Holy shit, y’all. I got close to another 7k on my word count this week. Who is this person Camp has turned me into?
And I’m hovering 500 words shy of 90k in my manuscript. This isn’t including parts that I have to go back and add to, and I have another two and a half chapters left!
Okay. Wait. Breathe. Yeah, I’m almost done. Which is what I wanted. But when I get here, nerves and excitement and the end-of-the-draft crazies descend upon me.
Want to see me freak a little about having to kill one of my main characters? Check out my Camp writing vlog below.
I hope in the next two days that I can hammer out the last few chapters. The end has thrown a few obstacles at me, and some new plot points that I didn’t think of in the plotting of this. Fun thing about my outlines is that they’re usually vague enough for me to squeeze other things in there if I need to, or condense a whole bunch of shit I thought was important but, really, wasn’t.
Yup. Even with all the moving around, I keep racking up the words. I also got to catch up on quite a few minutes, too. Far less behind than last week, and I’m confident in hitting my Camp Nano goal of 3,720 minutes written.
So, here are my number so far:
Minutes Completed: 995/840
Minutes Behind: 105
Words Written: 6,830
With four days left of writing, I have to up my daily goal from 120 minutes to 150. Easy peasy.
Time to win. You with me?
Well, I’ll be back next week with another update and another writing vlog. In the meantime, let me know if you’d ever try NaNoWriMo in the comments below.
