting) in the past 4 years especially, that have helped shape the story in my mind. When I try to switch stories (like with my 2020 NaNo), I stretch my writing muscles, but always return to the Forever Novel when I think about writing.

I’m going to look at what I wrote in 2015, and perhaps my 2020 work (a whole fresh topic, that I had a lot of fun with), especially if I feel like I’m flagging at Camp.
