Camp Coming to a Close

Camp NaNoWriMo is coming to a close for me at the end of this week. If you’re still doing it, you still have another week to catch up with your word counts, so keep going!

I’m at about 45000 words right now, so only 5k more to go for my 50k goal. My project is a hodge-podge of scenes and chapters of old and new ideas alike. I’ve been having fun either way, so I’m counting all of this as a win.

I’m hoping everyone else is just as pleased with their progress on their latest creative projects!

I’m Behind

I’m behind in my NaNo word count goals. Panic in the streets!

My initial goal was to reach 50k by the 21st of the month, as the last week of July is a bit shot with being busy. Obviously I can continue to write that last week, but it’s not going to be plausible to really update my word count or stay on track as I was during the first week of the month. I figured it’d be easier to try to get to 50k before the last week.

I’m still doing okay in terms of word count and, by my calculations, I’ll only need to write about 2600 words a day to still reach my goal. Considering the initial goal was 2500 words a day and there were a couple of days where I went well over the limit, it shouldn’t be too bad to do. I just have to write around work and social obligations for the next week, that’s all.

…Therefore, I think I’m going to go continue reading my book.

Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend! Something that I was lucky enough to get in my Easter basket was the DVD of an old movie that I used to love catching on television when I was a kid: Cats Don’t Dance.

It’s this cute animated movie about a cat, and his other animal friends, who want to make it big in Hollywood. However, the people of Hollywood only give cats scripts with the line, “Meow,” on it. Therefore, the animals will just have to change the minds of the people of Hollywood and show them just how much talent and hard-work these animals really have. It’s all about following your dreams and never giving up. A bit cliche, yes, but sweet and totally relevant to anyone trying to make it big, especially in his or her creative pursuits.

Back as a kid, I never really understood the main meaning. I just thought it was a fun movie about singing and dancing animals. Now, though, it totally resonates with me. The last song, Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us, was one of my favorite parts of the entire movie. While it’s not as big as I remember, it still invokes that sense of nostalgia and the meaning is right there.

Remember to always remain positive and to keep heading towards your goals, no matter what the naysayers say!

Writing Goals

Got any good writing goals for this year?

I know, it’s February already, but we can make goals and resolutions for ourselves at any time of the year. Rachel and I were talking the other day about what we would like to get done writing-wise in the upcoming months. It’s our dream to be able to fully support ourselves on writing (and, possibly, a few other creative pursuits).

We both have pretty good day jobs, although mine is probably more money orientated while she is more passionate about hers. Yet, neither one of them are exactly what we want to be doing for the rest of our lives.

Talk of Camp NaNo for April came up. Usually I write something brand new with complete abandon, but I was thinking this year I would use that 50k writing goal to add words to some of my W.I.P.s laying around on my hard drive. Depending on how far along some of those half-finished stories are, I may end up with more than one draft being completed by the end of the month.

What about you? Any other writing goals you’re making for yourself for this year?
