Camp NaNo Wrap-Up

02 May


With the arrival of May comes the end of Camp NaNoWriMo (until July, that is).

I did very well this session! I definitely reached my goal of 50k words and got into a nice habit of writing every day. I cheated a little in that my 50k words were not just for one story. They were spread out over about 2 and a half stories, but it was still 50k more words than I would have written had I not done the challenge.

The first story had some familiar characters that I’ve written about plenty of times before, and by the middle of the month I needed a bit of a break from them. After that, I started a story with brand new characters that was going very well. It was tons of fun to write, and I’ll probably keep going with it. Peppered in here and there were little short stories that I felt like writing and just added to the word count because why not?

Here’s what my stats looked like for the month:


I’m proud of how even it is! The twenty-eighth was the only day I did not get a chance to write (it was a Thursday, my “long day” at work and I had an appointment right after), but I bounced right back up.

How did you do?

    I did the A to Z Challenge instead of Camp Nano this April and I did fabulously. LOL

      Glad you did fabulously! What exactly is the A to Z challenge? Did you do prompts beginning with each letter of the alphabet?

        Exactly. You post every day but Sunday all month long following the A to Z flow. It was a lot of fun trying to think of things for Q and X and Z. LOL

        That sounds awesome! For a while that’s how I always did my prompts for my Sunday scribbles.

    Congrats! And you’re right… That’s a nice staircase. If I ever have a NaNo session that pretty, I might just die. Lol

    I ended up with about 54K on my document, but when I validated, the site says I wrote nearly 59K, which I thought was strange.

      Wow, an extra 5k? That was nice of the site to give you, lol! The site shorted me about a couple of dozen words, that was it.

      Congrats on winning NaNo too! 🙂

    Well done! Unfortunately I failed, partly because I took on an audiobook project and was prioritising that, and partly because I had just gotten lost in random typing and didn’t know what I wanted to do anymore.

      An audiobook project sounds very important! Hopefully it was fun! I routinely don’t know what I want to do in stories. I think it comes with being a “pantser.” I tend to switch stories frequently, but most end up done at some point, haha!
