Going to Camp (NaNoWriMo) With Kindle Worlds

Talk about waiting until the last minute!

I signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo this morning, the first day of the monthly writing challenge. I hadn't really planned on participating this time around, as I've been busy with putting the finishing touches on my podcasting book and editing my next horror novel.

But, two things helped me change my mind., First off, a good friend of mine is doing Camp NaNo for the first time, and it's always fun to have someone else taking the challenge along with you. Second, I mentioned last week how excited I am about Kindle Worlds, so I figured Camp NaNo was a great excuse to write a short X-O Manowar story to submit to Amazon's new fan fiction platform.

So, here I am. My goal for the month is a modest 10,000 words, which is a little over 300 words a day. This should be manageable, even with everything else I've got going on for the month. I'll be posting updates here and talking about the challenge on a few episodes of See Brian Write.

If you're taking part in Camp NaNoWrimo, let me know what you're writing about in the comments. Good luck and have fun!
