Ok. I'll be honest. The last few days have not been glorious. Well actually they have been but not in terms of writing progress.
Here are my goals:
1) Until 1st August Spend 30 minutes atleast
a day on preparing for my new WIP.
2) Think of a name for CampNaNo
3) Two ROW80
check-ins a week no matter how short but sweet they
4) Read two books a
week for 100+ reading challenge (or as much as I can!).
Review one book a month.
I am checking in so that is goal 3 met. Let's focus on that achievement for a while!
Since Wednesday I don't feel I have achieved much towards goal 1 as I haven't produced any notes etc. for my NaNo project. I have read alot of great posts though offering advice about plotting though as I currently have 3 possible plots I may follow and I need to decide which one to go with. And I have thought. A LOT. So I am not sure I can say I have done 30 minutes each day but if you add all my thinking and reading together it probably is atleast 30 minutes a day. I have been reading for pleasure but still not done my book review for this month.
As I write this feel a bit lacklustre...it hasn't been terrible but I haven't anything to show for this week. But thinking is important so I am happy I have been mulling things over and I would rather have three potential plots then none!! So my challenge for this week is to produce some character profiles as I found these invaluable for NaNo last year as there is no time to search back through my writing to find out what colour hair I said a character has. I will admit for the WIP I finished recently I didn't have these and had to write NAME for a couple of small characters when I couldn't remember what name I had given them.
So not a disaster but not amazing. But at least I am here and trying!
I have told my sister about CampNaNo and she is very supportive which will be invaluable as I am staying with her and her husband for two weeks in August. Oh and with my little nephew who I can't help but adore. I have even enjoyed changing his nappies this weekend! So I am glad I will have her support for the summer.
Here is to an even better week!!!
