Repost for @Jess_Franzino :
Due to #NaNoWriMo, I ended up reading only 7 books in April. The BEST way for me to catch up on my readings is through readathons where I set a goal & have others doing the same thing. So, here‘s an “Unofficial Readathon” — I would love you to join in! Just use #maymakeup & tag me in a post with your goal to join! #readathon #litsyreadathon #unofficialreadathon

(Happened to see this in time 😀)

Jess_Franzino Thanks so much for posting this! 3mo

Sort of #BookMail... My #CampNanowrimo t-shirt (not shown) and pencil case full of stickers and supplies arrived today!

AsYouWish How is your experience going so far? I am loving writing and seeing my progress, but not sure how I feel about my cabin. 3mo
saresmoore So fun! They have great merch. 3mo
TK-421 @AsYouWish It‘s going well...I‘m more or less on track so far & happy to be sharing a cabin with 10 Littens! If you‘re not sure you want to stay in your current cabin, the #LitsyCampers cabin still has room 😊 Let me know your Camp Nano name if you leave the cabin you‘re in & I‘ll send you an invite to ours 3mo
TK-421 @saresmoore Yes they do! I‘ve amassed quite a collection of #Nanowrimo shirts, mugs, stickers, bookmarks, posters, pencils, & other fun stuff over the years. Some of it is stuff I bought but a lot is in reward for donating. 3mo

Looks like there isn‘t a Litsy #CampNanowrimo cabin for April‘s session yet @blithebuoyant @jmofo @wanderinglynn are you in? I‘ve never run a cabin but I‘m willing to if no one else is planning to.

If you‘re interested please comment with your Camp Nano name & I‘ll send you an invite (see comments for info) I‘m tagging people I think have done #NaNoWriMo or #CampNanowrimo. Please tag anyone who might be interested! #WritersofLitsy #LitsyWrimos

TK-421 Please note that you need to have a Camp Nano profile and must create your project on the Camp site to show up as an active writer. You also need to adjust your cabin settings. Select “I don‘t want to be included in a cabin” so that you aren‘t sorted automatically into some random cabin. Deselect “I don‘t want cabin invitations this session” so you can receive invitations.

If you need help: https://campnanowrimo.org/what-are-cabins
jdiehr I did do NaNoWriMo in November, but do not plan on participating in April as we are moving into our new house mid month. Good luck! And thanks for the tag 4mo

saresmoore Thanks so much for thinking of me! I hadn‘t planned on participating, but I certainly would do it for a Litsy cabin! 4mo
wanderinglynn Done! I‘m wanderinglynn on NaNo too. 4mo
Samplergal I would but my April is very busy this year. Is it really a huge commitment? 4mo
CrowCAH Thanks for the tag! I hadn‘t planned on participating, but this just might be the incentive to make some goal, even if it‘s not officially on Camp NaNo. 4mo
jb72 I totally forgot about Camp Nanowrimo in April. I‘ve updated my project. My name on there is jb72. 4mo
TK-421 @Samplergal Compared to November‘s Nanowrimo, Camp is very flexible. You set your own word count (or hours, pages, minutes, lines) goal & work on any project you want (novel, non-fic, poetry, revision, script, short stories, other). So yes, it‘s a commitment but you decide how much time & energy you‘re willing to put into it. I‘m often busy in April too so I usually set my goal on the low side & do revision rather than taking on a new project. 4mo
TK-421 @wanderinglynn Awesome! I‘ll send you an invite this evening! 😃 4mo
TK-421 @jdiehr No problem! Thanks for the encouragement & congratulations on the new home! 4mo
TK-421 @jb72 Cool! I‘ll send you an invite this evening! 4mo
LibrarianJen I‘m jenac83 on NaNo. I‘ll go adjust my cabin preferences now! I‘m so excited!!!! I set my goal low at only 30 hours for the month. (edited) 4mo
Reggie Thanks for the tag but November convinced me I am not a dedicated writer, lol, but good luck to the rest of you!!! 4mo
GingerAntics I‘m in. I‘m GingerAntics on NaNo. I need to set up my camp profile still. It‘s been a crazy couple of weeks at work, but I‘m excited to actually finish my NaNo project. lol 4mo
RiaWritten I super can‘t this year because of grad school eating my life but thanks for thinking of me! 😻 4mo
Merethebookgal Thanks for the tag! I‘m not participating this round, unfortunately. Have fun! 4mo
ValkyrieAndHerBooks Thanks for the tag! I‘m in! I‘m ValkyrieAndHerBooks there as well. 4mo
blithebuoyant I‘m down! 🥰 I‘m Kadiedawn on NaNo 4mo
Ubookquitous I participating - fairytalearchetype on CampNaNo - tag me (edited) 4mo
Ubookquitous Thnka 4mo
TK-421 @LibrarianJen Invite sent! 4mo
Ubookquitous Lol Thanks 4mo
Beachesnbooks Yes please add me!! I could use some encouragement from Littens. I‘m beachesnbooks on the site! 4mo
TK-421 @ValkyrieAndHerBooks @blithebuoyant @GingerAntics I wasn‘t able to find you when I tried to send an invitation. Have you created your projects yet on the Camp Nano site? (edited) 4mo
TK-421 @Beachesnbooks Cabin invitation sent! 4mo
ValkyrieAndHerBooks I created mine right before I replied to your post. I‘m not sure how long it takes for their system to update camper info. 4mo
TK-421 @saresmoore @CrowCAH I can send you an invite to the cabin if you let me know your Camp Nano handle 4mo
TK-421 @GingerAntics duh, sorry I just remembered you said you hadn‘t set up your Camp profile yet 4mo
TK-421 @Merethebookgal Thanks! Maybe next time! 4mo
blithebuoyant @TK-421 sec, phone battery is low I‘ll get back to you when I get where I‘m going 4mo
TK-421 @ValkyrieAndHerBooks I‘ll try again in a bit 4mo
CrowCAH @TK-421 I‘m also CrowCAH there. 4mo
TK-421 @RiaWritten No problem! 4mo
TK-421 @Reggie Thanks! Sorry to hear about your Nano experience. I hope you haven‘t let it keep you from writing! 4mo
julesG Thanks for the tag. I'm still undecided whether to do Camp NaNoWriMo. I have a few hours left to decide, don't I? 4mo
GingerAntics I guess I better do that today. March has seriously slipped away from me. I‘ll let you know as soon as I get my profile set up sometime after I get a little sleep. 4mo
TK-421 @julesG Yes, there‘s still time 😄 If you decide to go for it, let me know & I‘ll send you an invitation to the cabin 4mo
TK-421 @CrowCAH Your name isn‘t showing up when I try to invite you. Have you created a project yet for April? 4mo
RaimeyGallant I'm finishing a revision by April 7, and so I think I'll need to take a bit of a rest for some of April, but thanks for thinking of me! 4mo
mcipher I wasn‘t planning on it... but what the heck, I could use some motivation. Just signed up, please invite me to join you all!! I‘m mcipher there too. 😊 4mo
TK-421 @RaimeyGallant No problem! Enjoy your time off 😊 4mo
TK-421 @mcipher Yay! Invite sent! 4mo
MidnightBookGirl I think I'm in if there's still room! I'm Rigby9091 on there. 4mo
TK-421 @MidnightBookGirl Plenty of bunks still available! I can‘t see you yet when I try to send an invite. You‘ll have to create a project so I can invite you to join the cabin. 😊 Only writers with current projects show up as “active” or “eligible” for invitation. 4mo
saresmoore I just eked in under the final countdown and got my bare bones profile up! Would you be willing to send me an invite? My user is the same as here: saresmoore —I‘m so excited now! 4mo
TK-421 @saresmoore Invite sent! 4mo
GingerAntics Okay, I got in with just a few hours to go, but I am GingerAntics and I‘m signed up for camp. I‘m ready for the Litsy cabin. lol 4mo
TK-421 @GingerAntics Yay! I can see your profile & project but your name is not showing up when I try to send an invite. Can you check your cabin settings for me? “I don‘t want to be included in a cabin” needs to be selected so you aren‘t sorted automatically into some random cabin. “I don‘t want cabin invitations this session” needs to be deselected so you can receive invitations. Thanks! 4mo
GingerAntics Its selected now. 4mo
TK-421 @GingerAntics Invite sent! 4mo
GingerAntics YAAAAAAAY!!! 4mo
saresmoore Thank you! ♥️ 4mo
CrowCAH @TK-421 okay we should be all set now. Project set up and cabin settings adjusted. Name is CrowCAH. 4mo
TK-421 @CrowCAH Awesome! Invite sent 😊 4mo

