I’m Taking Part in My First Camp NaNoWriMo

It’s nearly April, and that means it’s nearly time for the first Camp NaNoWriMo of 2021.

For those of you who don’t know, Camp NaNoWriMo is a global writing event that takes place in April and July. It’s like NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).

However, unlike NaNoWriMo, you don’t have to write a novel. You can work on short stories, poems, essays, or any other creative project. You can also write or edit your work during Camp. All you need to do is set yourself a goal.

Unlike NaNo, I’ve not taken part in Camp NaNoWriMo before. But this time, I decided to give it a go because I feel it’ll give me the motivation I need to get some serious writing done.

What’s my goal? I am going to write season one of my supernatural (or paranormal—I’m not sure about the genre) mystery serial, which will be approximately 30,000 words. This will be the first time I have written a serial, and I’m looking forward to getting started—I’ll explain why I’m writing a serial rather than my planned novels in a future post, so stay tuned.

To get me excited about my serial, I have created a mock cover for it; you can see it below. If you are taking part in Camp, I recommend creating and uploading a mock cover—it’s fun to do.

If you want to join Camp NaNo, all you have to do is go to the NaNoWriMo website, sign up and then set your Camp NaNo goal. My name on NaNo is NicoleJS, and I would love to share this experience with you. So, feel free to add me as a buddy.

Are you taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo? If you are, let me know what you’re working on in the comments below.

Stay safe and keep writing, folks!

Don’t forget, you can follow me on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Goodreads or like my Facebook page.

You can also join my Facebook groups: Setting Self-Doubt on Fire Squad, which is for writers; and The Nicole J. Simms Squad, which is for readers who enjoy my stories and want a sneak peek into what I’m working on before anyone else.

Also, I’ve also created a Nicole J Simms YouTube channel. On my channel, I will be sharing videos of my performances, trips, writing group adventures and my stories.

And, you can also download my e-books Merry Dreadmas and The Book of Drabbles for FREE, so check them out.
