Ten Thousand Words

I haven’t missed a day of blogging in a long time. I had a post set up for today, though I didn’t write it.

It’s about 9:30 at night for me as I write this and my posts for the day goes up at midnight the day of.

Kris had the day off from work today, so we decided to give ourselves a 10k-writing day for Camp NaNoWriMo. Not only was I writing 10,000 words for Crossroads, but I was also giving Sunday Morning one final proofread before finally formatting the book and getting it up and ready to publish.

I have been on the computer writing and editing since 6:30 this morning. I took a shower and dinner break and that’s it. Poor Lilah (my laptop, not the character) has been on for 15 straight hours.

She definitely needs a break and so do I.

I was just about to get off when I realized I didn’t publish today’s blog post.

Normally, I don’t like to post just for the sake of posting. However, because I haven’t missed a day in forever, my OCD was flipping out.

So, here’s today’s post nine and a half hours late. Written in an exhausted tone because my fingers are tired. My butt hurts. My brain is mush.

I feel good though, in an odd way. I was super productive.

I hope you all had a lovely day. I’m beat.

Have you done a 10K day before? How’s Camp NaNoWriMo going for you? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below and if you enjoyed this post, please share it around!

    • Lol, thanks! I ended up with 10,330 words… something I meant to add in the post. I was too tired last night though, lol.

      Do you participate in Camp at all?

      • I don’t, but that may partially be because I thought it was an actual camp with outside and stuff up until it started. Now I’m not sure and might have to look into it more next year, haha!

        • Oh, lol. It’s just a laid-back version of NaNoWriMo. There’s another session of Camp in July, if you’re interested. Just head to campnanowrimo(.org). 🙂

    • No, not at all. I try to do 10k days once every NaNo session. My sister and I do it together and it’s a lot of fun and gives us a good day to hang out together. It was just extra yesterday because I was working on two manuscripts, which isn’t what I normally do.

  1. Those 10k days are rough. I’ve only done one or two in my years of writing. The best way to do them is to take frequent breaks. Other wise, you end up with some pretty bad carpal tunnel. 🙂

    • Oh, definitely. Breaks are needed. I have the days down pat at this point though since I try to do one every NaNo session. My wrists always tend to hurt me right before NaNo starts, which is weird… but I think they knows what’s coming, lol.
