Its that time of year again! Anyone else participating Camp NaNoWriMo next month? What exciting project will you be working on? This year will be a new and different challenge for me. Almost one year ago exactly, I finished the first draft of my first ever proper manuscript. I let it sit in my draw for 6 months, as suggested by a lot of writers, then took it out again to begin editing ... for the last 6 months now I have been unable to edit/focus on it either due to work (I started a new job last November which took a while to get settled into and which is now currently going through massive changes so is a bit of struggle at the moment) or from writers block and a lack of motivation when I do have spare time. I realised I needed to look at my novel more closely and, after several weeks of hard thinking, I've decided that the current genre of the story might not be the best one for it. Therefore, this Camp, my goal to rework/rewrite my entire manuscript into its new genre. After making this decision, I already feel more motivated, more refreshed, less restrained, and more confident with this story. I am hoping that this change in genre will also help me reach my secondary goal of boosting my draft's current word count of 39,000 words to its more ideal word count (based on generally accepted manuscript word counts for genres etc.) of 60,000 words. I might be setting up my own cabin again but have not fully decided as of yet. If you would be interested in joining in with my cabin let me know and, if I do end set one up, I'll let you know and add you to it Good luck everyone!
