Final Camp NaNo word count: 42,981. So not 50,000, but I came very, very close. Still proud that I have a solid WIP to work on for the next month.
I didn't think I was going to be participating in Camp NaNo for the forthcoming month, but I realized that it's been a while since I've done a full on writing/editing blitz. I have one novel that I'm writing from scratch and another I'm editing down, one of my aforementioned projects. I haven't had much time to carve out, but I'm planning on making it count.
To everyone participating this month, I wish you all the best. *waves virtual pom-poms and hands out virtual chocolates*
Yeah, I'm not going to meet my goal for the month because I've been stuck editing profusely along with other things, but the next couple of days, I'll be doing some writing blitzes between reading, so that ought to count for something.
But at least after NaNo, I can focus my attention to some of the narratives I've left sitting and marinating for a while (and I have a feeling they needed the downtime, because I'm a little more refreshed and pumped to work with them).
Updates probably coming on Wattpad tomorrow or Thursday. I blame being in a sugar fog from left over birthday cake. =/
Hovering about 30K on my Camp NaNo WIP, but I'm a little slow about updating it to Wattpad since I've been like a bunny rabbit writing scenes - pretty much hopping around trying to figure the best place to put them, and snap them in like puzzle pieces. So far, the rewrite for this novel is going really well, probably better than I expected it to for progress.
On the other hand, I'm basically taking tonight and catching up with ARC reading, so no new status updates tonight other than this one (unless something else comes up). Reviews might be another story depending on what I'm able to accomplish, but in case I don't get a chance to say it again tonight: happy reading (and/or writing)!
Went to my campus bookstore today perusing books and bought a few hard copies of books - one of which is a new copy of William Gibson's "Neuromancer" (believe it or not, all the times I've read it, I've checked it from my local library). I didn't have as much time to browse as I wanted, but I'm going to a flea market sale tomorrow and probably going to check out the .25 - $1 book sales they're having there. Maybe I might get a good haul. Not sure yet, but I feel like I need to splurge because the last few reads I've had....yeah. I need book therapy/good reads stat, so I'm trying to stick with finishing books that I'm enjoying or have enjoyed from what I've perused so far.
If I get a big book haul, I'll post a few pictures for you guys to peruse tomorrow sometime.
Hovering at about 24K on my NaNo project rewrite so far. I've posted 7 chapters (including a prologue) of "The Dark Jumper" on Wattpad. Still working on a cover for it. >___< I'm hoping to catch up this weekend on writing this narrative more and who knows, I might make headway into reaching my target wordcount for the month (55K - 60K).
Trying to catch up on my ARC queue still, got a few new approvals from NetGalley (for 3 months, unless it's a book I've been waiting on, I'm not requesting any more ARCs. That's true for my blog too, at least until I get caught up with my current pending requests. And I'm behind on blogging too because of day job and family stuff, so I have to get my mojo back. =P)
So I'm still a busy bee, but I'm around. =)
