I Will Make Next Month Awesome April

I’m determined to finally get myself on track writing wise this April.Matthew-by-Millie-Ho


  1. Camp NaNoWriMo – I will complete a 60,000 word count and first draft for The Terrifying Life Of Henry Granger. 
  2. I will post an updated wordcount to the Writing and Works Facebook page everyday along with an extract! [Preferable one that doesn’t give too much away. Like two lines that make no sense without context. That should do it.]
  3. NaPoWriMo – I will complete a poem each day of the month. This seems much more doable than point one.
  4. Refer back to point two and adapt to suit point three instead of one.
  5. I will attempt to still get enough sleep to function as a working human being. [Meh. We’ll see how that one goes.]

    Good luck! You can totally do this. But….I’d make sure you have plenty of coffee and/or redbull 🙂

  2. Good luck! Is NaPoWriMo april? Was thinking about trying it this year. But then I struggle with a poem a week.

    • Go ahead. There are prompts you can follow if you like, or you can use others for inspiration. You don’t even need to write something that long of that good! Just a quick draft and you’re done. Challenge yourself!

  3. Good luck with your April Resolutions! I’ll be completing (or attempt to complete) some of my own as well.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
