Home on the Range
I’m going to camp! Eating hotdogs and canned beans, toasting stale marshmallows, singing inane campfire songs, swatting away gnats and mosquitoes, fighting for your potato chips from an army of ants, mandatory sharing of obligatory “scary” stories…….. Sounds like fun... NOT! I hate camp.
What I’m doing instead though, is going to Camp NaNoWriMo where I can stay in the comfort of my cozy warm house, drinking obscene amounts of highly caffeinated coffee, typing my fingers down to little nubbies, while in my favorite tie-dye flannel jammies and purple fuzzy slippers, in a completely bug-free environment. Now THAT sounds like fun! And what’s so great about it is, that this time around we all have a choice of word count, genre, and even the option of writing a script! This kind of camp makes sense to me.
So, I’m off as of April 1st and will return promptly just before midnight on April 30th if not sooner. I’m ready to go -- My bags are packed, or, shall I say, my shelves are stocked. I’ll see ya when it’s over! Have fun all you other campers!
