Camp NaNoWriMo

Quiet Evening

My hubby is putting our youngest to bed, and my daughter is on the couch munching on popcorn and watching Caillou. Our dogs are lying on the couch as the night slowly drifts on.

Early this morning, and I do mean early as my son decided to get up at 1AM not go back to sleep until about 4AM. I had some time to work on preparing my novel for Camp NaNo. I’m going through an old manuscript and tossing out most of it. I’ve labeled my chapters and now working on a document that gives me a summary of what I want each chapter to be about. It’s just so confusing taking snippets here and there that will still work in the book, but tossing the rest. So now it’s like putting a jigsaw puzzle together though many of the pieces haven’t been written yet.

I have so many ideas and they sometimes render me immobile. I’m sure I’m not the only writer to experience that. If it’s not writer’s block it’s having too many ideas at once.

So tonight, I am going to try and make some progress on the chapter summaries.

Where are you on your Camp NaNo prep? Or are you preparing? Are you going to be a pantser?

Camp NaNo starts in just 9 days! Are you ready?
