Welcome back everyone! Today I thought I would talk about how Camp NaNoWriMo is going for me and also talk a little about the different projects I am working on.
I haven’t Participated in the NaNoWriMo that takes place in november and I am not really sure why. But I did give Camp NaNoWriMo a try last year. I aimed to hit the typical NaNo goal of 50,000 words. I only managed about 12,000 words because I just couldn’t zero in fully on one project idea.
This year my main focus has been just one idea. Its an Idea I really liked the concept of and built a world around. Now, its been a week since Camp NaNo started and I admittedly started 3 days late. Even with excuses I only sit at 3000 words. I have already run into “problems”. So, I have spent time working things out and drawing a town map just to help me navigate.
My goal this year is still set at 50,000 words. Other than needing to build pieces for myself to keep the story moving forwards, I am still finding it hard to put words down. Mostly because I hate putting down sentences that I don’t. A problem I know a lot of writers have. How to I push past the need to be perfect in my first draft??
Along with My camp project, There are 2 other projects I am working on/ want to get done by the end of the year.
The first of the 2 is a short story that goes with my camp project. It’s just a story I will be righting to figure out my magic system and flesh out my world further.
The last project is one that I will hopefully be posting to this site be for the year is done. It goes with the short story I posted last year. It’s called Lord Odious and it originated from this short story. It is written I just need to edit it and polish it up. I believe it is much longer and a much better story but you can be the judge.
So, Make sure to be on the look out for the short story and if you haven’t already read Lord Odious feel free to read and let me know what you think by clicking here.
Thanks for reading ! Let me know how you Camp NaNoWriMo is going!
