letter from camp - 7/10/11
It's Day 10 here at Camp NaNoWriMo and I'm still plugging away, but finding it tough.
I confess I haven't written a word on my novel since Thursday, which means I have two days away from it. I'm also sitting at about 7,000 words, which is about halfway to where I need to be.
It is not a lack of motivation that has me falling short of the goal. Like I've mentioned previously, I seem to have my mind in a millions places, and I am dabbling at various projects. Going forward, I need to resolve to make more time every day to work on this book.
I am still confident I can reach my goal of 50,000 words by July 31. I was in a similar standing at the same time of the month in November, and I completed NaNoWriMo.
Right now it's about the numbers. If I can write 2,000 words every day for the rest of the month, I will finish. Knowing me, though, that's more likely to be a daily average, because some days I am more prolific than others.
I look forward to giving a better report next week and appreciate any advice or tips!
