Summer Camp 2020
For me, Summer Camp 2020 is a chance for me to not only expand my worlds, but also to challenge myself. On top of the 300 word minimum, I'm trying to make sure that all of the articles I write for SC are more than 600 words long, because if I can get into the habit of writing 600+ words a day now (on top of work and social commitments), then once SC is over I can start properly writing content towards the choose your own adventure story that I'm working on.
The personal word count goal is also helping me to flesh out each article a little bit more. I know they're all works in progress, but the more I fill out now, the easier it will be for me to come back and finish them off later.
I'm also aiming to complete all 33 prompts - although those diamond prompts are definitely going to be challenging! One that I'm looking forward to tackling.
