Well, friends, at the end of Day 4 of Camp NaNoWriMo, I had logged 9,590 words – averaging 2,397 words per day. Not too shabby! I’m impressed that I’ve already written more in April than I did in either February or March.
For whatever reason, I’m finding it to be a little easier this month to sit down and force myself to write. I definitely have a trend–before I get to 1,000 words, it’s hard for me to get momentum, but once I have a decent amount down on the paper, I just keep rolling.
So far, I’m enjoying my story and my characters. The outline that I wrote before the beginning of the month has been very helpful and keeps me on track. Though I’m optimistic that I’ll hit 50,000 words this month, I don’t know that I’ll actually finish this project. I’m at around 22,000 now, and the story is just getting started. There’s still a lot of ground to cover.
If you’re doing Camp NaNoWriMo, or if you have any other writing goals this month, I hope they’re going well for you!
