Camp NaNoWriMo July 2014: Day Two

Today got off to a rough start with writing. I didn't start writing until the afternoon and even then I only wrote for about twenty minutes before having to move on to other things. But then after my son went to sleep, I was able to start writing and I thought I'd never get on track when I finally put in a good word count and finished my first chapter! Progress! :)

Can't wait to get further in and to the "fun" parts. Romance, of course. ;) Oh, and all the other drama and excitement that will happen.

Here are my stats for today! :) Hope everyone had a great day, and for those of you participating in Camp NaNo, hope you made your word count goal today and surpassed it with flying colors. Keep up the great work! Don't give up! :)

Daily Goal: 646 words
Total Words: 1, 099
How many words over today? I went over my word count goal of 646 by 453 words. :) 

Week One Goal: 3, 876
How many more words until weekly goal is met? Only 929! That's exciting! Two days in and I'm already nearly to my first weeks goal, though it is a bit short due to this week only containing 6 days of July. But still! :P 
How many more words until monthly goal is met? 17, 053! Lower, and lower. 

Total words together: 2, 947! :)

Camp NaNoWriMo July 2014: Day One

I know most of you have heard of, and maybe even participated in, National Novel Writing Month, a.k.a. NaNoWriMo. Or even further shortened to NaNo. For those of you who live under a rock, NaNoWriMo is where seemingly insane writer's gather around and race the clock to finish a 50, 000 word novel in one month. Yes, you heard correctly; 50,000 words written in one month. It only comes around once a year though; in November.

But something awesome happened a few years ago and the amazing creators of NaNoWriMo started Camp NaNoWriMo, which takes place in different months within the year before November. The last one was in April, and now it's here once again in July!

It's the same concept, but a little more laid back than November's NaNoWriMo. During Camp NaNoWriMo you may choose your own word count goal as long as it's within the word count goal guidelines and then just. . . write! Write to your hearts content towards your goal and come July 31st, if you've met your goal, you win! *throws confetti*

My goal for July's Camp NaNo is: 20,000 words. 

That is only at least 646 words a day, every day, until the end of July to meet my goal. :)

Since I'm participating, I'll try to update every day for a recap of my word stats. Here are my status for Day One of Camp NaNoWriMo July 2014.

Daily Goal: 646 words
Total Words: 1, 848
How many words over today? I went over my word count goal of 646 by 1, 202. Not bad for the first day. :) Hope I can keep it up!  

Week One Goal: 3, 876
How many more words until weekly goal is met? 2, 028 more words until I meet this weeks word count goal.

How many more words until monthly goal is met? 18, 152 more words until my goal of 20, 000 for this month is met.

If you're participating in Camp NaNo, please share your word count goals and how you did on the first day! :)
