The Camp NaNoWiMo started on July 1 and here is what I did during this week –
WORD COUNT- 1708
MY DAY- My day started good as I was excited for writing for the first day of NaNoWriMo. I started writing thinking it was too easy to write 5000 words a day but when I actually started writing, I knew it is not that easy. Hah, I picked up my speed and wrote.
WORD COUNT- 1127
MY DAY- My day went kind of lazily. I made a water colour painting for the World Water Colour Month and the rest of the time I just read. Also I received The Night Circus! Yay! And after the thousands of good reviews I read about it I’m very excited to read it. But not too many expectations; it ruins the book, right?
WORD COUNT- 1199
MY DAY- It was a Sunday and I decided to write more because practically I’ll be with the laptop the whole day. But my plans failed badly and in the evening I decided to make up and wrote 1127 words. Pretty great for something written in such a short period of time. I wish I had written from the morning but I was too lazy.
WORD COUNT- 406
MY DAY- I painted during the day, did some studying (even though I’m on a holiday) and slept my heart’s desire and in the evening I started writing but after an hour of watching TV and writing simultaneously I preferred the TV and stopped writing. On an average I have to write 12500 a week and unfortunately in this week I wrote 4440 words. It means I have to write 8060 words more in just 3 days. Can I achieve it? I think so. Let’s see.
WORD COUNT- 285
MY DAY – After about 4 days I’m starting to get bored. Partly because I don’t have a good story and I don’t know what to do with it and partly because I can’t seem to write with a deadline. I have been completing the Water colour paintings for posting every day and that seems a bit of a work for me. the rest of the time I read and study for some time.
WORD COUNT – 0
MY DAY- I didn’t write anything. I thought of writing something in the evening but canceled it too. I think I’m not ready for Camp NaNoWriMo. I have been meaning to take part in the November NaNoWriMo and I guess I’ll plan ahead of time and try then.
WORD COUNT – 0
My day – After a day with no word count, I’m sadly abandoning this project. I’ll write whenever I feel like it and I’ll complete this book but for now I don’t think I can complete this. But I’m happy about the fact that I wrote some 4700+ words in four days and I’ll do some more later.
Unfortunately, I have left Camp NaNoWriMO. I think I better sharpen my writing skills with other forms of writing like some short stories, essays or articles. But right now I don’t think I’ll do something productive with my time taking part this time.
I know it’s a challenge to just write but what’s the point in investing so much time and writing and then thinking what I have written is not good enough for a novel.
But next I promise to write something useful and worth my time.
