Well, I made the decision to not do Camp NaNoWriMo after all. I just can't commit to writing that many words per day right now. I have a blog event next week--I'm hosting a read-a thon--and I'm still looking for a job and I leave on vacation on August 3 so I have to get packed and ready for that. Have to pack for myself and for my two sons. Fun times ahead...I hate packing for trips. =O(
What I have going on now in terms of works-in-progress:
--My current idea had to be tweaked once again. I determined it was not going to work the way I had planned so I have to take the research in another direction.
--meanwhile, I came across another idea that I'm in the process of testing its feasibility. Not sure if I'll work on both or run with just one at first.
--I'm going to do research, but I'm also going to start writing and research as I go. I'm starting with a very small word count of 500 words per week.
--daily journaling (see today's entry below)
--I'm also going to work on one, maybe two, short stories for a couple of contests I'm going to enter.
One-Minute Writer prompt is: School--If you could have changed one thing about a school you attended, so that it became a better school, what would you have changed?
While I loved the school district that my elementary, middle, and high school were a part of, I really wish they would have had an orchestra program in addition to traditional band. I tried the clarinet in fifth grade, but didn't like it. I know I would have loved to learn and play the violin or cello. I think the school would have been all the better for having an orchestra.
