Catching Up

I really don’t have much to say today, except that I got behind by a day in my NaNoWriMo word count. I’m just thankful that NaNo ends this month during a weekend, so I have plenty of time to catch up!

I hope everyone else is doing well with their writing projects, or any creative projects, this month, be they Camp NaNo related or not!

(Hey, think I can add the words of my posts to my NaNo count? No? Okay, fine…)

Multiple Projects

Rachel saw my post from yesterday and said (not unkindly), “Oh, it’s another picture!”

I’ve thought the same many times, especially during this month.

While I genuinely like the pictures of advice and quotes that I find, and I hope that any readers do as well, I have fallen a bit behind when it comes to actually having written posts. It tends to happen during NaNo months where I’m more focused on my word count than preparing blog posts in advance.

I tend to do that with many things — I’ll focus on one project and forget about the rest for a while. I could definitely be better organized, give myself a small schedules and time frames to work on certain projects, but then I feel as if that stifles said projects. I don’t want to spend only a half hour sketching out a drawing before having to switch my mind’s gears over to reading. Perhaps I would do better with designated days, or pledge myself to spend a certain amount of hours each week, with free hours, on projects.

I just need more deadlines looming over my head, I think.

How do you deal with multiple projects?

Slumping Through

The second week of Camp NaNo is almost over… How are all of you doing with your projects?

I’m pretty much slumping through, keeping up with my word count at least, but not whizzing through my writing as I’ve done on the past few NaNo months. It may be due to the fact that I don’t have a solitary project to focus on. This month, I’m just adding words to random unfinished stories or just doing little one-shots. Usually I start off with a new project in the spirit of NaNo and, occasionally, take small breaks from it by doing the occasional one-shot before going back to the new project.

I do my best to stay motivated with some favorite music playing while writing or rereading old pieces that I had fun creating. What about you? What do you do to stay motivated through slower writing days?

Spelling Woes

refrigeratorcapture

When Rachel and I write in different rooms of the house, we tend to go on Skype and bother each other. It’s all in good fun, and works well when we’re both working on blog posts, especially for Double Jump.

A couple of days ago, we were talking while working on our Camp NaNo projects, and Rachel suddenly pings me with that little nugget about the word “refrigerator” and how it always looks wrong. As she had pointed out a few minutes later, refrigerator has the word fridge in it — shouldn’t it also have the letter d?

Later on, I mention how “activities” doesn’t look right, either.

There any words that you find yourself writing or using a lot that eventually look just wrong? No matter how many times you check your spelling and know it’s spelled correctly, but it still seems off?

Camp – Day Three

How’s everyone doing with their Camp NaNo project?

I’m doing pretty well staying on par with my word count (we’re supposed to be up to 5k today), but we also have a wake and funeral in the next couple of days. Obviously, a funeral trumps writing, but the writing will be a good distraction as well.

I’m not too sure what exactly I’m writing (story of my life (no pun intended)). They appear to be little slice-of-life things, one-shots for me to just explore writing emotions and developing characters. Down the line I may use my word count goal to just add onto unfinished stories like I had originally planned!

I hope everyone else is doing well with their writing projects!
