June Update

June is fast becoming a fleeting memory. Seriously, it just whizzed by. However, my family and I did have a lovely mini break at a holiday park, so thumbs up to June.

Reading

I have been in a reading slump of late, so I chose to read non fiction in June.

I read 3 short books on frugal living/ cooking. I did a 3 in 1 book review that you can find here.

Writing

I’ve still been plodding along with Zombies and Budgie Smugglers. Now that I have signed up for July’s CampNaNo, I know I should be finished (or very close to) by August. CampNaNo is great at motivating me.

Blogging

The Character Interview series came to an end on Wednesday. I have been spending the last 2 weeks, writing and scheduling my next series that will start on July 17th. There will be more on that series in an upcoming post.

What’s Next?

Like I said, I’m doing CampNaNo in July. 9k words is my goal. If things go well, there may be a cover and blurb reveal soon.

I hope to read at least 1 novel during July and a couple more non fiction books. I am behind on my Goodreads challenge, and I can’t stand it.


Stay tuned for my new blog series update.

CampNaNo

CampNaNo Winner!

I did it! I hit my 6k word target with time to spare. I found the process truly eye opening. I used to think that if I didn’t have time to sit and write 1k words, I would wait until I did as there was no point just typing a few hundred.

How wrong I was!

I wrote approximately 200 words a day, and most days that was all I had time for, but those 200 words a day added up to 6k in the month!!! If I had waited for a time where I could crack out at least 1k words, I would not have 6k written. It may not be much to prolific writers, but with mum duties and adulting, this was perfect for me and I plan to continue this way.

Good luck to those still plowing on with CampNaNo, and congrats to those who have hit their targets already.

I shall be back for July’s CampNaNo with bells on.

CampNaNo

CampNaNo Update #3

I am two days late posting this because it has just been one of those bank holiday weekends. I didn’t have time to write anything, let alone post blog posts. My littlest had a temperature and my eldest needed entertaining. Adulting and parenting took priority.

That being said, I still hit my targets. Small and manageable is the way forward for me, and the day I did a little extra covered me for Sunday’s absence. I’m on my way to 6k words. As it is a novella, 6k words is a huge chunk and a lot of story happens within those words. It’s great knowing a little input is wielding big results.

My word count for this week is:

1,315 words

That’s a total of:

4,613 words


Remember today is a double blog post day. My teaser Tuesday post will go live shortly.
