I completed my first Camp NaNo!
277 printed pages have been scribbled through with different colored pens for each chapter and hopefully I have discovered ever grammatical error – DOUBT IT – but I finished. And I cannot tell how happy I am to finally be back to using Word. I mean, reading printed out sheets is fun in all, but I miss typing. And writing, and getting lost, and typing so fast that I think I’m disturbing everyone in the computer lab with my TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP – I’ve missed that! And the way the keys feel under your fingers cause you’re pressing a lot of buttons and I’m the type of person that always has to press the button. It’s so good to be back! And I’ve missed writing, if I haven’t mentioned that before.
I have to say, I am really glad I participated this month. Camp has taught me that in order for me to finish going through my entire manuscript, I need a deadline, a red target with percentages on it to show my progress to the bullseye in the middle, a bar graph with a line running through it, and a message that reads how many days are left of the month, which updates every day!
So, now what? Well, since you asked:) I will be applying all the changes I made. Not sure how long that will take since I need to rewrite two chapters because of POV conflictions. One chapter near the end will be taken out and placed in Book 2. And one or two chapters may be cut – ow my heart.
MAYBE. I haven’t decided.
I really don’t want to cut them, but a part of me tells me that they aren’t needed.
But I love the chapters. I must keep them.
Anyway, are you interested in seeing what 36 chapters look like when arranged in a circle? Then look no further! Except down!
Isn’t it beautiful? And somewhat satisfying? Please tell me I’m not the only one who finds peace and comfort in this . . .
I thought so . . . 😦 But that’s okay! If you didn’t enjoy those photos, then here’s one of me and my baby!
Isn’t it beautiful? Okay, I’ll stop.
Has anyone else completed their goal? If you have, here’s a gif just for you!
If you haven’t yet, YOU CAN DO IT! I BELIVE YOU CAN AND YOU WILL COMPLETE YOUR GOAL! JUST 4 DAYS LEFT! NO PRESSURE!
