Hey guuuuuys! How are you all doing?

You can check out my week 1 update here and week 2 update here.

So it’s obvious now what I want to say, I won Camp NaNoWriMo guys! 😀 I can’t be any happier! I seriously feel so good. I knew I was going to have a super busy day today, so yesterday night, precisely after 12, (so it can be kinda counted as today!) around 3 am I started writing and I finished at 5 in the morning! (My mind works super fast after 12!) Suddenly all the words were flowing and I couldn’t stop writing and that ultimately led me to cross my Camp goal!

My original goal was 15k, but after reaching that goal, I increased it to 25k. In July, I started a new course, had 6 hours of class in the weekends, taught my (freaking monkey) students, read quite a few books and wasted some unnecessary time. With all of these alongside with me, I think I did good for a first timer! Though my project is only 50% complete, I plan to continue writing in August and finish my firstest first draft!

But seriously, participating in Camp NaNoWriMo was the best decision ever! I had so much fun, my camp buddies were pretty awesome and we had a blast! And Camp seriously helped my motivation to keep writing! with We also have a group in Quip where we have sprint charts and stuff, so I guess I’ll be lurking around there as well in August. Overall, I had a great experience, I’ll be definitely participating in November, although I’m not quite sure about it but I’ll give it a go! Can’t wait for another Camp next year!


So guys, did you participate in Camp NaNoWriMo? Did you succeed in reaching your goal? How was your overall experience?

Week 2- Camp NaNoWriMo Update! And plans for Week 3!

Hey guys! How are you all doing this week?

This post is going to be pretty short as I’ll give a quick update about how I’m faring in Camp NaNoWriMo so far. To read about my previous week’s update and my novel’s blurb (well… kind of), you can click here.

So as I told you guys earlier, week 1 was pretty good for me. I have already reached my minimal goal of 15K. So I’ve updated my goal to 25K now. It’s not much but I’m willing to push myself further.

Also, previously I was writing from a single POV though a second POV was thrown in between at regular intervals. But then I noticed that it was kind of becoming monotonous plus I’ve seen most of the NA novels have alternating point of views. I understood that why more deeply. Therefore I made a few changes which actually helped me. I was stuck but due to this change I was successful in outlining most of my chapters yesterday night. Only a few are left! 😀

But this week’s progress has been slow as I couldn’t write these past 3 days as I’ve been quite sick but I’m feeling better now so I’m going to get back to writing today.

My plans for week 3 is…. to write of course! But progress is going to be slow as well because I have a big test this upcoming Friday and I’ve got a loooot of studying to do but I have got the last week free, so I mostly plan to catch up on that week but I’m going to try my best and continue writing as much as possible this week!


Are you participating in Camp NaNoWriMo this month? How’s your writing coming along? Have you face any difficulties along the way? If yes, then how have you overcome it?
