Camp NaNoWriMo and I Need Your Help!

Wordcount for July 17For the past two weeks I have been participating in an event called Camp NaNoWriMo. It is the relaxed, summer version of November’s NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Instead of NaNoWriMo’s goal of 50,000 words, with Camp NaNo’s flexible word count goal, I have chosen to write 25,000 words by July 31st at 11:59PM! For the first week, I did really well. As you can see in the graph there, I kept up with my daily word goal every day – sometimes even surpassing it. Now the words seem to be jammed up in my head and are unwilling to loosen up and spill out onto my computer screen. It has been rather frustrating.

I am hoping that now that I’m into week three the words will start flowing again, so that I can catch up! I have participated in NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo multiple times now and it seems that the end of week two is the most sluggish time of the whole month. Well, except for the times I have given up half way through the month…

I have not yet reached a NaNo goal, so I am hoping that this will be the month that I succeed. I just need to pick up the pace! Anyone who has inspiring words or words that will kick my butt into gear, please leave them in the comments section below. I need your help to get my fingers back to typing toward my goal!
