Ten More Minutes…!

08 Jul

Rylee: “I want to hear all about it, every detail. But we can’t now.”

Current Camp NaNo Word Count: 6860/25000

My legs are SO asleep right now…! Of course the puppy wants to lay in my lap as well. That’s not gonna help wake them up!

Anyways, writing is still going good. Despite not writing yesterday, I got back up to my goal, keeping myself on par as well as going ahead by a couple of hundred words. “Bloodwork” is getting to the peak of its climax and it’s still exciting to write. πŸ™‚

Rachel, lately, as been writing for a good hour every morning, and she can get a couple of thousand words from it. I can’t do that. I have found, though trial and error, that I work best with smaller time intervals. I’ve found a handy online timer, set it for ten minutes at a time, and see how much I can write during that. Usually I can average about 400-600 words per ten minutes, which is great. If I do that for about a half hour, I usually go beyond my word count for the day, plus half of the next day’s, effectively keeping me ahead of the game.

The best part is when I forget to reset the timer and I keep going until I’ve reached about 800 words just because I’m so into the story. πŸ™‚

I hope everyone else’s writing is going well! Happy blogging!
