Camp NaNo: what are you doing?

Several of my fellow bloggers and real life friends are getting involved in Camp NaNoWriMo, a mini summer version of the November phenomenon that encourages people to write their inner novel in a single month, to write every night without stopping to edit, with no concern for quality and to focus purely on getting the bare bones of the story out.

Though I am not actually taking part, I don’t have the time to bang out a novel through June, I am using it as an excuse to kickstart my fiction writing back to life. So far, I have had a little bit of success. Despite being only a few days into June I have completed my first short story since the end of 2011.

In the tradition of NaNoWriMo I edited nothing, paused only to figure out what to do next and when finished, I stopped and saved it intending to polish it later. The story in question was the dinner date episode I wanted to enter for the Arc 1.2 competition but discovered it too late to make the deadline. I’m as pleased as I can be with a first draft and no doubt will spend as much time on the edit but at least I finished something :)

For the rest of the month I’m going to work on my stationary steampunk novel so that from July it will hopefully be in full flow that I can focus on the novel and editing the short stories for my ebook anthology.

Good luck to any of you working on Camp Nano!
