screaming and asking myself whether or not I can reach my Camp Nano goal
Update for the night: wrote 1088 words
Day 28 – SUN
Mission impossible: write 2000 words.
No pressure right?
12.20 – 6pm wrote 1334 words
Only need to pump out 666 words more. Wish me luck. Ahem, it’s not weird to correspond with a journal now, is it?
9.57pm thank goodness…reached 2000. Mission, I’m possible. Okay bad joke, but you get it.
I think I am able to catch up.
Day 29 – MON
Stop biting your nails, Alex! You can do this!
It’s not going to be easy to write this part especially when trouble resurfaces and the plot thickens. A lot of things are happening in this scene. AND continuity – ahhhhh – the hardest to write. At this point, I was telling myself that it is ONLY the first draft and in the editing phase, I could fix that later.
Update: Thank the God of Goals for letting me surpass 1500** words. Because I got 1728 words written! Woohoo!
Day 30 – TUES
Game face on.
Goal: reach 25 000 words
Now sitting at 24, 164 words. Need another thousand. Aaaaaaaaah!!!
3 – 7.15pm almost the whole day writing. So far written 1893 words. I reach a thousand…but then changed my mind as I wanna reach 2000. Because you know it’s only 200 more words to go.
Challenge accepted to write another 200.
Did I succeed?
I know you already know the answer. It’s up there in that picture for crying out loud. But I’ll still say it…
10.59pm added 151 words ….. so that meant…
Total: 2044 words.
I can’t even breathe right now. Wo-hoo! I did it.
I did it…
I did it?
I DID IT!!
It’s already the end of Camp Nanowrimo. To those who had participated, I hope you had as much fun as I did. How did you guys do? I love to hear your comments!!
So week 2 – the ship has sailed, and then week 3 happened, the ship has sunk.
Spoiler alert: don’t climb on board.
Day 8 – Mon
Monday went well. I was quite productive. The only problem was I wasn’t at the start of the day. I procrastinated a lot so I started writing at 4-ish which was a bad time to write since I have to write a blog post (which was this one -but couldn’t get around to doing it),a movie review, and CAMP NANO!!!
Positive me: YAY!
Actual me: -_- send backup!
Somewhere along the way, I wrote 54 words. Progress right?
4.53 – 5.30pm written 440 words
6 – 7.06pm The body needs a workout but too lazy to move from my seat. I NEED to write some more to meet my goal. In the end, it starts to rain so is this the writing god telling me I have a chance at reaching today’s goal.
Wrote 254 words down, only 306 words to go….hurray for late nights.
Dinner. Finished. Time to write some more.
9.30 – 10.59pm This isn’t ending well. 145 written down….and it’s super late but I managed to hit my daily word count that is 834 words. Now having (in total): 893 words. Time to hit the hay. NITES!
Day 9 – TUES
So I haven’t done much. I have forgotten that I was conducting an experiment so I didn’t list down my journal entries….these are based on my memory as I remember doing them:
10.45 – 12.20pm-ish I read 4 chapters. Woohoo! Eliza and her Monsters is getting interesting. I cannot wait to see/read what happens next.
12.25 – 1.50pm Blogging some great ideas for the future. Something to do with writing. Hence, this blog is about me documenting my writing journey…if you haven’t noticed.
3 – 4pm-ish A friend wanted to video chat but ended out being sick so had to cancel. So then (while I was buying sometime waiting for him), I found a writing podcast while scrolling down Google which I recommend you to give a listen toWriting Excuses.
You may have heard of it. It is hosted by Brandon Sanderson, Howard Tayler, Dan Wells, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Margaret Dunlap.
It’s only 15 minutes long – worth giving a listen – so worth it!!
