Camp NaNo July 2017 Winner

camp-winner-page-banner

I validated my Camp NaNo project about a week ago, having finally reached 50k on it that morning. It always feels like a great accomplishment to reach that word count goal, even if your project ended up being more like various scenes from old ideas and fanfiction that no one else will ever see.

Still, it’s always great practice and a fun way for me to relax. That kind of writing is more on par for me nowadays, with me just having fun rather than working on a longer novel. I still have novel ideas and would love to write them one day, perhaps enough so they’re publishable, but for now I’m good with just dabbling with writing. I would love to focus more on articles and journalism for topics I’m passionate about, like diversity in mediums and video games.

I hope everyone else is doing wonderfully with their creative projects!

Holiday Weekend

nanowrimo_2016_webbanner_winner

Despite what I said last week, I decided to verify my NaNo win today, as I’m sure I’ll probably be a dork and forget to do so before the end of the month. The “official” word count that I ended with is 50327, while my word document maintains that it’s at 50432, a 105 word difference.

Either way, it’s over the 50k mark, so whatever. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Since I was able to reach 50k, I rewarded myself with Pokemon Moon and throughout the holiday weekend, just binge-played it. Of course, I also read a bit, which was nice. I actually finished a book over the weekend (rather, on Friday), which is something I haven’t done in quite some time, unless one counts rereads of some of the Harry Potter books. It was called Fan Art by Sarah Tregay, a cute teen novel about a teenager who fell in love with his best friend and the girls in his art class rooting for the pair, with a deeper theme of censorship, representation, and diversity.

It was awesome having the holiday weekend to rest and relax, especially after a Thanksgiving dinner full of good food and family.

How was your holiday weekend?

Camp NaNo Wrap-Up

cnw_winner_1500-1

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?
