Oh man, guys, it’s that time of year again! I’m going to be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo in the month of April and I’m pretty pumped about it!
If you don’t know what Camp NaNoWriMo is, it’s a more relaxed version of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in which the goal for NaNoWriMo is to write 50,000 words in one month. NaNoWriMo takes place every year in the month of November, but Camp NaNoWriMo takes place in both April and June of each year. The only thing is is that the goal for Camp is set from 10,000 to 999,999 words. So you have a much broader range in which to write!

I didn’t participate in last year’s NaNoWriMo (well, I started to, but didn’t get far), and soo with this upcoming Camp NaNoWriMo I decided that instead of working on the same project I worked on last year, I’m going to start a whole new one! Yup, I’m that ambitious.
What’s my new project going to be about? I wrote out the synopsis the other day and I’m actually pretty pumped about this one:
Nara is a thief of the Rising City, and she’s been one since she was a little girl, trained and abandoned by her father. Now, as a twenty year old, she is one of the most infamous thieves in all of the Rising City. But when one mistake almost costs her her life, she is thrown into a life debt by someone she never would have thought she’d ally herself with: a Magician.
Mikail is a Magician, a rare breed that is seldom seen in the world anymore, and he is still honing his skills. When his powers manifested at a young age, he didn’t expect to be in the eye of every powerful person in the Rising City – especially that of the Queen. But when one day his magic goes haywire and he saves a thief from most certain death, he thinks that maybe she is his ticket to freedom.
Though the two cross and their lives mix, neither one could be prepared for what happens to them – or their hearts.
I’m pretty excited about this one because I’m picturing more of a steampunk kind of setting, but we’ll see if I stick with that! My characters will take me wherever they want to go and that may not be the direction they want.
So with this new story I hope to write every day, at least something per day. I have a goal of 20,000 words set for the month, but if I write more than that’s awesome! If not, well, that’s okay, too.
My average words per day in order to reach my goal is 667 words. Very easily doable, honestly (considering some of my reviews are over 1,000 words, I’m pretty sure I can easily do this per day, haha!).

I’ll be posting weekly writing updates and wrap-ups, so be sure to check back to see my progress and how my writing’s going. And in those wrap-ups I’ll also talk about writing advice and tips and such for any of those who may need a bit of help or inspiration.
If you’re participating this year, please let me know! I’d love to hear your ideas and talk about writing with you. If you’re not participating, then let me know if this is something you’d be interested in in the summer months. Maybe I’ll even join you and participate then, too!
