After 4 weeks of writing and constantly recurring writer's block, I have finished the month of July with 42,279 words, which was lower that I had expected but still over my goal of 40,000 words. I changed the goal from 46,500 to 40,000 relatively early on in the month but I knew I wouldn’t have much chance to write this month with my dad renovating the house and getting settled into my new life in a new village.
But thankfully I’m almost finished with my novel.
Those 40,000 odd words for July had boosted my total word count to over 100,000 and I only have about another 20,000 words left to write.
They however will be saved for the next few months leading up to NaNoWriMo in November, where I will then decide whether to start on the second book of the Ashford Legacy or edit this book until it is more
My cabin mates this time around were very active and very helpful. I’ve made several new friends and strengthened several old friendships too. They word warred with me and boosted my moral when I got struck by writers block through weeks 2 and 3.
So basically that’s it. I just wanted to say that now that July is over I’m gonna be posting on here quite a bit more now and also that I’m planning to blog on a weekly basis.
Yeah, that’s probably not going to last. But hey, I won Camp NaNo I’m entitled to make claims to accomplish ridiculous goals.
See you all round soon. xD
Day 13 has finally arrived and not soon enough, I can tell you. I've finally crossed over the 20,000 word line and am ready for a break....Not quite! Gottcha!
After April's success with their Marathon day on the 13th I decided, having not participated myself, that I would host and participate in the Unofficial July Writer's Marathon.
That's right, after a whole week of writing it's finally here. Not only will many people from all over the world be partaking in this marathon but there will be a group word war trial going on where friends and rivals can challenge each other to word wars as part of a team.
I hope all goes well and all have a ton of fun doing this. To anyone not yet participating in his event, check out the link below and get writing. The Marathon starts at 00:00 your time, and lasts for 24 hours. Well, what are you waiting for? Get going, and get writing!
So after three days of writing no stop I finally feel like an overachiever by reaching 10,000 words more than three days in advance.
I just can't seem to stop writing. I feel this time around that camp is going to be fun. Also after getting a head start to the month I don't feel too pressured to write when I'm away this weekend to always worry about missing a day.
This month, I am going to be fine. My cabin mates are tremendously helpful and supportive. I couldn't have asked for better friends to help me on this month long noveling adventure. Thanks you guys, and to any other camper wrimo's out there who read this:
"Don't give up! Watching those word counts rise day by day is so encouraging to
everyone! Keep going! We're all behind you!"
