Tomorrow is the start of July (wha?!?!), which means it’s the start of another Camp NaNo
session. I’ve signed up again, since I’m always super productive during NaNo, but this time I’m revising a novel rather then writing a new draft. Camp NaNo allows for flexible goals both in terms of word count and what you work on, although I’m not exactly sure how to track revision progress since it involves adding, deleting, changing and lots of jumping around. But regardless of how I track it, I’m looking forward to digging into this novel and pounding it into a more presentable shape.
