Camp NaNoWriMo Check In!

Hey, we’ve finished our first full week of #CampNaNoWriMo and if you’ve followed me on Twitter, then you know I had a GREAT week. I took a minute to add up the words I wrote this week, and here’s where we are.

At the beginning of the week, I had written three full chapters and one scene from Chapter 4. Today, I finished Chapter 10.  I’ve written seven chapters, around 90 pages, and 31,702 words JUST THIS WEEK. Y’all, I cannot even tell you how excited I am by this program. I’ve written a chapter a day in less than two hours. This isn’t even a huge chunk of my overall day , so I should be able to maintain the pace most of the month.

I’ve actually almost gotten about halfway through the first book, probably a little more. Pieces of the second book are already written, they just have to be revised to fit the revised narrative. What I wrote this week, I thought would be the hardest stuff to write, but once I got going–I just GOT GOING.

I’ve got some even better news — I anticipate being able to post Bittersweet sometime this week, so I can start updates again. The last chapter I posted was Chapter 22, so we have about nine chapters left. This should take us through the summer and a bit into the fall. Hopefully, I’ll be able to bring you Mad World in October or November.

I can’t believe my muse finally decided to stop screwing around. This is so much better than I did even last year during NaNoWriMo in July and November. I’ll keep y’all updated. Thanks for your patience!


  • Thake your time.
