NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It takes place in November. Camp NaNoWriMo is a summer version that began in 2011. These events take place online. A community of writers cheer each other on as they strive to reach their personal word counts.
I am ambitious ,so I set my goal as 50,000 words. I plan to write a few short stories. I then plan to revise my favorite and submit it for publication. Regardless of whether I succeed in publishing something or not, I will feel great completing my word count goal.
I enjoy writing. It’s a creative outlet that allows me to become a more effective communicator. Maybe I will never be published, but I have definitely utilized my skills on the job. Whether I am creating a work document or delivering a presentation, I know I am aided by all the time I spend plunking away on my keyboard.
During the camp in July, I’m going to be writing a series of mysteries whose protagonist is a socially awkward techie. When Ben Evens finds he no longer has a job, he quickly finds himself thrust into a new career as a amateur private detective. It doesn’t come naturally to him at first, but he has a keen eye for detail and limitless trivia knowledge from hours on Wikipedia.
