So, I gave up on the “writing it all down in a notebook” idea that I wanted to do at first. I always end up pulling out my notebook, opening to the last page I wrote on, and just staring at the semi-blank page. I then go to Pinterest.
I moved everything I’ve written so far and now have a more concrete word count. 10,305. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. I’d written, I think, about 2,800 words in my notebook that I hadn’t moved to my laptop yet. When I got everything transferred, I just kept typing and ended up at around 3,300 total. That’s for 17 of my 54 scenes, so I’m about 1/3 of the way done.
I’ve also been hearing endlessly about July being Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m not completely sold on participating (which means I probably will). I haven’t logged onto the Camp site in a while, so I should probably do that first, before deciding to or not. Either way, my plan is to be finished with the first draft of my story by November, that way I can work on one of my other stories for the big NaNoWriMo event then. It will also give me a little time off from this first story. I don’t want to get burned out on it.
Tell me what you think! Should I the Camp and knock a few thousand words or go it alone?
See y’all next time!
