I have been taking part in the Camp NaNoWriMo 2021 exercises during this year where the target or rather the goal is to write at least 50000 words for a book in a period of one month. This can be used as a guideline for not only books, but other types of writing projects such as fan fiction stories and even journals!
Here is more information on how to enter the process. And it’s all free, unless you want to donate a little something here and there: What is Camp NaNoWriMo?
I started with this process last year during the October 2020 Camp. Not that I wasn’t writing before. I was totally so on daily basis! But ever since starting following up on my writing on the site, the Dashboard for my project, I find that my daily word count has gone up exponentially. Writing around 2500 words per day, sometimes even more, is not hard at all! Even if it is only for my own bookkeeping, this has been a great way to encourage myself to create more. Plus to actually complete the books I have started. Even today, I just finished another book in less than thirty days!
So now, after having so many drafts in my to-do folder, I am starting the arduous process of editing them and hopefully by the end of this year, I will have several books published as I have three series going on with fourteen books in between them written as first draft. Keep you fingers crossed for me will ya, because I sure am!
Today is the final day of CampNaNoWriMo2021. My total word count so far is 60,435 of the target of 50,000 words, so I not only achieved my goal, but exceeded it! Go me, yay!
Well that is the good news. The other news is that I still have some effort to complete the book, which will be the seventh/eight depending on the editing in the series of “Perfection” which is my upon coming sci-fi book series. So, thus the final leg of book begins and I, will be typing away through the ever lightening nights 😉
This has been a busy month of writing to say the least but also there was a great incentive to do so once again with the gang at NaNoWriMo.org foundation and those writers taking part in this challenge feeling my pain or fun or what ever the sensation might be, to be on top of things and to achieve the allotted timeframes.
If you haven’t already, then go and check out what is going on at the NaNoWriMo site as there are all kinds of information for writers and also these cool camps to participate in, find other writers and finally start working on that novel you had planned!
Welcome to my page of books, stories, poetry and yes, even a podcast or few (which is on the menu for later). There is sci-fi, action, crime investigation, romance, sometimes explicit, often times general kind of themes and well, some odd stuff too. But, all the stories of mine feature strong women/women types in them, always.
Follow the various links to find what best suits you and hey if you have any questions, just drop me a line in an email or simply follow my social media feeds and ping me there, they are all listed on the side bar of the pages here. I will post my latest stuff here on the site about the books and stories and what have yous, and also on the social media platforms.
So, take a look around, maybe even wander off to my other site Rantings of a Third Kind, with lots of poetry, short stories and pix with the poems from my home town and my worldly travels as well, varying from the picture perfect panorama to the more abstract kind and the poems to go with them or visa versa!
Oh, and I need to mention my fan fiction of various shows I love on A03 (Archive of Our Own) and Fanfiction.net. So go, peruse already!
And hey, if you liked what you saw here, why not go and tell a friend or few too?!
