I just got this in the Camp Nano newletter. I thought it'd be an appropriate bit of cheerleading for those who've hit a plateau in terms of word count (like me).

Dear Writer,

I recently met a woman named Ruth who approached me with her head hung low. “I’m sorry, but I failed NaNoWriMo,” she plaintively said. “I only wrote 10,000 words.”

I hate to hear such words. They disturb me like few others.

“You didn’t only do anything,” I replied. “You bravely signed up to make creativity a priority for a month in a busy life. You dreamed up a fantastic novel idea. You wrote thousands of words. You established creative momentum in your life. That’s huge!”

And then I did the math. If Ruth writes 10,000 words per month, just 330 words per day, she’ll reach 120,000 words in a year—plenty for two novels. She didn’t fail; rather, she embarked on a creative quest. Sure, she’d hit an obstacle, but she just had to pick herself up and keep going. Overcoming obstacles takes practice, after all.

Tenshi Akui said it best in the Camp forums: “I've always felt the purpose of NaNoWriMo isn't really winning but the actual act of writing. After all, you are doing this for yourself and sometimes it's just the small achievements that mean the most.”


[snipped]

Let’s wake up tomorrow and set new goals for May. Let’s keep writing.

I made 25k words in my Nano goal before I plateau'd out. But every little bit is still a step forward.

Don't worry-- Camp NaNo is an unofficial [community profile] onedeadplotbunny activity. Participating is voluntary, but since so many community members do participate, related posting is accepted and encouraged. ^_^

If you're participating in April's Camp NaNo:

What is your username on Camp NaNo?

What is your wordcount goal?

What are you planning on working on?

Good luck!

Camp NaNo is in April and they're encouraging projects of shorter lengths, including short story collections~ If anyone wants to try to match on cabins, feel free to organize in the comments!

Since it's already April 1st in many parts of the world, here is a community-use Camp NaNo post.



Feel free to celebrate, complain, brainstorm, brain-drizzle, panic, etc. in the comments.

I see that Camp NaNo cabin assignments are coming up-- is anyone interested in a potential [community profile] onedeadplotbunny cabin? If so, leave your username in the comments and maybe we can get a cabin or two going!
