Camp nano #2

Sunday 14th April 2013



Here I am again, reporting briefly on my weeks happenings, trials and tribulations of the participating in this wonderful project.  the writing of a novel, poems, or short stories to your nominated word count. That is one main difference to the November Nanowrimo.

Sunday 7 –  No words today, the weekend is always difficult for me,  so my stat is saying finish on May 5th at the current word rate.
Monday 8 – I was actually going quite well today  until my daughter, who is still on Easter break decided to interrupt with some questions. I of course did not mind, but i could not get myself back on track  so only logged 1400 words, Stats saying the same.
Tuesday 9–  1000 words today,,not very many, unable to get my mind in sync with the story and it didn’t help because I was distracted by an advert about a site on Campnano called Leanpub and the investigating of it. It looks very good will investigate further.
Wednesday 10 – I was going fairly well  and at 1500 words,, chapter 4 , the story going well again. Setting up the scenes and plotting ideas and more characters being introduced.
Thursday 11 – Today I managed just over 2000 words, just meandering words, setting the scene and ideas further more. I was at a point getting rather bored, I am writing it but wanting to add some excitement, but decided to stick with tension. I don’t actually like killing characters, although I killed three so far.
Friday 12 – I had a chat with a fellow Camper… who seems to be struggling a little with words and maintaining the levels required and between us we boosted each others confidence.  I proceeded with a great word count and will by the end of the night have reached the half way point. A few days early because once again the weekend is here and the words will be few. After logging the recent count it now says I will finish on the 25th of April.
Come Monday I will probably be behind again, but still in touch. The mixed emotions and feelings and the up and downs are so hard to understand for me. But one thing for sure, that I like and would think every writer enjoys, is seeing the characters develop their personality, some even write themselves. My main characters in this story are all based off my brothers and sister. Or how I see them ,,,,heeheehaaahaa,, the evil laugh echo’s across the WP cyber world. 
thank you09

  1. Just the sacrifice of a bit of sleep will get you back on track! 🙂

  2. Sounds like you are making good progress. I was just wondering, does all the focus on words inhibit your creative flow? I think the pressure of word count would distract me–but that’s just me…

    • Actually I thought the same but as it happens Lorna, it does encourage in a funny way,, but as i said it can have two way effect.. but mostly an encouraging one. It gives me stories after the fact to work on process it all.. Thank you 😉
