The Finish Line – Camp NaNoWriMo

Today is the last day for Camp NaNoWriMo. Unlike what I had planned to accomplish, I fell short of my goal. However, I did managed to arrive at my second goal once I figured out that 50k words wouldn’t possible this month. I’m actually proud of myself for that. Against all odds, I was able to sit down, write, and get further in the story (the sequel to the Vampire Princes goes to High School). Because of this, I’m have chapter written weeks in advance which gives me time to prepare and write more chapters. That’s a good feeling to have.

There are about 6 to 7 hours left of the event and I’m going to take that opportunity to keep writing. I doubt I will be able to increase my word count by much, and that’s not the goal, but I just want to write as much as I can during this event. There are more opportunities to write that are coming up so hopefully, I’ll be able to reach those goals.

In part, it had to do with the fact that starting a new job with a new scheduled made things a bit difficult to adjust. It didnt take too long but I believe that it did affect some part of writing. I also know that I’m also to blame so, it was a bit of both sides were the
“guilty” party so to speak. I’ll have to reflect on this month in general and proceed from there.

For those who are very close to hitting their goal, keep writing. There is plenty of time left. Don’t throw in the towel just yet. You’re almost there.
