Random: I failed Camp NaNoWriMo

Hi guys!

So, I’m feeling the need to talk about Camp National Novel Writing Month. And how I failed it.

If you don’t know what Camp NaNoWriMo is, it’s basically the same as National Novel Writing Month.

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. 

On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.

I actually participated (and succeeded) in NaNowriMo last November, and managed to write 50, 000 words!

But this time, I had a lot more to do, and as Camp NaNoWriMo let’s you decide a goal, I only went for 15k.

And I didn’t even manage half of it. You see, I started off well. I actually managed to stay on track until around the 10th day, thanks to @nanowordsprints.

But then I lost it. I missed a day, and thought ‘I’ll catch up tomorrow’ and then it just carried on and carried on. And I never caught up in the end.

I just lost inspiration and started getting word blocks. And I never managed to find it again.

I am hoping to carry on writing the story sometime though! And get that goal, in the end.

And before I go…why am I writing this now? Well, here’s another reason I never finished. I’m going on a cruise tomorrow for practically the rest of April. And I have a feeling I won’t find the time to finish my novel anyway.

Did you participate? How are you doing? And out of interest, how do you get over writers block?

-Beth

May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
