So I have failed the last three NaNoWriMo’s and just in case you fail to catch my abbreviations?
NaNoWriMo is the National Novel Writing Month that takes place every November. The challenge is to write a 50k word novel in thirty days. I have never been able to do it! I get about 5k words in and peeter out.
Well since I am in the middle of revising my current novel, I have all kinds of ideas for other stories, particualarly children’s books.
This led me to decide to give CAMP NaNoWriMo a go! It’s a July “summer camp” version of the challenge in November.
I’ve chosen to write a children’s book ROSIE & PICKLES THE TIME TRAVELING HORSE.
Nine year old Rosie loves horses, in fact, she’s horse crazy. Her backyard looks out onto a big horse ranch and she watches from afar and dreams of how it would feel to gallop through the field or soar over a jump. But here is the problem, Rosie’s mom is scared to death of horses and refuses to let Rosie take lessons.
Everything changes when one day Rosie meets Pickles who tells her he has been sent to give her an opportunity to set things right because she has an important destiny ahead of her.
They travel back through time an Rosie comes face to face with someone she would have never expected. Will she have the courage to do what needs to be done?
Camp begins tomorrow! Wish me luck!
