I can’t believe that it is April already. Where did the time go? Even more unbelievable is that fact that I only have six more days of classes and then I am done (well, after classes are finals…but I’m done after that).
Nevertheless, April promises to be a busy month. While I’m wrapping up school and final exams, I thought it would be a wonderful idea to take on Camp NaNoWriMo. It’s basically like NaNoWriMo (if you don’t know what that is, then shame on you) but a lot less intense, I guess one could say.
You basically get to choose your goal, so I decided to aim for 30,000 words this month (which is 1,000 words a day…so not too bad). Only thing is, I know I’m going to have a lot of days where I won’t be able to write a whole lot because I’ll be studying for exams.
We’ll see how this goes, though.
I never even thought of doing it, until a friend asked me if I was going to. I think it’s a good idea to kind of kick-start my writing for the summer, and also get me excited about writing Black Ice again – a novel I stopped working on about two months ago, and have been itching to get back to the last week or so.
And, in other news, if you were aware the deadline for the draw for a free paperback copy of Perspective – my first published novel – was yesterday. Basically, if you liked me on Facebook, you were entered to win. Anyways, when I did the draw, the first name I pulled out was my mother’s. Now, it’s not that I don’t want her to have one – she already got her own FREE, signed copy months ago – it’s just that I felt someone else should get the book. I guess I should have thought about taking family members out of the draw – all of them already have a signed copy as it is.
It was almost like my own draw was playing an April Fool’s Day joke on myself, so I had to draw again. Needless to say, first was the worst but second proved to be the best. One signed copy of Perspective found a happy little home today. Well, it’s still at my house, but it is to be mailed out tomorrow to said winner and forever gone from my life – but that’s okay, I’ve got at least half a dozen more lying around here somewhere.
So, congratulations to Nenorta. I hope you enjoy your book! 🙂 (Although, I already told her this when I got in contact with her through Facebook for her mailing info…and I’m pretty sure she doesn’t read my blog…so those two, short sentences – and all this other rambling that follows – is pretty much a waste of your time).
I love having the power to waste people’s time…
Anyways, that’s about as exciting as my day got, today (not that you care anyway)!
So, is there anyone else out there who is doing Camp NaNo this month?
Thanks for reading!
