Well, I didn't end up participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this July, as you might have noticed. I just had too much still going on, between taking care of my horse, figuring out what to do with my websites, and adjusting to a schedule that is getting busier now that I have a little more free time (read: time that's not spent at the barn).
My life is gradually getting back to normal, though, if I even know what normal is like after just over four months now of my horse being sick. I'm picking up more client work again, and taking on other projects. And I'm thinking about NaNoWriMo, which is coming up fast, as it starts in only a few months. We're already getting ML emails from Headquarters to get us started thinking about November. I opted to still be a municipal liaison this year, despite everything that's going on, as I think Panama is doing really well and will hopefully be back to "normal" (read: requiring less work from me) by November.
Still, I want to make sure I plan well enough in advance for NaNoWriMo that if he takes a turn for the worse, NaNo will essentially run itself. My co-MLs and I are already starting to talk about November, although we're not planning out much yet, just talking about it. Once the forums get wiped in October, it'll be easier to start planning in earnest, but it's good to get it on our radar now!
In 2020, the first year of the pandemic, we felt like participation was a little down due to the virtual format, but a lot of our regular participants were hanging in there. Last year was rougher, with participation way down for the virtual events. I'm hoping we can encourage more participation this year!
What about you? Are you planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this fall?
