Well, I meant to update more often that I did, but I did end up winning Camp NaNo for July
So far the writing seems to be working, I haven’t actually changed a whole lot, but I have added over 8k in new words to all the rewriting I’ve done so far. I’m up to 30k overall of the rewrite, and so far it seems to be progressing well.
That’s the entire update. Thanks for reading
Sorry to have been so quiet, I’m a little writer blocked and so was not doing much of anything. I got an email last night that it’s July Camp NaNo, so I decided to try and break through the block by participating.
As I said before in a previous post I had to start over on E1, I’m still going to work on that, during the Camp, I haven’t given up or abandoned that.
I’ll try and update a few times a week with word counts, get back in the swing of things
Hi there, everyone!
Okay, so I guess I should throw some updates out here for y’all. I got stuck, so I haven’t been writing all that well. I decided this morning that I’m going to start back at the beginning and start rewriting from there. Most of it is fine so there won’t be too many changes but something got lost somewhere and I need to find it and undo it, and the only way I can think of to do that is to start back at the beginning.
I think I was trying to hard to fit the story into a specific timeline and lost track of the actual story. I’m going to pretend that the original book doesn’t exist and write the story from there. I may end up having a lot more revisions on E2 than I originally expected but that’s okay, there’s a lot of story there, so I need to let it run free instead of trying to keep it reined in.
Thanks for reading, and sorry for such a long time between updates!
Well, in case the title didn’t spoil it, I won Camp Nano this year!! I may have teared up… (again.) My goal this month was 51k words. I don’t know why it just seemed like a good amount. I just passed that and I am quite pleased.
I think even when I first started writing I would never have thought I would have written over 150k words in the same world.
That’s insanity to me that that many words could have come from me tripping over a rock on a bad day. I think I’ve finally hit a rhythm on E1 (God, I need to think of a title.) and have dug some more story out of it that I didn’t know was there.
If I can do this, I can do anything.
Anyway, I should be writing.
Whoops. I forgot to update.
Last update: 34671
Total word count: 42,508
So that means I wrote 7,837 since my last update. Short update today, I’m out of words.
