July is our busy month we celebrate three birthday’s in the family and my uncle usually appears in our neck of the woods for the celebrations. July is also Camp NaNoWriMo and you better believe I will take part! One of the nice parts about Camp Nano is that you don’t have to set a 50k goal, it can be anything you want. I’ll be reaching for that 50k goal but have learned over the last two years that it’s more about quality than quantity. I may get all the words in but sometimes rereading what I wrote gives me a headache. My sweet husband likes to tell me that’s a good thing because it shows you’re improving in your craft.
If I break my goal down into manageable pieces, it’s easier for me to feel like it’s attainable. So, all I have to do is write 1,613 words every single day. Sounds challenging? No, it means that my computer will come with me wherever I go and I’ll use my spare moments wisely. Time management- something I stink at but am desperately trying to improve.
What are your writing goals for July?
