Here‘s my #BFC2022 March accomplishments & April goals. I exceeded my reading goal, except that I only read library books, nothing from my own shelves! I‘ll do better in April. I‘m tweaking my fitness goal because although I walked twice a week, I didn‘t bike at all. New goal: walk 2x/wk & exercise 2x/wk. April is a #CampNanowrimo month so I‘m aiming at editing 20k words.

wanderinglynn Great goals! 🙌🏻 6mo

I can‘t believe #Nanowrimo is almost here! Just a reminder to #CampNanowrimo “cabin” members @RainydayReading @CharityAnn @Llwheeler @GingerAntics @ValkyrieandherBooks @WanderingLynn @Ubookquitous @AsYouWish @RedWritingHood @CoCoReads @BlitheBuoyant @jb72 if you‘re doing Nanowrimo, the #LitsyCampers writing group on the Nano site is still open! It‘s been quiet for a few months but I‘ll be posting there more frequently as November approaches. ⬇️

blithebuoyant Wooooooot can‘t wait! I‘ve got it on my calendar ❤️ 2y
TheBookStacker What is this? I‘m interested though I‘ve never heard of it 2y
TK-421 To all other #WrimosofLitsy: there are still 5 spaces available in the writing group so if you‘re writing this November & would like to connect with fellow Littens writers for encouragement, support & conversation during Nano you‘re welcome to join us! Please comment if you‘re interested & I‘ll send you an invite! 2y

ValkyrieAndHerBooks I am! And my Pantser self is trying out Planning for a change, with Perptober! (edited) 2y
GingerAntics Did they add cabins for November, too? I must know how this works!!! I am so excited. I need to go in and set up my project still. 2y
dylanisreading I'm interested! 2y
julesG I want to write. I know it helps me clear my mind. I'd love a support group. Although I have no idea what to write at the moment (pantser). 2y
GingerAntics @TheBookStacker National Novel Writing Month (better known as NaNoWriMo) is November, and there is an official website where you declare your project and track your progress. An official win is 50K words (unless they‘ve allowed for different goals this year - they were talking about it), but you can write about anything and getting anything written in this middle of this madness seems like a win to me!!! 2y
TK-421 @TheBookStacker National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) takes place every November. It‘s a fun challenge where writers from all over the world attempt to write 50,000 words in 30 days. I‘ve been successful at reaching the 50k goal 4 times so far. 2020 will be my 6th attempt. There are also 2 #CampNanowrimo events every year in April & July where you can choose your own word count goal & type of project (like poetry, short stories, novel revision) 2y
Charityann I‘m in for this year! 😊👩🏻‍💻 2y
TK-421 @Charityann Yay! 😁 2y
TK-421 @ValkyrieAndHerBooks Yay! 😃 How‘s Preptober going? 2y
TK-421 @GingerAntics With the new website they have writing groups year round instead of just having cabins for Camp! You were part of the Litsy Campers group during Camp so it should show up on your Nano profile under “My Groups”. (edited) 2y
TK-421 @Bianca Yay! I‘ll need your Nano name so I can invite you to the group 2y
TK-421 @julesG Lol I haven‘t decided yet what I‘ll be writing either! I can send you an invite to the group - I just need your Nano name 2y
julesG It's JulesGDSide 2y
TK-421 @julesG Invite sent! 😊 2y
julesG Thanks! Have joined. 😃 2y
RainyDayReading It‘s funny, I just logged onto the Nano site today to start doing some planning and get the writing wheels turning 😁 Excited to char with you all in the group again! 2y
GingerAntics SWEET!!! I‘ll go in tomorrow and get everything squared away!!! 2y
GingerAntics Looks like I‘m going to have to create a region for my new area. The nearest one is about 200 miles away. (edited) 2y
ValkyrieAndHerBooks @TK-421 I have my major plot points mapped out and some character/world building underway, but I‘m not sure a detailed outline is in the cards for me! 2y
wanderinglynn Yay! I have a new idea that I‘ve been holding onto for November. 2y
CocoReads I‘ll be getting on today! My last few nano and camp nano events have been less than stellar but I‘ve been excited about writing again this week so hopefully off to a good start as November approaches! 2y
AsYouWish Yes, I am in!!! I am trying to decide if I want to continue one of my started projects or work on one of my new ideas. I have lots of ideas for stories, and I am great at starting them, not so great at finishing them, lol!!! 2y
jb72 I‘m in too! I am really looking forward to writing this year. 2y
dylanisreading NaNo name is biancairl 2y

Not reading-related but still technically book-related... Despite cutting my #CampNanowrimo goal in half, I have a long way to go. But for the first time in a while, I‘m feeling hopeful. I didn‘t have to work today so I actually sat down & wrote. If I can stay motivated, I can still do this!

wanderinglynn You can do it! 🙌🏻🎉 2y
julesG You can do this! 2y

I‘ve got some catching up to do... Was out of town so took a few days off from #Quotsy & #CampNanowrimo & life in general. Now Minerva‘s making sure we don‘t go anywhere anytime soon by making my bag her new favourite spot! #CatsofLitsy

Anybody doing #campnanowrimo this July? I have to confess-I‘m still on the fence even 10 days into July. Work is insane and when I get home I‘m really too tired to domuch more than read a chapter, eat, shower and fall into bed. But I had a spare 10 minutes tonight on shift and managed to scratch out a few words. Not sure where it‘s going though or if I‘ll continue.

