Camp NaNoWriMo: Day 23

Day: Twenty-three

Where I should be: 38, 318

Where I actually am:
49, 330 (SO close!)

Word count for today:

Favourite line from today's writing:
While I loved seeing the fruits of my efforts when two people got together sometimes being Cupid was just not cool. - the bolded part may very well become my tagline/ basis for my title. I love when sudden inspiration like that hits.

Experiences of the Day: Amazing myself that I can write less then 1k all day, and then it gets to the evening and I can knock out a couple of thousand words. I guess it's when inspiration hits. I was in a scene, that'll lead to another bigger and important scene, and the words just flowed out of me. I love it when that happens.

How is everyone else fairing? Let me know how you're getting on.


  1. GAH, so very close to the end - I love it! :D

  2. Wow, less than seven hundred words - you got it!

  3. Holy cow. Is it really already the 23 day of August? Crazy.

    And look at you! Tomorrow is the day :)

    1. Hopefully. I'm word warring with Kyra later, so that should boost my word count! :D

  4. I can't believe how far ahead you are! This proves I would be very rubbish at this kind of challenge. Will the story stop at 50k, or are you writing until the end of the month?

    1. Thanks! :D I think everyone is different with this type of thing, but as long as you're getting 50k it's all good. :D Yes, the story will continue. I think I'm about halfway done, though really I don't wanna go much over 90k.

  5. Clare, you've done an outstanding job with Camp NaNo! Way to go! You've been such an inspiration for me throughout the month; I want you to know that. I'm positive you'll have finished up by today. :))

    Me, I'll be writing up until the last second. O_O But, that's okay. I haven't been able to turn off the pesky inner editor while I write, so she's constantly hounding me. This challenge has helped though. It's kept me accountable for at least trying to finish with 50k. I know I'll be darned close once the clock strikes 12 on the 31st.

    I'm very proud of you. I salute you! ^o^

    1. Thank you so much Candy. Your encouragement, and our chats have really inspired me and helped me carry on too, so I'm glad to hear I've been able to do the same for you. :D

      Oh, I'll be writing up until the 31st too, I want to get the first draft complete. :D

      Good luck with your writing, I'm sure by the end of the month you'll finish with 50k. I can tell you've been working really hard on this, and everything you've told me about the story so far sounds fantastic.

      My pesky inner editor is peeking through, I have a bunch on notes in the margin of things I need to work on.

      Thanks again, that really means a lot to me! ^_^


Thank you for taking the time to read this entry, and comment. I really appreciate it.
