Camp NaNoWriMo Aug '12: Day Six


Day: Six

Where I should be: 9996

Where I actually am:
25, 937 (half way there, baby!)

Word count for today:
5937

Favourite line from today's writing:
Damn them all, I wasn't going to stop seeing him before we'd even given our relationship a chance. I'd just have to take the risk.

Experiences of the Day: Today, I did one of my favourite writing related things, word wars. For those of you who don't know what word wars is, it's when you and a group of friends compete to see who can write the most in a set period of time. KyraLennon (I don't know how she managed to fit in writing in between her Game On blog tour) and I did three thirty minute sessions and got at least 1000 words each time. Having someone to compete against really motivates me, and knowing I can't go check FaceBook because Kyra might beat me keeps me focused.

    1. Thank you. :)

      How many words are you on? I just popped over to your blog, and you seem a lot like me, a plotster. Too much plotting and the creativity goes, but not enough and you're lost and wondering free. Hope the chance of pace, and a bit more freedom works for you. :)

    1. I don't think you're lazy, I'm just slightly obsessive. ;)
