April sees the start of Camp NaNoWriMo. I've taken part in NaNoWri Mo in November since 2011, but this is my first Camp. There's also a summer camp in July.

This WriMo you can set your own targets. You don't have to slog out 50k, but I'm going to give it my best. I want to finish the first draft of Thick Skinned.

I started writing it NaNo 2012, but for some reason it emerged from the mix of last years NaNo and I came away with two stories. Neither were completely finish, though I did pass the 50k marker.

You don't have to be in a camp with participants, but it makes the writing more fun if you are. I was randomly placed with some campers from America and Germany, both newbies and NaNo writers.

I'll probably update my progress at the end of the month.

All the best if you're doing Camp.


  1. Good luck! Hopefully we can have a local mini-camp in Nero. I wonder if they'd let us have a campfire around one of the tables?

  2. Interesting!! I've actually never heard of a WriMo camp. I hope you're doing well at this!! Best wishes for drafting THICK SKINNED (intriguing title, Debbie!)

  3. Gosh, I'm so behind on blogosphere! Your camp sounds awesome, Debbie. Good luck with your draft!

  4. Belated thanks. Catching up with blogs. Camp went okay, though I ended up decrease my work count to 30k. Glad I could do this.
