I've done NaNo three years in a row but this is my first time participating in a camp. I'm hoping that spring jumpstarts my creativity in a way that November never could. The lack of a major holiday should help!
I've previously worked on a fantasy series that has recently begun to flounder--every draft I've written gets overhauled before it's complete, and thus I after six years of working on it, I have very little to show for it. (my brother does the art for it--I can show that!)
So this April I'm planning on writing something new that I will ACTUALLY FINISH. I will probably bump my personal goal up to 75k or something in order to force myself to reach the story's conclusion for once.
Am leaning towards YA Science Fiction, and I'm torn between creating a detailed outline or trying to pants it (for the first time ever) with only a vague idea of where I'm starting and where I'm going....I'll probably end up going for the outlining, just to feel safer.
I love chatting with writers (of all ages and genres), so hit me up if you'd like to talk!
