I've treated these guys like they're in progress for so long that it's hard to shift over to transformed.

Camp NaNoWriMo July 2020 – Week 1

Day 1 - 2571 words. Day 2 - 1042 words. Felt too distracted to do well, issues in my neighborhood made me feel uneasy and paranoid (but the multiple cars that parked outside my house then drove off were probably coincidental and had nothing to do with the right wing crazies around). Spent the day… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo July 2020 – Week 1

First Day of CampNaNoWriMo And I’m Feeling Introspective

July is usually exciting. It's both my and Husband's birthday month, it's warm enough to go swimming and do other fun summer activities, and it's Camp NaNo, but in the midst of everything else going on in the world...well, you know. Regardless, I'm using the summer version of National Novel Writing Month to write, write,… Continue reading First Day of CampNaNoWriMo And I’m Feeling Introspective

Final Update And A Win! – Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020

https://www.tiktok.com/@dietspriteaunt/video/6820531534605454598 Although this book is far from being completely drafted, I MET MY GOAL AND HIT 50K WORDS YESTERDAY! And with three whole days to spare which is, like, incredible for me, the great procrastinator. This draft has simultaneously been the easiest and most difficult I've done so far. I'm learning skills to make the… Continue reading Final Update And A Win! – Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020 – The Home Stretch and Project Projections

I've had a series of unfortunate events occur, which hasn't stopped the writing train, but it has slowed it slightly. I got poison ivy from some yard work over a week ago, and it reached its worst this past weekend and into Monday. I've also been battling a sore throat for a few days which… Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo April 2020 – The Home Stretch and Project Projections

CampNaNoWriMo April 2020 – Halfway There

I reached the halfway point in my camp project yesterday, just over 25k words, two days ahead of schedule. I have to say, after a shaky start, this feels damn good. And even better than how the word count feels is the plot itself. Vacancy has always been silly and loose, so in a way… Continue reading CampNaNoWriMo April 2020 – Halfway There

CampNaNo April 2020 Week 1

Week one is (mostly) done, and so I thought I may be too. Not because I'm sick of this story--on the contrary I'm super excited about it--but because I didn't record my words correctly on any day, and I'm behind! I actually spent a lot of time reorganizing and plotting the first couple days of… Continue reading CampNaNo April 2020 Week 1

April CampNaNo Kickoff

It's finally April, a month I've been looking forward to (and also dreading a little) all year. When I planned out my 2020 writing schedule, I used the National Novel Writing Months as a framework for my first drafts. April, July, and November are all for drafting, while the other months are for brainstorming, plotting,… Continue reading April CampNaNo Kickoff
