July is Over…

01 Aug

Another month, another session of Camp NaNoWriMo is over. While July 2016 left in a blur, I did manage to crank out another 50k words on a couple of newer stories.

(In hindsight, I should probably use Camp NaNo sessions to add words to my work in progresses, but my brain doesn’t work that way.)

My Camp project mostly consisted of the story that I’ve been throwing up here in parts on Sundays, the one that started with Neighborhood. Is anyone getting sick of that story yet? It really only had a vague plot to go along with the character ideas. I didn’t finish the story quite yet, so I may go back to random Sunday Scribbles soon enough.

Other words that I counted were those that I hand-wrote in my notebooks. There’s nothing more satisfying and bittersweet for a writer than a notebook filled up with your own scribbles (even better when they’re from your favorite kind of pen!). There were definitely enough times where the amount of words from my little notebook scenes would be enough to cover a couple of days’ word counts at a time.

Near the end of Camp, I literally just wrote small, fanfiction-y kind of stories, with a few new tidbits that could grow into larger works. It’s funny how NaNoWriMo is “supposed” to be spent writing one brand-new manuscript. I tend to use these sessions to just write with no abandon and see what kind of plot bunnies pop out of my mind.

I think that’s what works best for me.

I hope everyone else did well! Even if you didn’t meet your word count goals, I hope you were able to get enough down to be satisfied with your projects!
