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

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

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

Art & Anxiety

This week has been one of the best and one of the worst. On one hand, I've completed something that I'm incredibly proud of, and I've put it out into the world. And on the other hand...I PUT IT OUT INTO THE WORLD! https://giphy.com/gifs/parks-and-rec-nbc-leslie-knope-10ABvIA9IM29tC That's the eternal struggle. I want to dedicate my life to… Continue reading Art & Anxiety

The Tools I Used To Win Camp NaNo

During Camp NaNo, I used a number of tools while I wrote. These aren't necessarily the great works of art that inspire you to go forth and create your own prose, they're more of the pen and paper variety, but you're not writing anything without the utensils, okay? Ambiance I'm a pretty big fan of… Continue reading The Tools I Used To Win Camp NaNo

CampNaNoWriMo: 50k Words And Winning

For the first time ever, I've won National Novel Writing Month. Yes, it's July, it's really just camp, and yes, technically the only thing I beat out was myself and the only thing I got out of this is a 90+ page document that I'm both exhausted and enthralled by, but wouldn't really appeal to… Continue reading CampNaNoWriMo: 50k Words And Winning