Hey, Littens! Are any of you participating in #CampNanowrimo this April? I will be but I‘m not in a cabin yet. My goal is 35 hours / 35,000 words revision on book one draft “2.5”. #WrimosofLitsy #LittenWrimos #LitsyWriters #WritersofLitsy #CampNano #Revision

jmofo I‘m planning on it! Last year, @CocoReads had a Litsy Cabin, we can get another going this year. I have to log in again since I haven‘t been on since November. I‘m glad you posted about this! 4mo
wanderinglynn I‘ve been thinking about it. I wrote a novel during NaNo 2013, but have never gotten around to doing anything with it. I‘ve been planning to work on it some more. Maybe this would be a good time. 4mo
blithebuoyant Ooooooh thank you for reminding me! I‘ll check the hashtags and see if there‘s a Litsy cabin? I am brand new to #NaNoWriMo though. 4mo

CocoReads I‘m not going to be able to do it this time. I‘ve got my certification exam coming up at the end of April and I‘m not nearly ready for it. Good luck though and maybe I‘ll be able to do the one in July. 4mo
RainyDayReading I did last year, but it‘s not going to work out this time around. Keeping my fingers crossed that I‘ll be able to jump in this summer and finish my Nano from 2018 up. 4mo
TK-421 @CocoReads Good luck to you too! Hope you‘ll be able to participate in July 4mo
TK-421 @wanderinglynn Camp is great for doing revision! I‘m working on my 2014 Nano novel. 4mo
CocoReads @TK-421 I‘m planning on doing July. Probably just edits but I‘ll need something for stress relief after the next couple months. In addition to prepping for my exam, we‘re short handed and one of my co workers is taking June off because his wife is having knee surgery. Leaving us even thinner on staff. So I‘m pretty sure I‘m going to need July! I‘ll be cheering everyone on though! 4mo
TK-421 @jmofo @blithebuoyant 🙌 I don‘t know if anyone has started a Litsy cabin yet. I was thinking of posting about that to see if anybody is interested 4mo
blithebuoyant @TK-421 I couldn‘t find anyone who had. Definitely somebody tag me if someone starts a cabin! 4mo
TK-421 @CocoReads That‘s rough 🙁 Sounds like you‘ll definitely need a break! 4mo

To Be Honest | Maggie Ann Martin

Only book read in November because of #NaNoWriMo

To be honest I loved the premise of the story. An overweight daughter of a recently divorced mother who goes on an extreme weight loss show and then passive aggressively badgers her daughter about her weight while the daughter tries to stay body positive.

My only complaint was the mother and her daughters all had the same voice, or at least very similar. Not a total turn off though.
