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. 😉
Anyway, I’m not in the mood to do an ordinary recap today and they take forever to do, and Camp Nano started today, so… I’m just going to write down some of the good things that happened this month. *nods*
~ trying to learn a new English Country Dance with four girls ages ten and under and people painting our house and staring at us – yup that was fun~
~starting bullet journaling~
~more dancing with friends~
~watching about a million zillion bullet journaling videos~
~reading and writing practically nothing~
~plotting/outlining for camp nano~
~fun with the youth group (until we got sick and couldn’t do anything)~
~being pushed down the driveway in an old cart made with skate wheels~
~running outside in the middle of a rainstorm just because we could and coming in cold and soaking wet~
Well, folks, that’s all I’ve got. This month blogging may be a bit sporadic due to Camp Nano (!!!) (I’m panicking here!!), so please bear with me. Hopefully I’ll be posting some Nano updates throughout the month, and also I have at least one post prewritten in case of emergency. 😉 Also, I’m really hoping to just enjoy the remainder of summer while it’s still here.
Glad you guys are getting better!
You said that you are plotting/outlining your story for the camp. Do you usually outline your stories before you write them? Do you do it how K. M. Weiland does?
Thanks! Yes, I usually do outline, but not like K.M. Weiland. My outlines are usually very short (my Nano outline was two pages) and just a summary of key events in the story, along with notes for things I need to remember. Some things, though, I discover as I write the story. I like being surprised 🙂 That would be a good topic for a blog post!
I haven’t ever outlined before, but I am trying character sketches for the first time. My problem is that I generally just want to jump right into the first draft! So I’m kinda writing the first draft and the character sketches for my story at the same time. Probably not the wisest thing for me to do, but Its what I’m doing.
I’ve done that before! It’s easier to just start sometimes. I love character sketches, they’re my favorite part of outlining! ?
Goodness, I’m sorry you’ve been sick! Glad to hear you’re feeling better. Good luck with NaNo!!
Thank you! ❤
