But first, I need to go into the Camp NaNoWriMo website and set some writing goals for myself. I probably should have done this already but NBD to wait until now; Camp NaNoWriMo is definitely more relaxed. Unlike NaNoWriMo, I can set whatever goal I want, and despite my project likely being a book, I'm probably not going to set a 50,000 word goal. Some of the writing is already done, and a big part of the process will be synthesizing, pulling in new information, and coming up with examples and problems. I may instead set a page goal or number of topics to cover. I'll think about that today while I get my hair done.
BTW, today is not only the first day of July - it's also a significant date for other reasons. One of the blogs I follow, Dena's Ramblings, shares the significance of the date, both generally and in legal and military history. Today is not only Canada Day (150 years!), it's also:
- International Joke Day
- International Reggae Day
- National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day
- National Postal Worker Day
- National Zip Code Day
- National Hop a Park Day
Edit: My friend over at The Daily Parker also had a few words in honor of Canada today.
