Camp NaNo: The Finale

on Thursday, August 4, 2016
    Well, it's August and July Camp NaNoWriMo is officially over. To be honest, I'm a little depressed now that it's over. I was so motivated to write, and now I'm coming off that high (and still recovering from Disneyland) and now I just feel tired. But at the same time, I'm ready to get back to Powerful so I can finish editing and get some beta readers.

    Remember, I started at 14,089 words, and I needed to end at 39,089 words to reach my goal. Anyway, here's how Camp NaNo ended-

Week 1- 

  • 6,316 words written this week
  • 20,405 total

Week 2-
  • 3,911 words written this week
  • 10,227 written for camp
  • 24,316 total

Week 3-
  • 6,068 words written this week
  • 16,295 written for camp
  • 30,384 total

Week 4-
  • 7,536 words written this week
  • 23,831 written for camp
  • 37,920 total

  • 2,483 words written in the last three days
  • 26,314 written for camp!
  • 40,299 total!

    YAY!!!! I DID IT!!!! I wrote 26,179 words in 29 days! And I broke the 40k mark on my first draft of A Fairy's Tale! That's a lot of writing accomplishments for one month!
    I think I'm going to set some editing goals for Powerful for August so I can get motivate myself to finish in a reasonable amount of time. 
    What about you? Do you set yourself writing goals to keep yourself on track?

You're amazing, Allie! Great job! :)

I try to set and keep writing goals as well, as they're great for motivation.

Congrats on your goal! I'm also feeling that sort of "sad that camp's over because . . ."

I was hoping to maintain at least half the pace I had going for camp and not even through the first week of this month and I'm already dragging. Someday I haven't written anything, some I've only written a hundred words or so.

Part of it is I can feel everyone else's post Camp crash. I don't know if that makes sense, but I feel like I'm making an effort to go out for a job and everyone's passed out on the couch and that looks so much more enjoyable that I join.

It's hard to stay moving when everyone else is just as worn out.
