Happy Camp NaNoWriMo! As I mentioned last week, I have a lot of writing plans on my plate for April’s Camp NaNoWriMo. This is my chance to basically brain dump all my ideas so I can see what is ready to move forward.
Snow Day = Writing 2000 words!
In a freak April Fool’s Day snow storm, I was stuck inside for a large chunk of time on April 1. Turns out the hype of the storm was bigger than the reality. At one point they were predicting 8-12 inches… in April. We got just a little over two inches. The roads remained pretty clear, but my morning was still spent inside writing. It resulting in me starting and finishing a short story related to Modern Persuasion. I am not sure how it will be used, but some people may be able to read it.
Day 2 = Writing Novels
I have two big novel projects that I am working on this year. One is a romance mystery called Missing Auggie about a woman who has to find out what happened to her missing husband. The other is my next book in my Austen series, which is based on Northanger Abbey. Imagine if Catherine Moreland was obsessed with doing paranormal research. I am co-writing this novel so I am trying to be really structured about how we work. I am not sure this is going to work, but I am excited to try. These two novels are in very different phases, but I am hoping Camp NaNoWriMo will help me with that.
Today is Camp NaNoWriMo Day 3
Today is day three and I am at work. I try to get a good buffer towards my word count on the weekends because I don’t know what time I will have for writing during the week. As I work to manage my time better, I typically only budget writing time for the weekends. That, obviously, changes a bit during a month like this, when I focus on my writing over other activities. When this posts, I will probably still be at work. Hopefully, I won’t get too behind. I know I will have more to tell you when I do my next check in.
