Camp NaNo: Week Four

Wow. April has flown by, hasn’t it?

There’s only a week left for Camp NaNoWriMo. I hope everyone is on par for their word counts. Hopefully you guys are even a little bit ahead of the game.

Winning started on April 20, which was two days ago. So even though it’s not the end of the month yet, make sure you validate you word count (if you’re done, that is).

If you’ve hit your goal and still want to see how many more words you can get, more power to you. Just don’t forget to validate by the end of my month.

The very first time I participated in NaNo (back in 2008) I didn’t realize you had to validate your novel. I won, but it didn’t count because I didn’t validate. Lesson learned.

So, now that we only have a few days left…

  1. I almost “lost” last year as I was handwriting and couldn’t figure out how to validate my novel. I had mixed reviews from people telling me it didn’t count. In the end I ended up pasting a past story in the validation bar and “won”… On the last day. Still behind as of right now, but getting closer to finished. 🙂

    1. I think handwriting would be so much more work than typing. It’s probably slower, too. Maybe one day I’ll try it, but I doubt it, lol. Kudos to the people who do handwrite for NaNo.

      1. Last year it was easier for me as I was having so many issues with computers and I was able to carry around a notebook everywhere. I kind of wish I’d done the same for Camp, but oh well. It’s harder if you’re not used to writing, and my hand did cramp a lot, but you get used to it, and I found it kind of therapeutic.

      2. I’m sure it is. Every once in a while I get the itch to handwrite and my fingers won’t glide across the keyboard as smooth as they usually do.

Let me know what you think!
