Camp NaNoWriMo is over. This was my first year participating in the Camp, though I did do NaNoWriMo in November 2013. I managed to knock out 90,000 words that year and ended up with a manuscript — I kid you not! — called Glencara’s Bane, which is still sitting here waiting to be edited!

Christina over at The Rolling Writer (who is an utterly awesome writer with three books under her belt — The Desolate Empire series — and another one nearly ready to go) gave me a nudge in the direction of camp. Gotta admit it was kind of a fun experience. I got to be in a “cabin” with 12 other campers (including buddies Christina and Colleen). They were all lovely people and dedicated writers.

Since it was my first time and didn’t know quite what to expect, I played it safe and set my goal at 7500 words. I finished camp at 10,004, all from the Seeker journey.


I really encourage anyone who likes to write to participate in these two events. It’s amazing, sometimes, what a little structure can do! And thanks, Christina, for the invite. I want to do it again next year!!!
