April - Camp NaNoWriMo

I competed in April’s Camp NANOWRIMO. My goal was to get to 40k words in the latest book I’m working on. I was at 36k when I started the camp.  Yes, only 4,000 words. I think I signed up on April 15th. I was late in the game. So, yeah 4,000 words in about 10 days. Pat on the back! I’m proud of me. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I plan to do July’s Camp too. Crazy part is I will be out town for a full two weeks during the next camp. I will have my laptop with me but I will have to really find time to fit it in. I’m thinking of writing 20,000 words to a project I’ve already started. That’s 645 words per day. 😩 I’m still toying with it. We’ll see.

The Crofton Triangle & NaNoWriMo

I've gotten back to working the Crofton Triangle.  I'm allowing myself a break from Twisted before I get into the revision and editing process.  

I was also thinking about taking the month of November off to participate in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  But if I do that then I need to be figuring out my outline now.  I have some ideas of stories I'd like to do, but that would take away my focus on writing the Crofton Triangle and getting the revision/editing done of Twisted. 

Decisions. Something I'm going to have to think about, but I don't have a lot of time to do.  It may seem like it but Nov 1 will be here in about six weeks and between the other things I'm doing, I don't have a lot of time to sit down and plot out another 50,000 word novel.  But I love the thrill of being a winner in this competition.  It tells me I have to patience and stamina to complete something meaningful and worthwhile in 30 days. 

I always have ideas floating in my head, but how can I plot an entire story out if it is the question.
