By which I mean, of course, not an actual camp in the traditional, exciting, s'mores sense. No, I don't seem to be a fan of doing things the expected way. Mostly because I'm a fan of electricity, air conditioning, indoor plumbing, and bug-free sleeping environments.
What I mean is that I usually try to blog twice a week, plus Six Word Saturday. And I'm giving myself specific permission not to do that for the next 30ish days because I'll be camping. Not literally. I will be writing as part of Camp NaNoWriMo, which is a lot like regular NaNoWriMo (November) but with higher temperatures and more teens.
I'm going to be working on my novel for the next month and that's the only writing I want to focus on. If I'm inspired to write something else, yay. If not, yay. I've been a little frustrated with blogging lately anyways - I struggle to post but then when I do, there's little response (except for 6WS, which is the exception to just about every rule).
And, let's be honest, there are two main camps of bloggers: those who do it as a therapeutic exercise and those who do it for the comments. Sure, some of pitch tents in both camps from time to time but for me, I mostly blog to connect with people and lately, I'm not feeling it. Which is more me than you, I'm sure. Whatever, that's not the point. The point is that I've had a lot of editing work to do lately and I'm planning to spend my free time writing.
So, I'm off to figurative camp. I'll post sometimes. I'll post Saturdays. And then I'll probably post again more regularly in September. In the meantime, I'm very excited about the idea of having a very rough draft of my novel completed by September 1st.
Enjoy the end of summer, however you choose to spend it!
