Camp: Week Three

camp nanowrimo week three update rachel poli

There’s only about one week left… This month is flying by.

Here’s an update of my third week of Camp NaNoWriMo and my novel, The Lost Girl.

The Ups

 

I’m still very much into my story. I think it’s going really well. I’m already coming up with editing ideas for it, but I’m sticking to just writing for now. I think it will be a pretty decent first draft when it’s all done.

I have less than 10,000 more words to write to hit my 50,000-word goal for Camp. Though I think the novel is going to turn out a lot longer than that. I’m just now getting to the “climax” of the story. I don’t know whether it’s a little late or not, but I guess we’ll figure that one out when the first draft is done.

The Downs

I think Grace’s character (and Peter’s, actually) is going to need some spiffing-up. Both of their personalities switch back and forth making them both seem like each of them are two different characters within themselves, if that makes any sense.

Though like I said, I’m just going to keep writing. Maybe it will work itself out. If not, that’s what editing is for later.

  1. “Both of their personalities switch back and forth making them both seem like each of them are two different characters within themselves, if that makes any sense.”

    Maybe they’re both bipolar? 😉

    Seriously, though, feel free to send me a portion of what you’ve written, preferably a specific example of where you feel your characters are switching back and forth. I’d be glad to give it a read and offer my thoughts. You can find my email on the Contact page of my blog.

    1. Thanks, that’s helpful!
      Though I think for now I’m just going to keep writing and see how it plays out. I think the characters are kind of developing without me showing the scenes where things click for them, if that makes sense. But I’ll keep your offer in mind. Thanks. 🙂

Let me know what you think!
