Camp NaNoWriMo July 2023 – Log 2 – Week 1 Recap

Week 1 of Camp July is over already!

Wow, what a week it had been! (A normal week, by the way, just thought to spice things up 😅)

Jokes aside, I’ve been having a lot of fun writing my WIP. The story is unexpectedly getting a lot darker than I had anticipated, but I’m loving every minute of this and I’m excited to keep going. The characters keep surprising me in the best of ways and I honestly expected nothing less.

In fact!!!! I might very soon start looking for Alpha Readers, so keep an eye out!! (Hint, hint, subscribe to my newsletter to stay posted).

Anyway, enough of that! Let’s get to how week 1 of Camp July had been for me.

First of all, it had kicked off on a high note and, naturally, I was overly optimistic. The next day I slugged to even reach my word count goal. The ideas are there, the outline is staring me in the face, but I just can’t get the words to work together, you know? I powered through and got to my word count and even exceeded it a bit! Back to being overly optimistic!

Can you guess what happened next?? Yep. Day 3 was barely over 400 words.

But that’s okay!! I’ve taught myself to see this as win. Even spending time not writing and doing some outlining/planning (or even daydreaming) counts as progress, though not word-count-wise.

The process is not linear and never was. I’m proud of myself for being more consistent with writing this story, and I’m SO EXCITED for you to read it and let me know what you think of it.

Day 8 had been hard, writing-wise, but that’s for week 2 recap.

Anyway, back to writing!!
