Camp NaNoWriMo- Day 5

Hello everyone! It’s day 5 of Camp NaNoWriMo. Yesterday was independence Day in the states and today is my town’s celebration.

I hope that you’re all having a wonderful day, whether or not you’ve decided to take the day off from writing. Me, I am going to use as much of today as I can to get stuff done! I haven’t written anything yet today (I know, shame on me) but I am proud to say that I am already a quarter of my way to my initial goal of 10k words for the month.

Yes I know, 10k doesn’t seem like a lot, but in previous Camp NaNoWriMos I’ve set my goals too high and didn’t meet them. Back in March I wrote a blog post about Setting Managable Writing Goals. This is still important for me to remember, as when I set my goals too high (especially during Summer months when I am beyond busy) I don’t do well at all.

So this week I’ve been pretty darn productive. I’ve read, revised, and edited Chapter 5 of TGGC before sending it off to my lovely critique partners. Today I plan on getting a start on Chapter 6 and by the end of tomorrow I’m hoping to have it at least half way done.
