First Camp NaNoWriMo of the year kicks off on April 1st…

2014CampNanoParticipant…and i’m nowhere to be found.

It’s been a hectic end of March, and I’ve been working hard to finish up some projects and clear my table for the NEXT big project – getting a film made this year.

Life can be complicated.  But, as I remind other writers constantly, if you want to be an AUTHOR you have to WRITE.  You have to write every day without fail.  Even if it’s only a few thousand words, you have to write.  Your passion for putting pixel to screen or ink to paper has to consume you completely.

For years I have entered NaNoWriMo.  Not because I publish everything I write (which I do – mostly because I’m getting paid to write), but because it makes me set aside time – in the middle of screenwriting, book formatting, empire building or whatever I’m doing that day – to sit down and write.  So far, I’ve hit every single 50,000 word-per-month goal.

If you’re a writer – and you’re serious about the craft, then I recommend you check out NaNoWriMo and it’s offspring Camp NaNoWriMo.  You can never have too many attainable goals!
