How I Changed my Mind


Do you like writing? Every year I compete in Camp NaNoWriMo, a challenge where you write a novel in one month.

I wasn't actually going to do Camp NaNo this year. I didn't have any novel ideas and I have a lot of other projects I'm working on at the moment.

But then, the day before Camp NaNo began, I had an idea for a plot. I was excited. The plot felt like it would be so much fun to write. I just knew I had to compete in Camp NaNo after all.

The next day, I started my novel. I didn't know any of the important detail like the main character's name or what was going to happen. That didn't bother me, though.

I'll work out what's happening in the middle of the story when I get there, I told myself, unconcernedly.

We're now almost twos weeks into Camp NaNo. I'm still very excited about the plot of my novel. It's one of the most fun novels I've ever written. I rather like the characters and how the story is developing. I can see myself wanting to come back and edit this story in the future.

I hope that the next two weeks of writing will be just as fun as the first two were. I also hope that I discover the middle of my plot soon. But that's not important!

But what about you? Do you like writing? Have you ever done Camp NaNo before? Are you doing it this time? How is your novel going? Please tell me in a comment!
