Getting ready for camp

I've been a bad blogger and I'm afraid that I can't promise to be better.

I'm gearing up for Camp Nano
 and I'm not going to make myself crazy like I did in April. ;))

Getting ready for camp is fun.
Besides deciding what story to write

You have to pack your clothes.
 
Lay in supplies for the month.
 
Coffee, coffee and more coffee
 
 
Fast snacks - relatively healthy

 
Protein powder makes for fast meals and no meal planning.

 
Don't worry I eat my vegetables too.
 
 
Well, it can't ALL be healthy. 
 
 
Did I mention lots of coffee?
 
 
Gotta pack the portable story making device.
 
 
The most important step.
Lock your internal editor out of the cabin/tent/house. 
 
 
Send him on a vacation.
Tie him up and stuff him under the bed.
Whatever it takes.
For one month just say NO to the internal editor
 
 
I saw this and wondered if this was a sign that I should change my story.
 
 
 
Naw,  probably not.
It can't be much of a zombie killa as it isn't dented.
Maybe they back over the zombies.  I didn't check the rear.
 
I will try to stop by once a week to peek in on you and let you know how it's going.

  1. Oh, really funny post, Jai! Love the supply list and locking out your internal editor. Have never done Camp Nano and probably never will, but I hear it works for some. Good luck and have fun!

  3. Good luck! Maybe I'll see you around the woods. I'll be the one walking around holding my Camp NaNo mug and weeping into it, either because my story stinks or because someone stole all the S'mores. :)
