Going to Camp

I’m lCamp-2017-Participant-Profile-Photoooking forward to participating in Camp NaNoWriMo for the first time this year. They’ve added hours or pages as goal markers as well as the usual word count.

I’ve chosen 75 hours in the month of April to work on editing the second book inย  The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone series. You can find the first book HERE. Can’t wait to retreat to the NaNo woods and refine the 2nd book for release in October 2017!

Left brain, right brain, I can't decide. After many years of successful visual arts pursuits, I'm working on my other creative inclinations. For the past 8 years, writing has been my second full time job, and it's worth every sleepless night. Sheri J. Kennedy grew up mostly a city-girl coasthopping from Seattle to rural Pennsylvania, Miami and back to Seattle. She currently resides on the banks of the Snoqualmie River in the scenic Cascade Mountains. Her heart has found its home.

  1. Have fun at Nano, Sheri. I did it once in Nov. and it’s great motivation to get a big chunk of writing done. It’s a lot, though, and I ended up so wrung out, I got the flu. Take good care of yourself, put all other responsibilities on hold, and indulge!

    • I’ve done, and won, regular NaNo 10 times, so I’ve kind of got it down by now…lol. It works great for me to focus on my full first draft all at once. I do just about 75 hours of editing a month already…At least 50-60 most months, so it shouldn’t be too hard, in theory. It will help me keep my butt in the chair when I don’t want to do it anymore. ๐Ÿ™‚ Mostly, I have several friends who really wanted me to join their cabin, so I decided to give Camp NaNo a try.

    • Yeah, I guess that was misleading. Tips…don’t try to do all the other stuff you normally do. Truly make writing your full priority for that month. Also, don’t do like I did some years and lead and/or attend a NaNo event every day…very fun…bad idea. I was so exhausted. But if I get off work and then put 2-3 hours of writing time as routine each day, NaNo seems pretty easy. And DON’T edit. Really. Don’t do that in November. ๐Ÿ™‚
