Hi everyone,

CampNaNoWriMo is now well into its second week and I’ve reached 8545 words written so far in April. Yesterday, I checked my full novel word count and I saw that I had reached 70K words in total.

Not bad, right?

I’m still in the chapters pre-THEBIGBATTLETM which makes me believe that this first draft won’t be finished when CampNaNo finishes. I should have given myself a bigger word count to make sure I finish, but to be honest I don’t think I would have managed to write more. At least I’m happy because I like were this story is going and by the end of April I will definitely have started on THEBIGBATTLETM and I hope that I will continue it in May.

How is everyone doing? I’m a bit underwhelmed by CampNaNo compared to the big NaNo if I’m totally honest. The cabin system is pretty cool, I like having a forum to discuss writing, but there isn’t much interaction otherwise which is a shame. I guess it’s just because there’s less participation than in November. However, I’ve received a lot of encouragements via Twitter, so thanks everyone. Keep them coming!
