So as you all know I’m participating in this month’s Camp NaNoWriMo! I decided it would be fun to do a sort of “Write With Me” over the course of a week, and I can do this for each week of the month! I think it’ll be exciting to be able to look back on and keep you all updated with where I am with my writing.
Sunday, July 1
11 AM I’m going to start today by doing some blogging and reading, and then get stuck into writing. My goal for the month is 50,000 words and hopefully finish my current WIP!
7 PM I haven’t done a lot of writing today, ugh. My goal was 1500 words so and I’ve only got around 400 words. I’m going to do some sprints with my writing group now to see if that helps.
12 AM Okay, it’s midnight and I can say I’m absolutely delighted that I got to 3,070 words as a total for today! I’m going to bed now but I’m so happy with the progress I’ve made for the first day!
Monday, July 2
2 PM I’ve not done any writing yet today, just watched some more episodes of The Vampire Diaries and worked on a blog post. And I’m going into Dublin now for the day so I won’t get any writing done there. Hopefully I can make it up tonight!
10:30 PM So I’m just after finishing Love Island and am going to participate in some more sprints with my cabin. Hopefully I can get some words down!
12 AM I ended up getting 670 words in total! Not what I was aiming for but it’s better than nothing!
Tuesday, July 3
12:15 PM Right! I’ve spent my morning reading some of Moxie, watching some more of The Vampire Diaries and Skins and working on some blog posts! I’m going to get some lunch now and do a writing sprint or two. Luckily I’m meeting with my writing group so we should get a good few words down! My goal for today is 2000 words, but I would love to catch up and get to 34,500 words of my WIP (I’m currently at 31,500!)
2:50 PM I know I said I would do some writing sprints but that has just not happened…however, my friends are here now and we’ve settled with tea so we’re going to get stuck in now!
11:45 PM So my friends have been gone a while, but I’m super happy with the progress I made! Doing sprints with them REALLY help me so we’re gonna try meet up as often as possible over the course of the next month. I’ve written over 2000 words and just 34k! I’m going to write a little more now but then head to bed so I’ll fill you all in tomorrow morning if anything major happens between now and then!
Wednesday, July 4
11 AM Today I’m heading out in an hour or so to go to Bray for the cliff walk so I won’t be getting any writing done until this evening!
10 PM Okay, I’m literally only home now and I’m absolutely wrecked so I’m hoping to finish Chapter 10 I’m working on and hopefully get around 1000 words written before bed!
11:50 PM I finished chapter 10, as well as writing just under 1000 words, thanks to two sprints! I’m devoting tomorrow to writing anyways so hopefully I can reach 38,000 words!
Thursday, July 5
3 PM This morning I’ve taken it pretty easy. I caught up on last night’s Love Island and Ackley Bridge and read some more of Moxie. I’m at my friend’s now so hopefully we’ll get a lot more writing done!
11 PM Yasss! I’m so happy with the progress I made today. I reached my goal of 2000 words and also hit a total 10,000 out of 50,000 for my Nano! Time for sleep now!
Friday, July 6
3 PM I’ve spent the morning sleeping in and watching the latest Poldark episodes so I’m only sitting down now to start writing. My goal is 2000 words today which will bring my WIP up to 40,000 words! I’m going to do some sprints now with my writing group so hopefully that will help me get some words down!
6PM I got two sprints done and 1000 words written! I took a little break and finished Moxie but now it’s time to get back to writing!
1 AM So I know it’s technically Saturday but I’ve finished writing. I got so much done today! Over 3000 words written and finished Chapter 11 with a devastating end! Hopefully tomorrow’s progress goes just as well! 🙂
Saturday, July 7
10 PM I’m staying over at my friend’s tonight so I didn’t get a lot of writing done today. I got about 200 words written but I don’t mind that much because I am ahead of my goal for today anyways! Hopefully I’ll get lots done tomorrow.
Sunday, July 8
2:30 PM Okay so I’m sitting down now to get some writing done today. Aiming to write 1500 words and bring myself up to 43k in my WIP!
8:30 PM I’m about to have dinner and then sit down to watch Love Island but I think I finished off this week very strongly. In total today I wrote 3,615 words! I reached 17/50k after just Week 1, which is pretty crazy considering that’s nearly halfway there!
So there’s my first update for Camp NaNo! I hope you guys enjoyed this post! If you did, let me know and I’ll continue it for week two!
Until next time,
