Writing: To Camp or Not to Camp

I have been writing every day most days for the past two weeks. It has felt wonderful and it makes me kind of want to push for a “50,000 words in 30 days” sort of month in June. I’m afraid to try as well because I will be returning to my daytime job from maternity leave and I have no idea what that is going to be like.

So I am debating. Do I want to hold myself to something which without a new baby to juggle I’ve found challenging or not. I do like challenges, but I don’t like failing them (who does!).

I could set a lesser challenge (that is part of the benefit of “Camp” NaNoWriMo). I could aim for 30,000 words (1,000 words a day). I could set an entirely alternative writing goal (write 16 chapters over the month).

Decisions, decisions….

Writer, nerd, and perpetual student. I am obsessed with books - both the reading and the making of them. If I won the lottery I would try to have the best private(ish) library in the world. It wouldn't be totally private because the whole purpose of having books is helping other people find a book they will love. I have 2 cats, Genkii (energy) and Kawaii (cutie). I will mention them regularly because they are a daily delight in my life. Granted, sometimes when I'm playing video games they are not so much "delight" as they are "distraction"... but I love them regardless.
