Almost time for Camp NaNoWriMo's July session!

By Katharine Swan On Wednesday, June 26, 2013 At 10:10 AM

The July session of Camp NaNoWriMo is looming -- it begins on Monday.  Of course I'm already working on my novel, in fact I have been all along, but I'm looking forward as usual to that extra push that NaNo usually gives me.

I will be using July's NaNo to keep working on revisions.  I finished marking revisions last week in Durango, so in July I'll be going through and inputting the changes.  There is a lot more work than just making some grammatical changes, though, since I left notes everywhere to do things such as find period outfits for my characters, research various details, and write or rewrite entire scenes.

NaNo didn't give us the ability to do a page count this time, so -- since I have no choice but to work from pages -- I will be converting my number of pages into a rough word count by multiplying by 250.  I haven't yet decided what my goal will be for the month -- I could do 80k, which would mean finishing the novel in July, but I did the math and that would be about 10 pages a day.  That seems a little overzealous, so I might need to revise my goal downward a little bit.

What about you?  Anyone else out there doing Camp NaNo next month?
