3rd Step of Camp NaNo Prep

Updated: May 22, 2022

"If you fail to plan, you plan to fail" - that quote has been attributed to Benjamin Franklin, but I couldn't confirm that. No matter who said it, it is a fairly solid, and I believe, mostly true statement. Especially when it comes to writing your first book.

If you haven't put a plan in place, in other words, schedule your writing times, then you are less likely to get any writing done because let's face it - Life's gonna life. In other words, distractions abound! Excuses will fall from the sky like life-giving rain. And no, a plan won't magically make those distractions or excuses go away but it will reduce their ability to stop you from getting your word count done for the week.

So Step 3 is this: Schedule Your Writing Sessions for the month! Grab a calendar for April (paper, digital...doesn't matter, just have a calendar you can write on or edit), and let's determine when and how many words you need to write during Camp.
