Ten with gun

Camp idea!

I figured out what to do with Camp Nanowrimo!

As I noted before, I haven't been writing and I haven't finished anything, including my story for dw_guestfest, and I was getting apprehensive about Camp Nanowrimo starting in two days, since I wanted to work on a specific novel idea but I have stories that I need to finish first. I came up with a great idea for this on the drive to work today.

Instead of setting a CN goal of finishing a particular story, I'm setting a goal of 20,000 words. It doesn't matter what those words are applied to; I just need to write them. This way, I can work on any WIP I have, or a new idea, or that novel I want to write, and maybe, just maybe, I'll finish the story for dw_guestfest in the first few days.

This will take a little bit of organization, as I need to record how many words each of my WIPs have at the beginning of the month, and then take word counts every day, but I think this will be better for my scattered state of mind this year.
