I got an email near the beginning of April to inform me of a writing camp coming up in April and July. Yes, you guessed it—I signed up! It’s called Camp Nanowrimo in case you’re interested and need motivation and encouragement to write a few lines!
Those who know me will remember that I have been writing a book for quite a while now. This writing camp put me in touch with other aspiring authors. My “cabin mates” have been great, but I was so busy that I didn’t even start writing again until about a week ago. My current word count is up to 9,632 words! I’m almost halfway to my personal goal! Every word I write is a victory for me. My book, White Skin, Mexican Heart, details my family’s experiences in Mexico. If you’re really interested in getting a sneak peek at it, you can find it here:
The best part about writing is that I can do it after work, and I can wear my jammies while I do it. 🙂
