What I’m Doing Monday

What I’m Writing

I finished the first full draft of my freelance project, and I’ve sent in a partial revision. Other than that, I’ve been working on Camp NaNoWriMo sporadically.

Book Review: Alice in Zombieland

Book Review: No Place

Book Review: Beauty Queens

What I’m Reading

Read this Week: I read Petey by Ben Mikaelsen for TypeOneTwo.org.

Reading Now: I’m starting Beautiful Darkness today.

Reading Next: Next up will be a YA book that I’ve yet to pick up from the library.

Camp NaNoWriMo Wrap-up

So I didn’t come anywhere near my 40,000 word goal for April, but I did make some pretty good progress. As of Saturday, I’ve written 23,408 words. That’s just under 1/3 of the way toward my goal for the final novel word count of 75,000. I’ll be able to finish this first draft by the beginning of July if I keep up this pace.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that I need to be consistent with making time to write. I need to dedicate the same ninety minutes a night to writing fiction and not let anything encroach onto that time.

While I may not have won Camp NaNoWriMo this year, I think that it was quite successful.
