Three Days Before July 2016’s Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNoWriMo starts in three days. Who’s ready? I’m not.

I’ll be adding 50,000 words to my novel Hunter that’s already about 50,000 words in.

It’s outlined and halfway or so finished, so there’s not too much planning involved.

But I do have to read through what I have so far. I can’t add on words when I have no idea what already happened in the story.

Sure, I could just read the outline, but then I wouldn’t get the full effect. I wouldn’t have all the details.

So, in the next three days, I have to read 50,000 words of my novel and figure out where I want to go next with the story.

I thought I had more time than this. Time got away from me this month. I’m not really sure how that happened.

Are you prepared for Camp to start?

  1. I’m getting there! I’m starting a brand new project that I’m really excited about. I’ve never written off of an outline before but I’ve actually got one this time. We’ll see how it changes my writing process. My goal is 75,000 words. It’s going to be fun! I look forward to hearing how your project is going.

  2. Sounds like you have a busy time of things ahead 🙂
    For myself I’m taking it easier and just using the camp to pour out some ideas and whatever else is floating around in my head.
    Best of luck to you for your novel writing 🙂

    • Oh yeah, very busy!
      That’s a good idea. It’s sounds like you’ll be able to get yourself organized. Good luck. 🙂

  3. As ready as I’ll ever be. I’ll be working on two things at once for Camp so… time to be anti-social for a while haha. Hope you manage to read through your novel!

  4. Good luck with the reading! Even I’m planning to revive a novel I’d started a good three years ago, which is only about 10k. I don’t have an outline for it though. In yhe next three days I have to complete the planning stage so that I can concentrate on just the writing during Camp in July.

  5. Hey there! I recently saw your post and I just wanted to tell you that I’m too participating in NaNoWriMo this July for the first time! Excited!
    All the very best and I’ll see you around!
    *Goes to plan the story because ONLY 2 DAYS LEFT*

  6. I’m not even remotely ready, but I’ve been cabin-ed and profiled, and I’m supposed to be doing the first 30k of a new Science Fiction Project. I’m mostly a pantser, so that’s plenty of planning… right?

  7. I am writing poetry at 10,000 word goal count, but I don’t have anything planned yet. I have been meaning to brainstorm a list of topics for poems, but so far I haven’t gotten around to it.

  8. Short answer: no. Slightly longer answer: Kinda? Long answer: I could be if I did the same as you and read over what I’ve written in the past…

  9. I am in the same boat as you, time crept up on me and now there is not long left. I also need to read through what I have, however mine is only 20k, along with look at the previous outlines I made and probably make some changes. I don’t know when I am going to have the time, I might just have to do the first few days then plan once I have more time.

    • I thought it wouldn’t take me that long, but I was wrong. I may be pulling an all-nighter before Camp actually starts, lol.
      Good luck!

  10. I’, sort of with you in spirit. I am not officially doing NaNo but I do need to get significant chunk of my manuscript re-written and another chunk edited. 🙂
