April 2015 Camp NaNoWriMo Prompts for Week 3

by syaffolee

Okay, I admit it, I’ve been doing word sprints a lot this week. Mostly because the majority of the other sprint leaders haven’t signed up for sprint sessions and I was feeling guilty about leaving other wrimos in the lurch. On the surface, it looks like an impossible amount of work, but all I can say is–things will work out if you plan ahead of time and are able to multitask.

So, here are the prompts I used for week 3. Feel free to take them for your own use.
