April CampNaNo2020 Day 5 Recap

Yesterday was a very successful day in drafting Obscure Origin. I wrote 2,384 words. Yes, you read that correctly. Me, the person who barely writes 1k a day most of the time, wrote over 2k thanks to 2 writing sprint live streams (one at 12:30 am—I only lasted an hour, if you were wondering, and 2-hour-long one at 11:30 am). I finished the day only 1,222 words away from reaching the 5,000-word mark—my projected target for the day given I’ve set a goal of 30,000 words for April (aka 1k a day)—but I was just too tired to reach it. I hope to reach it tomorrow, and I’ll be trying every day from here on out to catch up to the linear progress of 1k/day now that I’m barely more than a “day” behind.

I have finished the first four chapters and started the fifth. Everything is much shorter than I planned, so I know that when it’s time for revisions, I’ll have to beef up a lot. As it stands now, however, I’m very satisfied with what I’ve written and am still optimistic about this Camp NaNo (even if I don’t meet the 30k goal by April 30th).

When I’m feeling down, I just remind myself that I’m doing this while taking 5 university classes that are barreling very quickly towards the end of the semester (which means final papers, projects, and exams—a lot of work).
