Camp NaNoWriMo 2017

Camp-2017-Participant-Profile-PhotoWe’re mere days away from Camp NaNoWriMo, which takes place during the month of April. Camp is a little different than the full-scale NaNoWriMo event in November. You can set personalized goals: work for a certain number of hours per day, add lines to your script or poem, revise pages from last fall’s novel, etc.

My cohort and collaborator Elza and I have each chosen projects and set up a cabin. If you’ve been thinking of taking part—and are looking for cabin mates—comment to let us know your Camp user name and we’ll issue an invite!

Even if it meant they were going to die.

Zeke figured it must have been a little easier since there were three of them. It was easier to be brave when you weren’t alone. But maybe that was the whole point of the story of the fiery furnace. None of those guys had ever been alone. God was with them the whole time. Continue reading
