Day Three

27 More Days….

SnackYou see that picture up there? Yes, that is s’mores. Two s’mores! With coffee in a Tinkerbell mug! I know what you’re thinking: “coffee with s’mores? Is she for real…?” Well, my friends, this is why everyone tells me that they cannot wait until I get pregnant.

This is what I ate earlier while I was writing. I went to school, wrote, went to work, and then wrote some more. It was a productive day, I think.

Today I wrote a total of 4,434 words. Saving Each Other and my Camp NaNo stats are now up to 13,419 words. According to the stats, I am going to finish on April 12 at the rate I am going. Of course, I wrote over 6,000 words on the first day and I kind of want to break that record. I wrote 20k in two days about a week ago, I want to see if I can do that again.

Oh, and get this: you know how I’m trying to write 365,000 words by the end of 2013? That means I have to write 1,000 words a day. I was way behind in that goal because I forgot about it, I didn’t have time, whatever you want my excuse to be. Right now I should have about 93,000 words because 31 days (January) plus 28 days (February) plus 31 days (March) plus 3 days (April so far) equals to 93. Scroll down and look how many words I have right now. Yep, that’s right. I win. 😀 Granted, I still have about eight months to go, but…we can gloat for now.

I have also been thinking more and more about that vlog portion of Spilled Ink. I’m going to get started on it soon. I just have to figure out a few things. When I’m going to do it, how often I’m going to do it, how I’m going to do it, etc. However, it should hopefully be coming soon. I plan on having a lot of fun with a vlog.

I don’t think I really have anything else to say right now. Basically tomorrow is another day and I hope to get lots of stuff done. If you’re doing Camp, comment with your word count! 🙂

  1. I’d love to see a vlog! I’ve been watching so many different vlogs lately. One about writing would be great to watch.

    Current word count: 6702, just on target for day 4. 🙂

    • I just have to teach myself how to edit lol. And good job with your word count! Doesn’t it feel good to be right on track? 🙂

  2. I’m being a NaNo rebel this camp with a goal of only 25K. My stretch goal is to hit 1k per day, reaching 30K and as of yesterday, I am at 3,556, so a tiny bit ahead 🙂 Per current stats, I should finish by the 22nd, but I plan to write all month since there’s a lot more than 25K left for my story.

  3. Hi Rachel,

    Hey, thanks for the ‘like’ on my blog… it’s nice to ‘meet’ you!

    Way to go on the word count; I’m at 13,461 words at the moment, and have planned a big day tomorrow. Kids at school, husband at work, afternoon off. Yep, I hope to get some serious work done on my novel.

    Good luck with the writing!

    • That’s awesome! I hope you get a lot done. I have work 11-6, but school was cancelled for the morning so I plan on getting up early to work because I’m busy tomorrow night as well!
