Camp NaNoWriMo, April 2013: Day Seven

7 Apr


Not much to say today. I was a bit frustrated that I couldn’t Write or Die earlier because I was writing in my room (where it’s quiet and I can type undisturbed) but the internet wasn’t working. It does that sometimes, though Cal can get reception in there. Bit weird. Anyway. I really wanted to Write or Die and was frustrated when I couldn’t, so I started off a bit slow, but when I moved on into a new scene it was a lot easier to get going. I remember being at 11,000 and thinking “I have 600 words to go for today’s count” and suddenly I was at 12,000! It was awesome.

Things I DIDN’T do today: write up an article for Top Shelf and an article for Today I Found Out. I’ll be doing the former quite soon. The latter’s deadline is technically end of the month, though if I want to stay on top of my quota I’ll just have to double up this coming week.

Still thinking I don’t know my characters well enough, but thanks to a few tips, I hope to get to know them soon enough!

How many words did you write today? 2017
How long did it take you to write them? 74 minutes
How many Facebook breaks did you take?  None; the internet wouldn’t work in my room!
How many characters have you killed off to date? 0! (I keep pushing it back… in a few chapters, I’ll kill someone off for sure.)
How many NaNoWriMo Angels have you murdered? Like half of one today. But I did some surgery on it so it could live!
Have you stopped using contractions yet? Nope.
What was today’s reward for finishing word count? Making banana bread. =D
Cups of Tea: 2
How any pieces of chocolate were consumed? 1 piece of chocolate.
Total NaNoWriMo Word Count So Far: 12,035
Words to Goal: 37,965
Days Remaining: 24
