Camp Catch-Up (BEDA 18)

I've mentioned a couple of times how I'm behind on Camp NaNoWriMo, and, well, that's still the case right now. Doing Camp NaNo and Blog Every Day has been a lot more challenging than I imagined it would be, but I was still trudging along well enough at first. However, due to personal reasons, I've put this project on hold for a bit and have purposefully avoided it for at least a good week. I just really couldn't even think about it.

But this week, I've made an effort to get back in the groove a little. The novel I'm writing this month is actually the sequel to the novel I'm currently trying to get published. I've revisited what I've written thus far, made a few quick edits, and outlined some chapter ideas. And now, I really feel like I'm ready to dive back into this thing and get caught back up on my Camp NaNo-novel. And since I don't really have any plans for tomorrow (today?), I'm going to see if I can't just buckle down and really tackle this thing, and hopefully make a significant impact on my word count.

  1. You know what? Last year, a dear friend of mine passed away and I could not write anything. It was so raw. But the more I thought of it, the more motivated I became to pick up where I left off and write. Now that I am editing, I realized it was one of my strongest chapters. Talking about writing in pain.

    I hope you will make progress with your writing. Don't let it slide, ok?
