I did it! Successfully managed to write to my goal of 20,000 words for the month, which means I ‘won’ Camp NaNoWriMo. Feeling pretty happy about that, though I didn’t quite finish writing the novella which sucks a bit. I thought I would finish it yesterday but ended up spending the entire day in bed with a crippling headache. I have codeine now though, and am actually capable of functioning a little (yay codeine!).

August is lined up to be another busy month. It’s ‘The End is Nigh‘ over at Kiwiwriters and I need to finish the first draft of Shell & Bone, and then make the beginning of Burn as good as the rest of it before submitting. And then I think it’s back to revision on ‘The Way the Sky Curves’. Which I guess makes it a month of novellas. Will be super nice to have them all at the next stage of writing though, and puts me well on the way to completing my goals for the year.

How was July for you? And what are you planning for August?

  1. Yay! I’m so excited to hear that you won. Unfortunately, I didn’t. I’m a little bit disappointed with myself, but it is what it is and I just didn’t have the time. I’ve been spending too much time helping my parents move!

    I can’t wait to get my greedy hands on some of your novellas. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thanks Chibi ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully won’t be too long now, providing I DO get The Way the Sky Curves revised this month. A fresh set of eyes on that would be awesome!
      You’ll hit the goal next time, don’t worry. NaNo isn’t that far away! Funnily, Camp NaNo has made me enthusiastic about that again… weird huh? The novel I plan on writing is already half formed in my brain, so it should be an awesome month.

  2. Nice work on nailing your target, that’s a hyooooge number of words for a month. Take a bow, and grab a beer ๐Ÿ™‚

    GO YOU!

    Sorry I haven’t been here to tip my hat earlier, it’s been a busy few days for me as well.

    1. It seems like it! What happened to the ability to comment on your blog? You’re forcing me to email you, you realize this right? lol Thanks for the grats! 20K in a month was good, gonna try for 50K in November though.
