Camp Nanowrimo: Check-In

On taking Camp Nanowrimo seriously…

Bookworms, I have reached 18,797 words!

I just have another 22,000 words to go! Initially, I went in with the hopes of getting 50,000 words down this month. And while from the looks of it, it’s possible, I decided to back off and focus on the first 20,000 words. While writing I noticed there were many things I needed to refine and organize as far as world-building and character-building. Things that are important for where I want the story to go. I don’t feel like I have a picture built yet and it’s 20,000 words in!

I updated my tracker to say 20,000 words as my goal for now. I will be making another tracker for the 30,000 words that are left since I’m splitting the task of writing into 2 separate parts.

July’s camp nanowrimo is looking like it’ll be hashing out the rest of what I don’t write this month and what I don’t write in May and June.

I’ve also set some time aside to draw some covers out. The title is still nowhere in sight but at this point, I think it’s because there isn’t a clear picture in my novel yet.

This week’s inspiration – Songs:

  • Save Me by Avenge Sevenfold
  • Unsainted by Slipknot
  • Lacrimosa by Mozart
  • Dwarven Stone upon Dwarven Stone by Adam Skorupa

Inspiration Boards:

If you would like to keep track of my progress, all the above will be in Ink & Paper. Not to mention, I will be posting regularly during the event on my progress and other inspirations such as songs, places, etc.
