Introducing: My April 2016 Camp Nanowrimo Project

Tuesday, March 15, 2016



Like a lot of readers, I love to write stories as well as read them. Even before I learned how to spell, I loved to come up with my own stories.

Because of my love of story telling, it was no wonder that I fell in love with an event called National Novel Writing Month.

National Novel Writing Month is a non-profit organization that encourages people of all ages from all over the world to sit down and finally write that novel!

This November will be ten years that I've participated in Nanowrimo and will be my twenty-first Nanowrimo event.

While Nanowrimo's big event happens in November, they also host two sessions during April and July. These events are called: Camp Nanowrimo! I'm already preparing my notes and outlines to participate in April and I am so excited!

During the months of April, July, and November I will post Nanowrimo information and updates on my writings as well as continue with bookish related posts.

If you haven't heard of Nanowrimo I highly recommend you check it out and join in!


My 2016 April Camp Nanowrimo Project:


Working Title: Hello, Sunshine

Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Friendship

POV: 1rst person

Rough Summary: 

Summer has finally come and it’s time for Kimmy to leave college and head home for summer break, but going home means having to face her family and friends. It means having to tell them that the boy she thought she was going to spend the rest of her life with, dropped her like a sack of potatoes several months ago.

So she decides to hide away for the summer by applying to be a Camp Counselor at a small sleep away camp nestled in the valley of the blue ridge mountains of Virginia. All she has to do is forget about her problems and focus on the kids. Simple right?

Well it would have been simple had she not inadvertently made an enemy the first day she arrived at camp, and it would have been simple had she not caught the eye of her co-camp counselor, an adorable computer nerd named Adam.

The last thing in the world she wants is to even think about opening herself up to another person, especially after the last guy took all of her trust and crushed it up into a million tiny pieces. But as summer strolls along Kimmy is finding that some people may be worth that terrible, awful risk called love.

January and February Wrap Up 2016





2016 has started out pretty well for me! One of my goals this year is to spend more time reading and writing and I feel like I've already made a good start to that goal. I'm hoping to be able to pick up speed and have time to read even more books each month. 

So I thought I'd share with you all, the books I've read in January and February!
