I am a huge NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNo fan! I will post my progress as well as articles that will help you stay on track with your own NaNo goals.

NaNoWriMo: How Goes It?

NaNoWriMo 2013

The first week has come and gone.  If my math is correct (and you may seriously need to check me), you should be approaching the 11,662 word mark right about now.  Unless you are like me.  I like to procrastinate big time and have marathon writing sessions toward the end of the month.

I’m still inching toward my goal of finishing this semester’s workload already.  I’m making big strides, but I still have a lot to do.  NaNoWriMo is helping to keep me motivated and self-aware, though, which is great.

I’d like to hear from you.  My projects are academic and pretty boring.  Tell me what you’re doing this year.  What are you writing about?  How goes it?

NaNoWriMo is here!  Yay!

Only, I’m so swamped.  And I know.  There’s always time.  Its there, you just have to use it.  Yada, yada.  I’m pretty sure I’ve preached that sermon here at some point.  Yet, I feel the need to explain myself, make my excuses, whine a bit about the nonrenewable resource that is our time, and then get to my NaNoWriMo goal.  If you want to skip the whining bit, I’ve kindly organized this post using headings and my goals are at the bottom.

The 90 Day Novel Challenge: Final Results

But, as my mother tells me, we don’t always get what we want.  And I didn’t get what I was looking for out of this, but I did learn about my writing process.

Progress Report: CampNano & #WriteMotivation

I have made zero progress.  Literally, none.

But, that’s okay.  Its not like I’ve been completely unproductive.  I have done tons of preparation for camp and work was very crazy this week.  We had some major holdups, a big scare, and I was late getting off every single day.  Bleh!

If you want, you can check last week’s progress report to see how I did.

I have already signed up for August and I think I will be much more productive.  No camp to prep for and I’ll be working less.   I’m excited to get started, so I’m going to go ahead and share my goals now.
