Starting Over – Camp NaNoWriMo

I’ve finally decided that it is best for me to start over on Camp NaNoWriMo. The Forsaken War, will wait for another time, perhaps. However, I will introduce to you, something that’s in Nothing to Lose, but not quite it…..

That’s right! It is, of course, the world-building aspect of Nothing to Lose. The universe of Nothing to Lose needs to be fleshed out before I work on the actual main series first. I know I might’ve said I wanted to take a break from Nothing to Lose a month or so back, but things, new things, have popped up, giving me the motivation to keep writing without burning out on it.

I do have to apologise, however, to those who really wanted to read The Forsaken War. I feel like I’ve disappointed you, but hopefully this apology will suffice.

Alright, time for me to get some rest.

Update – Camp NaNoWriMo

I’m not sure where to go with The Forsaken War, to be quite honest. Everything’s been piled onto me, I’m still not able to get more written, and I feel blocked on The Forsaken War. There’s just….I can’t finish a certain paragraph off, because everything’s just dried my creative juices, and I feel like I’m sinking into Nothing to Lose worldbuilding once more.

So, until I can kick myself to go write more, I won’t be sure if I’m going to finish Camp NaNo or not.

Camp NaNoWriMo: Week Progress

I am extremely sorry about not being able to write anything since the 3rd of July! This week has been a long one. I have family visiting, and well, I’ve been so busy cleaning and spending time with the visiting family I haven’t had the energy to keep writing more.

Day 2: Wrote, but forgot to put it into the word count meter on Camp NaNoWriMo site.

Day 3: Word count updated! 3,313 words out of 80k words

Day 4: Had the first lot of the family come to see us. Did a little bit of writing, did not update the word count. That day also had a downfall as I saw a brawl go violently wrong. (No one died.) Word count remained at 3,313 words.

Day 5: No writing done this day. The second lot of the family came to see us, and set up the caravan. Word count remained at 3,313 words.

Day 6: I wanted to do some writing today, but because the younger cousins (one 5, other 7) were around, and that The Forsaken War contains quite a bit of crude language, I didn’t write at all in front of them. The dinner that night was very good, and I felt too exhausted that night to do some writing. Word count remained at 3,313 words.

Day 7: Both lots of the family that came up here and I went fish feeding! No writing done that day, alas. The family then are now on a trip to a national park for 4 days. Word count remained at 3,313 words.

Day 8: We’re here! I finally updated the word count. I’m now at 3,600 out of 80,000 words! I’ll do more when I write some more, and it will be in it’s separate post from this.

 

I hope you all have had a good time! I hope you’ve all been writing like crazy! And without further ado, I must wish you all luck!

Camp NaNoWriMo: Day 1

 

Hello my readers! It is currently Day 2 here, of Camp NaNoWriMo, but I’ve not written anything today just yet. However, I will like to mention an update!

Firstly, I’ve added a widget to my blog. Can you see it?

Yes, it looks like this!

Thanks to a WordPress user whose post I saw on how to put it into a WordPress blog, I have added a word count tracker! Mainly, a NaNoWriMo tracker.

So, if you are keen to find out my progress on The Forsaken War with words, check there! Or, if you’re on mobile quite frequently like me, you can wait until I post up an update of Camp NaNo here!

Secondly, as seen above, I’ve written 2,942 out of 80,000 words! I actually beat the average word count I should have every day on the first day! WOO! Today, however, I’ve been rather busy, I slept in til 11am (oops), then cleaned for the afternoon, and now it is the afternoon, time for me to start a little more writing, eh?

I’ll keep you all updated! Maybe you’ll see chapters soon….soon..? Hehe.
