I’m ‘Away’ at Camp

Have you heard of CampNaNoWriMo? This April I will be taking part of the first time and I am really excited to dive in. I won NaNoWriMo back in November last year and I still don’t fully understand how I managed to write 50,000 words so quickly! [Read about my NaNo adventure here]


Here is what I have declared as my plan for Camp:

Back in November I had an idea. That idea grew, evolved and tangled itself into 50,000 words under the title ‘The Lion, the Witch and the New Kid.’

I’ve revisited the story a few times but still have yet to untangle the mess completely. During Camp I am planning on revising the story and coming out with a piece of fiction that is aimed at younger readers than previously (upper KS2) and a more straight forward adventure. I would expect this to be about 35000 words long.

The only ‘problem’ is that camp will eat into my reading and blogging time. If I am going to do it (and I really want to), I need to focus on my writing. I’m going to #YAShot2018 on April 14th which other than taking me away from my computer for a day, I’m sure will help my story progress.

So apologies for it going quiet here @MystoryNotes. You can follow me @PhiliBWriting to see how things are going throughout April. Expect some entertaining GIFs along the way!
