letter from camp - 4/20/13

I'm a classy dame, which means I've selected only the finest of
chocolate for this s'more I'm a'makin' this month. It's gonna be delish.

Dear friends,

It's 4/20, y'all, and you know what that means... That's right, only 10 more days of Camp NaNoWriMo! (Hahahaha... oh puns...)

If you read my earlier posts this week then you'll know I had a fantastic time in Colorado visiting one of my friends. Even though my Monday night flight home was canceled, and my weekend jaunt became more stressful, I still found ample time to write.

I'm currently working on two stories that are contributing to my word count. One is a novel and the other is a 10,000-word novelette. You can read my post about it (here), but basically while I was in Colorado I was uber inspired to write this story that I needed to work on this summer, and I decided to put it to paper while it was still fresh in my mind.

I'm loving this story and have had so much fun writing it. I'm finding that my success with this story is inspiring me to work on other stories as well, which is great.

I've managed to stay far enough ahead that I can take off one or two days of writing each week. Which was nice. Because last night, after an emotionally draining week, it was nice to take an evening off and relax knowing my story would still be here when I opened the document next.

As of today I have 26,061 -- which means I need to write 600 words, today, to stay on track. That's a good place to be.
