It is day 13 of Camp NaNo. I’ve not blogged for a bit, it is the start of the Easter holidays in the UK, and approaching the halfway point for Camp.
I originally intended to write 30,000 words for Camp, as that was a thousand a day which seemed like a pretty neat number. A few days ago though, I lowered that to 25,000. If I get ahead of myself, i’ll raise it again, but as it stands, I am here with an open file containing around 3170 words. I should be nearer the 10k, 11k mark by now. The write – in in Birmingham was okay, I did write about 500 words, but that was over a seven or so hour period.
I had to run out for food and take a dianetics test. I’m not a Scientologist, I just wanted to see if I could wangle a free Hubbard book. It didn’t work though. I worked out how to fix the stress test too, so it was all a bit funny.
Friday was the write – in for Wolverhampton Writers’ Guild, the group that was set up during NaNo 2013 that I organised with a few other people. There were only two of us this week, the other person being the ML of Birmingham, Susan, so we got some good work done. I started the day with 1344 words and ended it with 2555, which was a massive confidence boost. If I could keep that going, I would hit target before the end of April.
I have decided to write the new idea I had, the Stephen King type novel will have to wait. Again.
