Well as predicted on Wednesday it hasn't been the most straightforward of writing weeks but I am pleased to say I am keeping on top of things. I think!
Here are my goals:
1) Write at least
1,613 words a day on new WIP for CampNaNo.
ROW80 check-ins a week no matter how short but sweet they
3) Read two books a week for 100+ reading
challenge (or as much as I can!).
Review one book a month.
Goal 1 - This has been very up and down with some days seeing no days written and other days loads! By the time I had finished typing up the words I had written on the train I was on 32,938 so that means on my two train journeys I had written 5,376 words. I can't help but wonder how many words I would have achieved if I had been typing on the train.
So on Thursday I wanted to get ahead and I managed to write 3,073 words. I went away on Thursday and didn't do any writing on Friday but had a great time at the spa. I did lots of thinking about writing though and lots of little snippets of ideas came to me which lend themselves to a fantasy novel. Will think about this when CampNaNo is over! When I got back on Saturday I worked out that I needed to write 4,289 words and I managed to write 4,333 words taking my total to 40,344. Felt so good to break the 40k barrier!
This morning I wrote 1,605 so my CampNaNo total is 41,949!!!
So Goal 1 is on track and yes it has not been overly consistent but when I have needed to sit and write for longer periods I have managed to make myself do so with ease.
Goal 2 - Check!
Goal 3 - I am reading book 61 so still behind but reading whenever I can.
Goal 4 - Must do this in the next few days! I have read some great books this month so will go back and decide which one to review although I think I have already decided.
So things are going well. Although I have spent time worrying about hitting my word count when I sit down to write Matchmaker, Matchmaker I really enjoy it. I am finding it easy to write as my MC and my plot outline is working out well although I have worked out some scenes I want to include later on.
I am out for the rest of the day but will check out some check-ins tomorrow! Hope you have all had a great week!!
