Well, that’s it for Camp NaNoWriMo this year! The pandemic has made both the April and July Camp NaNo’s strange ones. It put me in a position where I was spending even more time indoors than I did before, but somehow, it was more difficult to motivate myself than usual. Anyone else feeling that?
While I didn’t “win” Camp NaNo this month, I always come out of the month feeling a little bit changed. It’s as though I see the world more clearly, or at least I’m a little bit more attuned to it. Just like when I read a book, it feels like I’ve experienced things that I didn’t do in real life.
So what’s next for me? I’m going to try to get back to and maintain some sort of daily writing schedule. I think it’s the most important thing I can do for my writing this year. As for this blog, I’m taking the next couple months off as usual, but I will be back in October for some NaNoWriMo prep posts (who knows, maybe I won’t be a pantser next time!). And I’ll of course be doing lots of fun daily posting in November.
Until then, let’s keep writing, daydreaming, and slowly making the world a better place…
Final Camp NaNoWriMo haiku:
The writers emerge - Ink's run out, one month passed by - World still beautiful.