Clare-Dragonfly I am—but I‘m editing. 2y
CocoReads @Clare-Dragonfly I intended to edit during April and didn‘t get that done either. I rarely get a chance to sit down at work so when the words came, I just went with it! 2y

I haven‘t had a chance till now to post about my #CampNanowrimo win. I also want to say THANK YOU to all the Littens who were part of the #LitsyCampers cabin! Congratulations to all of you for participating in April‘s Camp 😊 It was great hanging out & sharing our triumphs & woes, and supporting each other with encouragement & advice!

TK-421 @AsYouWish @cocoreads @jb72 @Ubookquitous @wanderinglynn @RainyDayReading @Valkyrieandherbooks @BlitheBuoyant @Redwritinghood @Charityann @GingerAntics
be sure to check out the cabin board for info about the new #LitsyWriters group on Discord started by @Llwheeler so we can continue to support each other!
Mitch Yeah🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳 2y
GingerAntics This entire month got away from me. I don‘t think I wrote anything. Whoops. Congratulations on your win, though. 2y

jb72 Congratulations on your accomplishments! I did not get to post much, but I was able to write two poems. 2y
wanderinglynn Congratsn 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻🎉🥳🥳🥳 2y
mhillis Kudos!! 2y
CocoReads Congrats! I wound up doing absolutely nothing. This pandemic has seriously messed me up but I‘m willing to try again in July. 2y
AsYouWish Congrats!!! It was such a fun month!!! Already planning for July!!! 2y
Charityann Congrats! I was able to reach my goal as well. 😊🎉 2y
jmofo Hoooray!!! Well done! 🧐🎉 2y
TK-421 @Charityann Thanks! And congratulations to you too! 🎉😃 2y
TK-421 @jb72 Thanks! Congrats to you too! 2y
TK-421 @CocoReads Thank you! It‘s been a difficult month with everything that‘s been going on. I hope July works out better for you! 2y
TK-421 @GingerAntics Thanks! April was a bizarre blurry limbo of a month so don‘t feel bad! Do you think you‘ll do Camp in July? 2y
TK-421 @AsYouWish Woohoo! I‘m looking forward to July too 😊 2y
GingerAntics @TK-421 Yes. We‘re moving in about 11 days, so that certainly didn‘t make for a good month for writing any way. By July we should be settled in, so it should be a great month to do some writing. 2y
GingerAntics Dumb question, what is discord? I would gladly have an ongoing writing conversation, cheerleading section. I‘ve been wanting that for a while. Is it like Slack, where the Litsy chat is? (edited) 2y
CocoReads I don‘t know discord either but it would be nice to have ongoing convos. 2y
GingerAntics @CocoReads I know there is an official Litsy slack that‘s we can make our own individual groups in. That‘s a messaging app for phones, tablets, and computers. I‘ve never heard of discord, but then I‘d never heard of slack until someone started group chat in there. 🤷🏼‍♀️ It seems most people don‘t know about Litsy on slack. (edited) 2y
TK-421 @GingerAntics I hadn‘t heard of Slack till recently either—so I didn‘t know there was a Litsy chat there— from what I understand, Discord is similar. 2y
CocoReads I had trouble working slack when I was on it. But I‘m not super techie and lack the time and patience for most of it. But I‘ll check into it. 2y
UglyOldBat Congrats! Great job 🥳 2y
Redwritinghood God job! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 2y
ValkyrieAndHerBooks Congrats on finishing! 2y
TK-421 @ValkyrieAndHerBooks Thank you! And thanks for being part of the Litsy Campers cabin 😊 If you‘re interested in the new group on Discord, the invite link is posted in the Camp group‘s feed 2y
ValkyrieAndHerBooks @TK-421 awesome! I‘ll definitely check that out! 2y
CrowCAH Will you be hosting a cabin for July? I‘ll be participating next month. 2y
TK-421 @CrowCAH Yes, I‘m planning on doing Camp Nano in July 😊 I just sent you an invite to the Litsy Campers group I started in April. I haven‘t been checking in there lately but as July approaches I‘m sure things will pick up. There‘s also a Litsy Writers group on Discord if you‘re interested! 2y
CrowCAH @TK-421 great, thanks! I‘ll login to my account. 2y
CrowCAH @TK-421 accepted! This was my first time on the new NaNo site; wowzers! I created my Camo NaNo project and was dinking around on the site, updating my information. 2y

I finished one book I started in March, and completed three others, two of which were audiobooks (one of which was a reread). A bit in a slump. The three books I'm reading I've been reading forever now. I'm determined to finish at least one next month, but I'm also going to finish the first draft of the story I worked on all this month.
