CampNaNoWriMo July 2016 Recap


CampNaNoWriMo is over for the year. I miss it already! I continued my track record of zero wins during Camp, but I made a lot of progress in July and that’s all I really needed.

I set my goal at 50,000 words and I went back and forth trying to decide if I wanted to lower that goal until it was too late and I was stuck with my 50,000 word goal. Lesson learned! If I think I might want to lower my goal I should just do it. If I decide I want to write more again later I can do just that.

  4. Worst day: July 29 with 53 words

  1. I’m glad you made progress. That’s what counts=)
    I had a lot of days this July when I just couldn’t force myself to stop procrastinating and just write already, but in a mess of a few hectic days before the deadline, I managed to reach 50k. I’ve never written anything long because of laziness/lack of motivation so this is a very big deal for me. Not sure how things’ll work out in the future though=D


  2. No win here either or no finished project but whatever you wrote is good. On the note about changing your word count if you feel it necessary, do it. Better to overshoot a goal than getting too stressed over an unreachable goal.
    The main thing to take away from it, I think, is that you have learnt something about you and your writing.
