Camp NaNo, Day 8

So… there’s this writing thing going on, and I’ve been steadily falling further and further behind.

Not to mention that I’ve been forgetting to blog about my status! Which is partly because I haven’t been writing as much as I’d like, and partly because I keep forgetting to do anything before going to sleep at night. Days have been wearing on me dearly, lately.

But this morning I woke up with something in my head that begged me to write it. And it’s a short novel, I think. Likely severely short, and not sure if it will be saleable at that length, but I’m going to have fun with the creeptastic style it wants to be written in. I sat down and wrote over 3500 words on it today. Which starts to put me back into contention to make 50k this month if I can keep up a decent pace from here on out.

At this point, I have written 11,537 words so far this month, 3500 of which are on a new novel project (we’ll nickname it Split for convenience) and the other 8k on side projects. This isn’t bad. And it’s a lot better than I was doing as of yesterday.

I’ll try to be better about updating, but tomorrow I test for my brown belt in tae kwon do. There will definitely be a post upcoming about that!

11537 / 50000 words. 23% done!


About D. E. Atwood

When D.E. Atwood was in second grade, she finally grew tall enough to see the shelf above the mysteries in the bookmobile. She discovered a rich landscape of alternate worlds, magic, and space and has never looked back from the genres of fantasy and science fiction. When she was twelve, she declared that she was going to be a writer, and share the stories that she saw happening all around her. She wanted to create characters that others would care about, and that would touch their lives, like the books that she read had touched her own life. Today she has combined her interests, creating genre stories about the people who live next door, bringing magic into the world around us. When not writing, D.E. Atwood is a mother (to two children and a cat), a wife, a reader, a knitter, a systems administrator, a roleplayer, and a music aficionado. Sleep, she claims, is optional.
