CampNaNoWriMo Week 2 Recap


Tomorrow will be the halfway point for the month. It’s hard to believe the month is halfway over.

How’s my writing for Camp?

Well, I’m writing every day. That’s always a good sign. My current word count is less of a good sign. I left my goal for the month at 50,000 words because I thought it would take that or a bit more to finish the first draft of The Dreams. As of this morning my word count is 7,226. That’s quite a bit below my target word count of 23,333.

I’m not giving up just yet. I always fall behind during NaNoWriMo. Sometimes I can catch up. Sometimes I can’t. I don’t think I’m so far behind just yet that I can’t catch up again.

Usually the pressure of the deadline motivates me during the last few days of the month. Then I manage to write about a third of the month’s words in the last two days. I have a feeling once I am a bit closer to the end of the story I will have a rallying burst of motivation.

One of these times I’m actually going to write steadily and stay on track or almost on track all month. Maybe that is something I can aspire to during July’s Camp session. It certainly isn’t happening this month!

How is CampNaNoWriMo going for you? Are you ahead of your target or behind?
