We are just a day away before I can officially claim my win for Camp NaNoWriMo’s July session. I can’t believe we only have thirteen more days of camp before it’s over for the year. At least we have NaNoWriMo itself in November, right? At that point, I am hoping to be solely focusing on writing the new first draft of Vini’s Story. Balancing two projects isn’t exactly the easiest and I admit (spoiler alert), I’ve fallen behind on my Untitled Horror Project plan for the month. There will be more on that in the upcoming (long overdue) update. So as these word count posts pertain to the brand new outline for Vini’s Story, you may wonder where I am at with it now.
At this present moment I have 3,156 words out of my 2,000 word count goal.
Yeah. I have made zero progress this past week on the outline. Despite having already made my goal this month, I’m actually a little disappointed I didn’t get to contribute more since last week. It was a pretty busy week for me though, which resulted in the outline getting set aside. I’m hoping to get at least a little more work done between now and next week Wednesday.
I have to admit I’m pleased with myself for not rushing through this outline. It can be all too easy to want to rack up the word count in these writing challenge sessions. However, I’ve kept a level enough head to just take my time and carefully consider where the story is going next as Vini tells her tale.
That’s it for me today. If you’re working on a writing project, how’s it coming along? Whether you are participating in Camp NaNoWriMo or not, let me know in the comments below!
