Word Count Wednesday #02

We are at the halfway point of week two for Camp NaNoWriMo already! Can you believe how quickly camp is passing us by? I feel like I had this same sentiment back in April, but I am definitely more relaxed about it this time around.

I have a draft of a horror novel that I really need to get ready to go to a professional editor (more on that in a moment), and because I am crazy I have taken on the project of writing a brand new outline for Vini’s Story as my Camp NaNoWriMo project next month. So I literally broke out a calendar and a calculator to map out what I need to accomplish by the end of each week. As I have figured this would be a more attainable goal system for myself.
