We’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!

He will not leave you nor forsake you. This one features Zeke’s two best friends—Jasper and Timothy.
Section 1.7 – God is with You
Two out of Three
During Sunday school, Milo told the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who were so brave, they were practically superheroes. Zeke’s stomach felt all tickly inside at the thought of someone asking him to stop being a Christian anymore. Daniel’s three friends decided they would believe in God, no matter what.
