Welcome to another month of A Year of 30-Day Challenges! It is Month 8 and we’re going to edit a book!
In case you want to get caught up, here are the past challenges.
Copy a Chapter of Scripture a Day
The BE SEEN Challenge
Less Scrolling, More Reading
Write a Novel: NaNoWriMo
Learn a New Craft
Tackle a Neglected Task
Last month I focused on the words I used. In the Speak Life Challenge, I challenged myself to always use words of affirmation when speaking with others and to not use my words to tear them down
I would say that the SPEAK LIFE Challenge was a success. While I was not perfect, I was definitely more aware of my words. There were times when I didn’t exactly speak life to or about some people. That’s not good but I was quickly aware of where I failed and that is a big win. Awareness of my actions is a big step. Overall, I am happy with the steps I took and will continue this challenge from now on. Ultimately, the goal is for this to not be a challenge and to be a natural way of living.
Let’s move on to this month’s challenge.
April is Camp NaNoWriMo and I am attending!!!
Camp NaNoWriMo is the “virtual camp” version of the November NaNoWriMo. It is a retreat that is more relaxed and allows for the most flexibility. You can take on a new writing project just like NaNoWriMo, expand on a previous project, or start editing and revising.
I am choosing the last option and will start the first round of editing the novel I wrote in November during the WRITE A NOVEL Challenge. It is about time, I’d say. When I finished writing for NaNoWriMo at the end of November I planned to take December off to let the manuscript marinate a bit and then start editing in January. Then everything turned upside down and all around and I haven’t opened that first draft since I filed it away in November. I got an email from NaNoWriMo talking about Camp NaNoWriMo and thought that this would be the perfect time to start editing.
I doubt I will actually finish editing and revising this month because I plan to take it nice and slow and focused. The only way to finish is to actually start and that is what this month’s challenge is all about.
WISH ME LUCK!!!
