We’re already two weeks into April, into another Camp NaNoWriMo session, if you can believe it. On Easter, April 12th, I was proud of myself for writing every single day. Normally, I get ahead and skip a day or two, but I’ve kept up the routine. I thought I had been writing every day for about seven or eight days before I realized we’re farther along in the month than I thought.
Week two of Camp went well. Honestly, the week flew by for me. I stayed productive and on the routine with my writing. Normally, week two is a bit of a slump for me. My mind is tired from so much writing and it’s hard for me to get any words down during the second week.
It wasn’t like that this time. I’m not sure why. Maybe the routine is working for me. Maybe it’s because I haven’t written in such a long time. Maybe it’s just that it feels good to get back into writing my mystery. I’m not sure. I’m not complaining though.
Something I try to do every NaNo session (that almost never happens) is write at least 4,000 words on Saturdays. My daily goal is 2,000 words and I have more time on Saturdays than any other day of the week, so I try to double it. It allows me to get even further ahead and is an extra boost. I didn’t do it the first Saturday of this month. I have no other reason other than I forget. I’m pretty sure I wrote my 2,000 words and then played Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the rest of the day.
I was able to do it this past Saturday though, which was good. The story is coming out great so far. I’m sure I’ll think differently about it when I start editing, but I won’t knock it for now.
