I’m happy to announce that I did manage to catch up on my word count. Thanks to careful planning and calculations on my part, I have been able to reach my word count for the day without sacrificing any other activities.
There’s been a lot going on lately. My sister and I agreed not to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo for our collaboration story. Unfortunately, there were too many things that we needed to work on and it just wasn’t the right time to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo together. Luckily for me, I had been writing my own story so I’ll continue to write that one on my own.
With the collaboration story, my sister and I still intend to write the story. That hasn’t changed. We just won’t be on a deadline per say to write it. It’s a bit disappointing but it couldn’t be helped. For next time, I’ll be fully prepared for a collaboration story if it presents itself.
A few other things going on is that I have also been working on other stories as well. Now, these aren’t other side projects for Camp NaNoWriMo. No, I’m not capable of doing something like that. Writing 50,000 words for one novel is tough enough. I’m not doing that for two. What I meant is that I’m writing weekly chapters for one of my stories on wattpad. It’s called The Vampire Prince goes to High School.
Yes, I know how it sounds. To be truthful, I don’t even like this story. It would be no issue for me if I stopped writing it. However, there are too many fans that like this story and so that is why I continue to write. I do it for the fans. They deserve closure and I’m going to give it them.
The other side project I mention is the rewrite of Crimson Queen. It’s another story that I wrote on wattpad and it’s been completed. I have been rewriting the entire story and adding more depth and side stories. The first draft was just plot and it needs to be beefed up a bit more.
These side projects keep my creative juices from drying out. Writing one story, motivates me to write another. It might explain why I am exhausted by now but I won’t stop. I will reach my goal.
Lastly, another one of my game reviews has been posted. It’s called Shapeless. You can read it here. It’s a game where you match shapes to create a different shape. The tricky part is that you have to shift the entire board to match the shapes. It took me a while to get used to this. I like it because it passes the time.
