Finish the Damn Novel(s) | My July Camp NaNoWriMo 2023 Goal!


Long time, no blog! If we went off my posts alone, we apparently blinked our way from 2021 into mid-2023. In some ways, that feels close enough to the truth.

But there’s no time to dwell, each word is important now! It’s officially Camp NaNoWriMo and my goal is set to a whopping 35,000 words.

(I haven’t won a Camp since April of 2020, so this feels doable……………but then, so did all the others, lol.)

I’m revising Project Death (draft 5!) and drafting A Closet Full of Cauldrons. Any number of words in either project counts, but I’m aiming for 5,000 a week in the former and 2,500 in the latter.

This Camp is basically phase one of my summer writing plans for these 2 projects, as I’m hoping to reach The End for both around the first week of September.

So far I’m 36% complete on the Editing phase. 8 Weeks remain until the deadline. It LOOMS.

Project Death
Due:4 weeks ago

I did make and post a Day 1 vlog:

And I’m hoping that the rest of the month will look about the same! Just enjoying my celebratory NaNoWriMo puzzle, taking some trips to the library, and making steady progress.

If you’re participating in Camp NaNoWriMo after a long record of L’s, let me know what you’re doing to change that! Or if you are just all about having fun, regardless of winning or losing. (Perhaps the perfect Camp mentality!) And please let me know what you think the perfect Camp snack is, both for around a campfire and for around your computer.

Thanks y’all, hopefully my next post won’t take two years, and happy writing!
