Camp NaNo – July 2019

I’ve known for a while what I was going to be working on for Camp NaNo in July.

And yes, the information will be on my Camp NaNo project page if it isn’t already.

So what will I be working on?

I’ll be aiming to finish writing poems for the poetry book I’ve been working on.

And maybe I’ll eventually have a cover for it too.. We’ll see. I still need to settle down on what title I want to use for the story. We’ll see…

In November and a little after that I went kind of crazy with making covers for stories I had already written and it was easy and a nice break from the crazy that was writing or editing, whatever I was doing that day (after finishing NaNo I may have gone back to some edits for another project. I can’t fully remember as I’ve slept since then…) and since I can do that from my phone it’s super easy.

By the end of July I’m going to have (at least) 227 poems that will be for the book. I’ve been trying to have as many details for the book sorted out as I can so when it comes down to crunch time I’m all set.

My original plan was to have 93 poems to write for July (3 a day), but at the rate I’ve been going some days I might not even have that many to write. If you think I’m slacking I’d love to see you write a poem a day for a week or two and then come back and see how “easy” it was. Even though I’ve been writing poetry for… Oof… 15+ years there are some days that I go to write poetry and just… Can’t.

There are also days I’ve sat to write and without thinking about it I’ve cranked out 10+ poems. So who knows how Camp is going to go. I’ve been keeping a good track of how many I’ve written, so I know what I’ve got and I’ve got all sorts of stats and spreadsheets of sorts and just… Math has seriously been involved in this process.

If you would have told me back in high school that math would be my friend one day I would have probably looked at you like you were crazy and then thought about it and gone “yeah, math will be involved”. But I didn’t think enjoying math to this level would be in my life.

Happy Camping, folks!
