Oops, I was supposed to pick a goal before today, wasn’t I? July really snuck up on me this year with the new grandson, hurt cats, and lots of projects to get done. Not to mention still feeling constantly fatigued but trying to get the yard fixed up despite it. No rest for the weary.
I’m probably not in any condition to do NaNo right now, but since I failed in April, I’m going to try again. And probably fail again. Oh well. Can’t succeed if you don’t first try. Amirite?
So I’m going back to my goal from April: get caught up on Uncalled For Actions.
Back in April, my goal was to finish all of my sentences for February, March, and April before the end of the month. Well, I’m sad to say, despite all of that work, and only needing six more days at the end of April, I still haven’t finished those April sentences.
I have 34 left for April 30. Then I decided to take May off because I was burnt out and wanted to work on stuff for the baby. But because I never caught up with April, I also haven’t done any of the June sentences. So I’m way behind again. I could just call June a loss and start with one sentences today, but I’m going to try and get this done.
So the goal for July Camp is 1,925 sentences. 34 for April, 465 for June, and 1,426 for July. That will finish chapters 18 – 24. It comes out to 63 sentences per day which is slightly less than for April Camp.
That is if the story is still going. Based on where I am and what little I’ve plotted in my head, I should have plenty left to write. This story could be going on forever.
And don’t forget, if you’re participating in Camp NaNo or just want some fun motivation with your writing, check out 4thwords.com.
It’s a great writing site set up like an RPG game where you are a character fighting monsters with your wordcounts. During NaNo events, we run month-long special events with unique monsters, quests, and prizes that are only available for that event. So now is the perfect time to check out the site.
There’s a 30-day free trial (perfect for doing NaNo), and after that, it’s $4.99/month. A good deal if you ask me. I’ve been a member since December 2015, and my writing and productivity have both increased greatly. I owe my 911-day streak of writing to 4tw. That’s 2 1/2 years or writing every day.
The site also has a forum filled with great writers of all genres and experiences. From the newbie fanfic writer to professional authors that actually make money (it’s a thing). I’m a mod there (@justanotherjen) so I’ll be around.
If you decide to check it out, use this referral code: WVBIY23608 that way if you decide to stick around and buy a subscription, we both get extra c-crystals (currency in the game used to by subscription time and cool goodies for your forum avatar).
