Well, I'm not literally going off to summer camp. I am participating in Camp NaNoWriMo, though. This is the summer version to November's National Novel Writing Month. I wasn't going to do it this month. I've been in a bit (okay, a lot) of a funk in regard to writing, publishing, etc. I've just been feeling bad about it all after another round of no's for my novel that I've been shopping.
Then I saw something on Facebook today that gave me a much needed wakeup call. It basically said, "Never Give Up." I thought about the number of times I've suggested that other people not give up on their dreams and realized I'm not really practicing my own advice. So, after giving myself a mental smack down, I'm not giving up. I'm done being in a funk and I am back to writing. I've set my camp word goal at 30,000 words for July and happy to say that I have written 1,200 today.
I'm never giving up. I will continue forward, one word at a time.
