I’m not sure if I’m officially doing Camp this round. I haven’t been feeling the greatest health- and mood-wise so writing was a struggle all through June. I don’t want to put undue pressure on myself then feel guilty when I can’t handle it.
On the other hand, I wasn’t going to participate in April then ended up writing like ten chapters of Heaven Can’t Wait and nearly caught up with edits.
This month, I’d like to also work on finishing/editing some of the stories from April 2017 Camp. But I won’t restrict it to just those stories. There are also the stories from March 2017 when I did a different prompt every day and then all of the stuff I’ve started this year out of boredom. I know there are a bunch that I could pretty easily finish if I put my mind to it.
Anyway, if you are participating in Camp or just want some motivation for your writing, check out 4thewords.com. It’s a fun site where you battle monsters with your words to complete quests. Each monster (like the cute Wignow to the left) has a certain number of words to finish in a time limit (Wignows are 250 words in 30 minutes).
It’s a lot of fun, but it cost $4/month after the 30-day free trial. But right now is a great time to try it out because we have special events that coincide with NaNo events, and this month is another Untu hunt.
There’s a special zone, monsters that only appear during April and July, and lots of fun quests to get you writing. If you decide to check it out, use this referral code: WVBIY23608. That way we both get c-crystals if you eventually buy a month’s subscription. C-crystals are currency in the game and are used to pay for subscriptions and wardrobe items for your avatar.
Trust me, the site is worth it if you need that little extra to get you writing or something to keep you focused.
