This was my fourth Camp NaNoWriMo session!
I wanted to give my 2014 WIP, tentatively titled “Discussion of Differences,” some attention this round. It was a bit painful, recognizing the influences that one of my ex-friends had on this particular work. However, I pushed through the pain and awkwardness, and made decent progress!
Goal: Write 20,000 new words.
Here’s the synopsis I put together:
Online conversations can inspire great change. Six friends, almost on a whim, decide to leave everything behind and head to Europe. But, will they come to regret this snap decision? Travel along with Bethany, Hunter, and their friends, as they discover more about themselves, each other, and the facts of life.
Original word count: 16,237 words (48 pages)
This was strictly reading through my original 48 pages and getting reacquainted with the work.
The slump was finally broken!
I was very pleased to add more than 4,500 words to this WIP! I fell short of my goal, but it was a combination of pushing through the pain of the influences of this work, and pure exhaustion with real life. However, I feel like the story is progressing in a good direction!
I’m excited to work on something brand-new for NaNoWriMo in November!
Current word count: 20,780 words
Have you done NaNoWriMo in November before?
Have you done Camp NaNoWriMo before?
Let me know what you think!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
I should join one of these times. I think it would be a good way to push myself. November is a hard month for me with my birthday & kicking off the holidays, & we might be traveling for my birthday this year (the big 35) but we’ll see!! 🙂 Even if I only write 2 or 3 days a week, I suppose that’s better than not at all! 🙂
You really should! It’s so much fun, and I enjoy seeing my progress. I hear you – November is hard for me, too. Our wedding anniversary, and so many birthdays! Ahhhh! The big 35, how exciting! That’s how I feel, too. Writing some of the time is better than nothing!
Absolutely. I’ve been slacking. I was doing well there for a while, trying to write every day, even if it was only a few sentences. I need to get back to that!! Thanks for the encouragement. You are such an inspiration!!!
We encourage each other! You inspire me as well. A few sentences a day is great! Keep it up! We’ll both be published before we know it.
We will have to celebrate!!!! ❤ ❤ I can't wait till we can both say we're authors!!
Good for you for pushing through, but I’m sorry you had to endure heartache from it. I know how it feels to go through past memories of people you once were close to & have now become strangers. Hugs!!
Thank you! It was tougher than I expected, but that’s okay. I’m much better off now than I was then. It’s amazing how manipulative and narcissistic people can be! Hugs!
This is something to be proud of!
You’re welcome, Laura Beth!
