Fixing the Draft

Hello, readers! Happy Friday! Let me tell you, it’s been one of those weeks where you swear there is someone else throwing extra days into your week. However, we are finally here.

This Friday also brings a new challenge. It’s the first day of Camp Nano, which means I’ve dug in my heels to get my work done. True to camp fashion I’ve chosen not to start a new project. After finding the fact I like the deep pov so much better for my story, I settled on that.

I will be spending Camp Nano reworking this draft of my horror novel. It isn’t quite as exciting as working on a new project, but I have loved seeing how much more evolved this book has grown.

For those of you that don’t know what Camp Nano is, it is a program that you issue your own challenge to yourself on. You are vowing to finish so many words during July. The program takes your challenge and breaks it down into daily goals for you to hit to reach your target.

I love NaNoWriMo in November and while I have participated in a good share of Camp Nano’s I haven’t truly won. At least not on a scale that I would consider a win. This is the month that I will be working hard to succeed.

My overall goal for this project is 65,000 words. That broken down into daily goals sits at 2,097 words a day.

Thanks to The Hubby Man having to work overtime at 1 this morning. I had almost hit my daily goal by 2 in the morning. However, I grew tired quickly and had to sleep. After all was said and done, I hit my goal at 11 this afternoon. Anything that I complete for the rest of the day is icing on the cake.



Day one is complete. Here is to keeping up on my daily goals this time around.

Remember, L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
