Okay, this is kind of a spur of a moment thing (seriously spur of a moment thing as in signed up yesterday), but I decided participating in another NanoWriMo. I have decided that I need to get a fire placed beneath me so that I will finish writing some of my story ideas. Camp Nano isn't like the Nano in November. You can actually choose how many words you will be writing and I have chosen to be venturous (which will probably fail horribly with all the promotion I need to do for Shadow Embrace's release at the end of the month) and write 70k.
I think giving myself a deadline like this is a fantastic way to motivate me to complete those novels and get other manuscripts ready.
Do you write best with a deadline? Do deadlines work? Let me know if you're participating in Camp Nano.
