Camp NaNoWriMo? Don't Mind if I Do!

First off, HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY to all of my readers also in the States. I think this is my favorite holiday. At least my second favorite.
Have a cupcake on me :)
But it's also Monday, so on to some writerly thing :)

Have you guys seen this Camp NaNo thing? It's basically the November version, but in July and without its own forums and such. At least so far. But it is a nice option for people that are insanely busy in November.

I managed to do and win NaNo in November (Do NOT ask me how. It was insane), but I had such plans for writing over the summer.

Thus far I have written approximately 0 words.
ugh.

So I decided to do Camp NaNo as a way to kickstart myself back into writing.

I'm working with the novel I started in November, but the thing needs a complete rewrite. As in I can't use anything really that I wrote before. So I figured why not take the accountability of NaNo and that word counter to give myself the motivation to get started. I love this story and I'm starting to get itchy because I can't get going on it.

How about you? Done any writing or revising this summer? Planning on joining Camp NaNo? What do you do to motivate yourself when you just don't want to write?

I've signed up for Camp NaNo, but I'm not sure what I'm doing yet. I'll probably be writing in August...
