2 hours till the start of Camp NaNoWriMo July 2014 (I won’t start until tomorrow evening though) and I’m getting kind of nervous. And excited. But mostly nervous. Doubting myself and wondering if taking part in this in July is just another way to procrastinate on other stuff?
But then I also think, that being creative and (hopefully) learning to let go of the expectation that I have to do everything right or perfect might help me in other aspects of my life. I think the high expectations is on of the things holding me back a lot of times. The underlying fear of not being good enough to do something the perfect way or even the right way or whatever. This fear that in most cases leads to me not even trying to do these things. Which is stupid, I know. So, let’s hope Camp NaNoWriMo will be different.
My targeted word count is 30.000, which is about the same I managed to write during my first “official” NaNo attempt in November 2012. I should be able to do that again. I hope. Wish me luck…
