ROW80 Round 3: Goals and Camp NaNo (am I crazy?)

Okay, here goes...Round 3! And I've really taken the plunge, into the lake.  Yes, that's the lake at Camp NaNoWriMo.  I have a feeling I may look like this by the time it's over!

So, my goals....

  • I'm starting late on NaNo, so my daily word count will have to be around 1850 if I want to finish by the 31st.  Of course, I know there may be days that I will have to double up, but I'm aiming for at least 1800 words per day.  (Initially, I'm going to research in the mornings and write at night, but my research is not too extensive so will probably only last the first week or so).
  • daily journaling through The One-Minute Writer (I'm not giving this up now).
  • Devin O'Branagan's Flash Fiction contest for July...a 1000 words or less story--due by July 15.
The story I entered in Devin's contest last month did not win.  I came in third place, but I did say I would share the story here on the blog.  If you would like to read it, go HERE.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote and if you voted for my story, an extra special thanks to you. =O)

Good luck with whatever you endeavor to accomplish this month!
