August Camp NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow. I’m still not sure I’m ready, but I am going to attempt it. Why not try? The worst that can happen is you don’t write a novel, which is probably what will happen if you don’t attempt it (well, it probably won’t happen for a while, anyway). If it turns out I’m not ready for this project, no big deal. I’ll try again when I am, and I’ll likely have a better understanding of what went wrong, and I may even have a nice start to work from.
I finished reading the QueryShark (http://queryshark.blogspot.com) archives. I’ve drafted two different queries using the things I learned, now I’m going to sit on them for a while. Hopefully I’ll still like at least one of them in a week or so, and then I’m considering submitting to the Shark myself.
To all those participating in Camp NaNoWriMo, good luck and have fun!
