Hey guys! Thought I’d give a little update on my Camp NaNoWriMo progress.
If you follow my blog, you’ll probably notice that I participate in almost every NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo, but usually I’m either too busy working on something else to finish it, or I end up writing a novella well under the 50,000 word goal.
This month was different. I reached my 50,000 word goal a few days ago, and I’m very happy with the work that has come out of it so far. It’s not finished yet, but I expect the final draft will be around 60,000 to 65,000 words. After that I’ll put it away for a while, then I’ll come back and edit it, which will likely make it end up around 58k to 60k. A little short for a science fiction epic, but again, I’m pretty proud of this story. I like it a lot.
I expect to finish the first draft within the next week or so.
The next session of Camp NaNoWriMo is in July. I’m not sure if I’ll participate in that one; I have a fantasy novel sitting at over 20,000 words and I should probably get back to that pretty soon. I have other ideas (I’m pretty much never short on that) but I’m not sure any of them are developed enough to begin working on.
For all my fellow campers out there, good luck! There’s still a week left, and writing something is better than writing nothing. Have fun!
