Camp NaNo, day 15

NaNoWriMo Stats

I really thought I’d manage to write more while I’ve been on vacation this week…but I haven’t managed to do that much more writing.  Today I ran around all morning, not really doing much of anything.  Yesterday I went to one of the local parks, walked and took pictures.  I guess that’s kind of what vacation is about…taking the time to do something enjoyable, right?  I think I’ll hit the farmers market tomorrow morning.  I haven’t been to it at all this year, so this would be a treat.

As far as Camp NaNoWriMo goes, I’m doing well…I wrote another 1826 words today which puts my total at 30,775…well beyond the halfway point!  Funny, yesterday I felt like I was just writing to be putting words out there, nothing that was worth anything.  Today, most of what I wrote felt like it really contributed to the story…so, we’ll see if that’s true or not when I go back through it later (like next month).

It just amazes me that, in a little over two weeks, I’ve managed to write over 30,000 words of this story that’s been begging to be written for years.  Ahh…finally…I’m doing this!

  1. Good job! It’s so satisfying, isn’t it? You’re going to beat my word count soon.

  2. Wonderful! You have a great word count, and it sounds like you are having fun doing it too. 🙂 Win-Win

    • Thanks! I really am having fun with this. Before I started, I thought it would be much more stressful than it is. Of course, I’m not finished yet!!

      • You’re doing fine. And despite the impression to the contrary, the stress really is a matter of approach. If you look at this as a matter of finding joy in the words and the experience rather than a thing to be won or lost, you’ve already won. The word count becomes gravy. 😀

  3. I’m so proud of the progress you’re making!
