Just Write: Self-shaming Sunday Update

June Camp NaNoWriMo!

I’m not going to ramble on too much in this update.  I just posted one this past Wednesday – a few days later than usual – and not much has changed since then.  Well, that’s not exactly true.  Camp NaNoWriMo started on Friday and I’ve been busy working to keep up with the daily word count quota.  I’m pleased to say that I’ve kept up nicely, though I did have to skip my weekly “Things I learned this week” entry.  Those take a bit of time and consideration to compose and I thought it best to focus my energy on the task at hand.  For my followers who only stop by for those entries, I apologize.  I promise to have one up by next Friday providing that my brain hasn’t imploded by then.

Last week’s goal:  Finish up what I lagged on this week; begin the frenzy that is Camp Nanowrimo; have a very nice word count to show for my efforts.

Goal met?:  YES!  I have caught up and am navigating quickly through the scenes that deal with the explosion and the immediate aftermath, setting up what is come.  I am volleying through a handful of scenes, introducing key characters, and foreshadowing their roles.  Eventually these characters will come together, but for right now they are doing their own thing.

I have accumulated 5334 words since Friday.  Not too shabby.

Next week’s goal:  Continue moving through the scenes listed on the outline;  keep word count on par for the projected 50K by June 30.

  1. I have heard rumors of the camp, but been too busy to really figure out what it’s all about. I do the regular NaNo in November. Is camp fairly similar?

  2. Good for you! I’ve attempted regular NaNoWriMo but not the camp. It’s good to see someone moving right along with it. They say, “Break a leg” for theater. Would it be “break a finger” for writing? lol

  3. Excellent work! I think part of what I love about NaNo is the consistent daily goal, it forces you to keep working at it regularly and develop the habit.

  4. That’s awesome Peggy! 🙂 Way to go!

    To make the 50K goal it only takes 1,667 words a day. Not that much considering some chapters can range to 6 thousand words. 🙂

Leave me a comment. I'd love to hear what you think.
