Every once in a while the urge to write hits me. I don’t mean writing blog entries, I mean writing stories. It is a dream of mine to be published someday, and sometimes the urge to just drop everything and write grabs me. I recently have had that urge, and instead of pushing it away like I have the last few times I have felt it, I have decided to embrace it ans start to write. I have signed up for NaNoWriMo camp (National Novel Writing Month). NaNoWriMo happens every November, but they also run smaller “camps” a few times throughout the year. The goal of these “camps” is to challenge yourself to write a novel in a month. There is an online community of writers doing the same thing, and everyone encourages one another to push on and to just write. There are no revisions, no deletions, and no starting over for this month. The goal is to get it all out not matter the quality. I am signed up for the April Camp session and am already having fun.

Why am I telling you this? Well, with every new adventure there is a sacrifice to make. Since I am going to be writing so much, I know that I will not have a ton of time to post blogs in the month of April. I am going to check in, hopefully once a week, with a small post but will be suspending all normal blogging activities until May. Honestly, I am having a bit of anxiety over this, but I know that this is something I will regret not doing.
See you all in May!
