The April Camp NaNo 2015 has been over for about a week and a half. I took time to catch my breath and coast a little before starting back writing anything. I have to say that my first experience participating in this virtual writing camp was a very positive one. I didn’t know what to expect from myself; what was reasonable or not and such as that. Setting goals is not generally an impossible thing for me to do, but in something as abstract as a writing project in which I set everything, I felt like I was just learning how to tread water in the deep end of the swimming pool.
The Camp NaNo staff were all helpful and sent encouraging emails each day. The web site is so user friendly that I had no problems setting up the project page for the part of the book I needed to work on. There was an option to be placed in a virtual cabin with other writers of the same genre, same near age, or no specifics. I chose both same near age, and same genre of Inspirational Historical Fiction.
I set my goal at 2500 words since I thought that would be enough to tell the part of the story that was missing. That goal was met, but I’m not finished with that part, so I will prayerfully finish this and then go back and edit the book again myself to make sure this flows and says what it should say. After that, I will submit the manuscript to an editor. My daughter has the cover design almost done for this one, and she did a great job on it. There are a few other loose ends that will fit into place in the right time. My family and friends have been such great support, and I appreciate you all very much.
There is a virtual Camp NaNo July 2015, and I am praying about participating in that one. God will have to tell me if He wants me to, and what He wants me to accomplish in that camp. I’m doing my best to keep my eyes on the goal I believe God set before me, and accomplish that which He has put into my path to do with my life. Thank you for your prayers for me, and I would ask that you continue those prayers. I look forward to staying in God’s will in this and in all things.
Have a very blessed day.
