Good morning, friends! I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday morning. It’s the first day of July and that means it’s time to start cranking out words for Camp NaNoWriMo. 🙂
I’ve been up for a couple of hours now. I took my puppy for a walk and had breakfast. Now I’m getting ready to start writing but I thought I’d pop in here for a quick blog post. That way I’ll be held accountable for my writing goal and won’t give up! (I hope…)
What am I writing?
This month I’ll be working on the rewrite of Get Over It, the first book in The Amelia Chronicles series. I haven’t written an outline but I’ll be using the first book (which I wrote in January 2017) as a guideline. The reason I’m rewriting it is because the first time around it was a novella (around 20k words) but this time I want to expand it into a full novel.
What is my word count goal?
I have pledged to write 50,000 words this month. That means I will be writing 1,666 words per day.
How am I staying organized?
That’s the million dollar question, isn’t it? If you’ve participated in any NaNoWriMo before you know that it can get a bit crazy trying to balance your daily word count goal along with your daily life. This month I will be writing my novel in Google Drive because I can access the document on both my computer and my phone.
That way I’ll be able to write on the go if I find myself out and about with time to kill.
The other way I’m staying organized is by tracking my words for the month on this printable word count worksheet that I created.
Are you participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this month? Let’s be friends! My username is Cellospice on the website and I’m always looking for new writing friends/accountability partners!
