It's almost time for Camp NaNoWriMo

It's almost time for Camp NaNoWriMol and I have no idea if I'm really ready to write 50k words for my mystery novel, "Not a Whisper." Here's my checklist:

  1. All blogs (3 of them) pre-written and scheduled through the end of August
     Done
  2. Basic novel outline written
     no
  3. Characters defined
     somewhat
  4. Have at least a beginning, middle and end
      no
  5. Mini-laptop set up for writing, writing and more writing
     Done  
  6. Family and friends apprised of what is going on
     Done  
  7. Lots of coffee, STRONG coffee on hand
      Done  
  8. Notebook and pencil ready for quickie notes
      Done  
  9. Located and corresponding with other Camp NaNo writer mates
      Done  
  10. Ready to BIC-HOK-TAM [butt in chair, hands on keyboard, typing away madly]
      ABSOLUTELY!

See you in a month - but I will try to drop in an update weekly, a short one.

  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one with no outline! I feel very unprepared, but it should be fun nonetheless! :)

  6. Good luck - I took the Challenge back last November and it has paid off for me. It's in the hands of the publisher now. Do you actually go off to camp? That would be such fun. Would be jealous except that I've got 3 projects on the go between now and mid November. All the best, Cam
