I also do Camp NaNoWriMo during the month. Two major Challenges in one month? Can be done, with some planning. I wrote my entries in February and March using my Scrivener, Aeon and Scapple programs. Not that I was paid to write that, it's just my life has gotten simpler using these and at the same time, more complicated because I happen to think that I can do so much more now that my tracking and writing has gotten simpler. As I scheduled the posts, I edited. Doing both well takes a bit of pre-planning.
One problem I had was finding follow links. I thought back to when I first started blogging. There were a couple that I didn’t even have an idea about doing until I had read a few of the blogs of the more experienced bloggers. Of all the sites I checked out, the NaNoWriMo and A to Z challenge sites were the most helpful, especially the Captain’s Ninjas. A few were helpful enough to send me an email. I may not have let them know I appreciated the help. Here is a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped me in some way.
However, I would like to point out that, I have and will continue to have my idea of who, what, where, when, and why I write and sometimes I fit in, sometimes, I edit, sometimes I revise. That’s all anyone can do, really. So, my take on the whole Challenge? Have fun, learn one or two things and move on.
