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.
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.
