Well, I actually went and added another 1700 words to my 20k goal for this month's Camp National Novel Writing Month. Probably could've added more, but I faffed around the weekend just gone. Our washing machine died. Announced its end of life by piddling all over the laundry, but we've battled worse. It was 11 years … Continue reading End of Month Wrap Up
And with hitting the 20k mark, that's my goal complete for this month's Camp National Novel Writing Month. I don't know where the sudden burst came from. Everything was going fine, I was up to 650-700 words a day, then BAM! 2k pours out like nobody's business, followed by another 1k the next day. Next thing I … Continue reading #Campnanowrimo – Goal Complete
So, at the beginning of this month's Camp National Novel Writing Month, I committed to a minimum of 15k. I hit that mark today and also finished another chapter some days back. For now, things are going smoothly (even if the kitchen is still a wreck), so I'm aiming for my usual 20k a month and … Continue reading #Campnanowrimo – 15,000 words reached
The second week of Camp National Novel Writing Month is often the hardest for me, doubly so when my dear partner gives me his cold. Regardless, I've jumped over the 10k mark. By tomorrow, I'll have reached an overall total of 100k! I've yet to finish another chapter in To Target the Heart, mostly because I'm jumping … Continue reading #Campnanowrimo – The Halfway Point
It seems I have survived the first week of Camp National Novel Writing Month with a healthy 4779 words. In terms of passage through To Target the Heart, I've managed to complete one chapter... partially because I also moved another scene into a whole other chapter. It hasn't been quite as trying as I'd feared, especially with … Continue reading #Campnanowrimo – The First Week
During the previous Camp National Novel Writing Month, I added almost 21k to To Target the Heart. I had planned to add another 20k to it during this month's Camp Nanowrimo. With the upset of last month, I am 7k behind where I'd hoped to be, but I am simultaneously in a better position what with … Continue reading Let the #campnanowrimo begin!
Here we are, at the end of April. I've been mostly keeping above my daily goals since the halfway mark, which is amazing given that I'm writing at night after wrangling a sick daughter (who, naturally, lovingly spread it around). But I made it. Overshot 20k on the 29th to be exact. I'm currently perched … Continue reading And I completed #campnanowrimo!
So we're halfway through April. Last time I participated in a Camp Nanowrimo, I struggled a bit to meet my goals, which weren't as large as my current 20k, but I was also writing near the end of the story. I'm on chapter five at the moment (Tavern brawl!) and it's still only been two … Continue reading #campnanowrimo The Halfway Point
In 2016, I participated in both of the Camp National Novel Writing Months as well as the main Nanowrimo to help me plough through the remainder of In Pain and Blood. I took last year off to focus on editing as well as writing An Unexpected Gift and Dark One's Bride (the latter of which then got … Continue reading #campnanowrimo Begin!
It was January of last year when In Pain and Blood reared its head. I'd 27k down by the time NaNoWriMo 2015 rocked up. I entered, naively believing that it would perhaps have another few thousand words afterward. That maybe it would reach the heights of 100k. Yet here I am, with a story that's 50,000 more words … Continue reading #NaNoWriMo The Ending
