Yesterday, I got back on the horse, as the saying goes. I didn’t do any writing in Obscure Origin until Kate Cavanaugh’s Patreon-exclusive write-in just like I predicted. Part of that was due to the amount of homework I had to do, but that was greatly impacted by my mental health taking an unexpected hit, which slowed down my productivity in both school and novel writing.
I only wrote 774 words, but I’m very happy with those words because I got to rewrite a scene that I’ve been wanting to for the past few days.
Yes, I know you’re not supposed to edit or revise as you write, but sometimes I go back because I already know I want to add more or change something important for continuity and I just do it. It hasn’t been so bad this month because going back was what I was doing in the last few days leading up to my Camp NaNo “win.”
I have multiple hard deadlines starting this Friday and even though I’ve gotten one out of the way, I really have to focus on school until I (virtually) graduate on May 19. I’ll still be blogging my Camp NaNo progress through the end of the month (technically May 1st since that’s when my April 30th recap will be posted), but afterward, this space may be a little bit more empty than it has been recently.
