Day One

01 Apr

The first day started, and within four hours, I managed 3k and exhausted myself with writing in a style I never knew how to write before.  It was really satisfying, and I hope to write more before the day’s end– buffer is important, and I should write as much as I can while I’m still fresh in the race– but also, I need to remember to not overdo it and burn out.  So far so good!

    Camp NaNo?

      Camp NaNoWriMo. It’s the warmer-months version of National Novel Writing Month in November, where the goal is to write a book in a month– or 50k in 30 days. The Camp version has more flexibility than the November session, allowing users to set their own word goals, and the online community is very camp-themed, with ‘cabins’ of 11 people, the forums based on a campfire setting, and even pep-talks based on the idea that we’re all at an online summer camp.

      I hope that helped clear up what I’m talking about. =) Thanks for commenting!

        Ah ha. I thought as much, but had to go back a post to see what you we’d working on. Thank you for the explanation. How is it going so far?

        So far it’s going really well. I’m nearly to 15k out of 50k, and everything is coming along beautifully. I’m falling in love with my characters harder than ever before. They’re all adorable in their own messed up ways!

        Lovely. I do enjoy messed up characters, what greater chance for redemption–and who doesn’t love a redeeming story?

        Keep up the fantastic work! Sounds like you’ve captured a great writing stride.

        Thank you. =) I’ll continue doing my best, and once I’m done with this novel, I want to resume work on my first novel, The Sand Flea.

        Thanks. I actually have someone from my mother’s church who really wants a signed copy. Who am I to deny such a request? lol
