Camp NaNoWriMo Update #3!

I thought I would quickly update you guys on where I am at with Camp NaNoWriMo because I got a lot accomplished this week already! My goal for Camp NaNoWriMo is 30,000 words because I figured with me working 32+ hours a week, I may have not have a lot of time for writing, but I have been proved the opposite. I am already over halfway over my goal and it is the only the eleventh day! Today I wrote 2264 words which brought my word count up to 17,264 words, which means I have just over 12,000 words to go. I actually already have 30,000 words technically, but that is only because I started writing a week or two before Camp NaNoWriMo, but by the end of the month I should have at least 42,000 words. My whole goal for this book is a minimum of 60,000 and I am hoping that I can keep it in the 70-80,000 range…but by the looks of it at the moment that will NOT be the case. I estimate that my first draft will end up being over 100,000 words easily which is really intimidating! One thing that has been helping me a lot this Camp NaNoWriMo, and has been motivating me to write more and more, is following @NaNoWordSprints on twitter (while you are at it, if you want to add me my Twitter is @Zoe_M8, I tweet when my blog posts go live and about writing and reading!) During the months of Camp NaNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo, they have people who lead anywhere between 10-30 minute long writing sprints where they encourage you to write as much as you can it that time span, take a break and report what you accomplished, and then get back to writing. I have a lot of fun participating in them and if you need to get your word count up or just need some more inspiration to write, definitely follow them! As I am writing this blog post, my phone is buzzing with notifications from their page…

Anyways, that is all for my Camp NaNoWriMo Update and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Favourite Books of 2017 (So Far).
