I haven’t been feeling particularly motivated or productive lately, not to mention the general anxiety that’s been present almost constantly due to the pandemic.

But I made a decision to edit this year, so that I can work on my craft and I promised myself that I would participate in April Camp NaNo so that I had some timeline and could give myself smaller goals that I could hopefully meet.

My goals this month are small, (or depending how you look at it – realistic) and they are more based on consistency than anything else.

I’ve posted my CampNaNo tracker to Instagram, and I proudly colored two of my boxes so far. Because my goal this month is to keep a writing/editing streak going every day, even if it’s just 300 words.

While I registered my goal on the NaNoWriMo website, I don’t think I’ll be updating my project there. I’m not gonna lie, I hate the redesigned website with a passion. It’s not user friendly, there are glitches abound and basically I chose not to add to my stress levels.

So I’m keeping Camp NaNo to myself, my writing buddy and whoever on twitter wants to engage with me during this time.

I do wonder how my avoidance of the NaNo website will impact my participation and effectiveness of the challenge, but I guess we shall see.

For now things are going well enough. But wish me luck!
