Camp NaNoWriMo

Yesterday was my birthday. It was a big-ish one, not a 0 birthday, only a 5. But it was big enough to make me think about just what I’ve accomplished in my life. I know that I am really lucky, but there are a few goals that I really haven’t worked towards at all. Writing a novel is pretty high up on the list, and now it is about damn time I do it.

Enter Camp NaNoWriMo. Conveniently enough, the email for Camp NaNoWriMo arrived in my inbox yesterday, smack in the middle of my somewhat pathetic navel gazing and birthday-related whinging. (I believe I said that I would no longer be celebrating birthdays. I still want presents though. 😉 ) So, I’ve made the commitment to write my damn novel this August.

If you’d like to show you support me finally trying to accomplish a lifelong goal, why not donate to the Office of Letters and Light, the people behind NaNoWriMo and other literacy and writing programs. They are a U.S. non-profit, so any donation made by Americans will be tax deductible. (Sorry, Canadians. You just have to be happy doing a good deed. And I’ll get a cool pen if I get $50 in donations.)

What’s my novel about? Well, I’m not totally sure yet (which is why I’m not doing Camp NaNoWriMo in June). It will probably be sci-fi of some sort, and maybe have something to do with multiple dimensions. All I can guarantee is that I will work my arse off and that it will be awful. 😉 How can you not want to support that?

    Hi! I’m creating a blog post featuring Camp NaNoWriMo participants who are blogging while they camp. Would it be okay if I include your blog? ~Raine
