It’s become clear to both Rachel and me that without the NaNoWriMo sessions, we wouldn’t be writing too much.
Of course, we both enjoy writing and have a few novel drafts in the works, but after this past April’s Camp NaNoWriMo session, we both realized that we haven’t written anything original since. Even in regards to our writer’s group, with Rachel submitting parts of her Camp NaNo and me submitting pieces of an older work in progress that I tweak when needed. My Sunday Scribbles lately are stories that I tend to find hidden deep in my writing DropBox folder (on the other hand, it’s nice to be reminded of some older stories that I would love to get back to eventually).
July’s Camp session starts this Saturday and I have no idea what I’m going to do. With my latest NaNo projects, I’ve started with a novel idea that is usually the reoccurring theme in my NaNo, with shorter stories here and there to break up the monotony of just writing one story for me.
Writing is one of my favorite pastimes and needs, but I’ve been slacking in that department. I’m much more interested in writing blog posts and articles, for here, Double Jump, and perhaps a few other places. I suppose it’s a natural step after writing new genres and mediums and figuring out how and why you want to write.
