Going camping

“Camping” by FlopHouser

You might ask yourself a few things. Why did the Pope truly step down from his office? Is there life on Mars? Is Canada really such a nice place to live? What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? Sadly, I can’t provide you with answers to these questions. However, I can answer that one question you have been asking yourself since a few days: what the heck is that weird logo on the right doing there, stealing space from the most popular posts? Well folks, that logo indicates that I’ll be camping in April, literally. Well, wait, not literally in the sense that I will be outdoors getting myself bitten by insects, but literally in the sense of writing. Would that be literary rather than literally? Questions, questions, questions…

Anyway, as the logo indicates, I will be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo coming April (and probably also in July), which means that I’ll be writing a short story of at least 20.000 words in that month. It’s not much, considering I survived NaNoWriMo 2012 which had me writing more than twice that amount in the same time. The difference with that contest from November is that now I have a blog to vent my writing frustrations, so prepare for an author’s rage next month.

Luckily, my housemates will join me in the writing madness, so I’m looking forward to a month filled with write-ins, writer blocks and really strange plot twists, all crammed into a small house in the Netherlands. We might not be camping outdoors, but if you bring us some tents and fire wood, we can turn our kitchen into a nice, literal (or literary?) campsite!

  1. Correction: please do NOT bring fire wood, unless it`s plastic and lights up with LED lights. The house will just burn down otherwise, and we`ll end up literally camping. Under a bridge.

    Food supplies however are very much appreciated 😉
