    I won camp nano: one last update + things to come

    As you all can probably tell from the title, I WON CAMP NANOWRIMO!!!!! *screams* We are the champions, my friends… I won’t be doing a day-by-day update because 1), I don’t feel like it, and 2), I don’t feel like it. So I’ll just give you my lovely stats… I managed to stay on track and meet my goal almost every day, finishing with a total of 16,057. 57 words more than my goal, yay! ; ) Sadly, I’m… not… done. Because of my extreme ramblingness (yes, I just made that word up), I didn’t exactly finish. But I’m close! I’m so, so close to being done with my (positively…

    camp nano update // week three + an announcement

    Week Three of Camp Nano (and July) is over! Can y’all believe it? It’s crazy to me that July is almost over and we’ll be starting school again. I am not completely enthusiastic about that… I mean, summer! I’m not ready for it to be over. But when I see the new school books I can’t help but be a little bit excited. Anyhow, I’m here to bring you this week’s writing update, not to ramble on and on about summer. Saturday, July 15: This was kind of a crazy day because we had a birthday party and I had a blog post due… which didn’t get published until Sunday…

    camp nano update // week two

    I’m back, with another Nano update! Sorry this was a day late, but the weekend was busy. This week was fairly good for writing, and I upped my goal (again) to 16,000 words. My current word count is 6,786 words and according to the Nanowrimo website I’m right on track to finish by the end of July. Here’s my daily word counts. Saturday, July 8: 571 words. Sunday, July 9: 519 words. Monday, July 10: 838 words!!! The most words I’ve written in one day so far! ūüėÄ Tuesday, July 11: 540 words.¬†Went a bit over my word count goal, but it was harder¬†to write because it was Cow Day…

    camp nano update // week one

    Hello all! Today I’m bring you an update on my Camp Nano progress. It’s been interesting so far, and I was lucky enough to be invited to a great cabin. I actually am making progress on my Snow White retelling, so that’s good. I’m still sworn to secrecy by my ultra-secret writing organization (if I told you I’d have to lock you up) not sharing details about my retelling yet, so this may or may not be a dull post. My writing goal for the month is currently 14,000 words, although I keep changing it. Compulsively. It’s weird. I’ll probably change it to 15,000 after I finish writing this post.…

    June // featuring assorted memories

    June¬†was kind of a strange month.¬†I had a lot of plans, but some of them didn’t happen due to unforeseen illness – almost all month. And some of us still have it… So basically, we’ve hardly gone anywhere for three weeks. *sighs* I had a bunch of spare time at home¬†until I got sick, so I was extremely productive for two weeks or so, and then I didn’t quite feel like it. Luckily I’m feeling better now, and hopefully back to my normal, productive self. You should see my to-do-list for today. I ran out of room. ūüėČ Anyway, I’m not in the mood to do an ordinary recap today…

    I’m Doing Camp Nanowrimo

    I wasn’t planning on doing Camp¬†Nanowrimo. (If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically where you set a word count goal for yourself and try to meet it in one month. Mostly. Yup.) But then I heard about¬†the Five Poisoned¬†Apples writing contest¬†and since fairy tale retellings are like one of my favorite things ever,¬†I¬†came up with a brilliant* idea. So, I’ll be writing my first draft during Camp and hopefully editing the whole mess before December…¬†O_o *cue nervous laughter* *Brilliancy is in the eye of the beholder. The Association of Brilliant Authors (ABA) has not approved this statement. So, Jonathan at Fishing for Ideas had this idea to do…
