This is an Update.

Who stayed up past her bedtime but finished her third draft?

If you guessed anyone but me, then you are just silly. That’s the whole update. It needs another pass, but hopefully not as intense as the past three. Thanks for reading, have a good night!

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 17

Hey there readers! I hope your day is going well. Mine is not bad, I’m a little tired but that’s okay.

Day 17 words: 1733

Total Words: 33761

I didn’t completely eat up my lead, so I’m still on track to hit 50k even with my unplanned nearly week off. Not much else to say today. Y’all have a good night!

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 8

Woo. Finished early today to make up for the late finish yesterday!

Day 8 words: 1886

Total words: 27094

I don’t know if anyone likes charts like I do (hint: I love them.) But I saw this on /r/campnanowrimo and wanted to share the link. I think it’s pretty nifty because, well, like I said, I love charts.

I thought about writing extra since I finished early but I’m ahead so I’m just gonna go play Zelda for the rest of the day! Y’all have fun, and I hope you’re all doing well on your goals this month.

If you’re not, that’s okay too! You still have loads of time to catch up. If you don’t wanna do 50k, just do 1k a day. That’s a solid 30k. Or 500 a day. Just get to writing! (or editing, or whatnot.)

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 7

Woo! Week one is done! How is everyone else doing so far?

Wooo, I’m so late today! It’s almost midnight! A lot of little cuts today, sentences here and there.  I ended up spending quite a while changing a creature’s name. I spent over an hour googling different languages for snow, ice, and cold. It was kind of fun learning some of them. I also had to google what happens if a copper statue is struck by lightning. Doesn’t seem like a whole lot, really.

Camp NaNoWriMo 2017 – Day 4

Hello there!

I procrastinated again today, didn’t end up starting till almost dinner, but that’s fine. I decided to edit two chapters to try and get ahead of my daily goal.

Day 4 Words – 3162

Total Words – 20166

Goal – 50,000 words. (probably should have done chapters/editing time but this feels more impressive to me, for some reason.)

Things I noticed in editing today: Not a whole lot. There was some stuff that needed cut, like descriptions I’d already done. I had to reference my characters dress since she had lost it along the way. And wishy-washy feelings that had to be pushed one way instead of in the middle. Today I edited chapters 9 and 10. 10 is Morgan’s first chapter. I like her, she’s one of my favorites.

I think Morgan and Asherah were always my favorites in this book. I like their relationship and the way they talk to each other.

I realized something the other day. I think Morgan is my true Main Character. Though there are a handful or so of PoV, she’s the one that is the most important, it’s really her story I’m following. I wonder if maybe I need to restructure book 2 to show that better. (But that’s neither here nor there!)
