Camp NaNoWriMo is almost half over. And guess what? Drum roll, please. I'm behind. Be-Hin-Duh. My word count is at 13,354 when it's supposed to be at 22,580. And that's fine. Because my goal wasn't to get to 50k, even if that would be awesome. My goal was to finish this rewrite.
The total count for THE LULLABY has reached 36,396 with chapter titles and 36,301 without chapter titles. These numbers are important for two reasons. The original draft of THE LULLABY was only 30,236 words and 35,000 is the halfway point to my goal of 70k.
I'm thinking I need to change my goal, however. 60k feels more appropriate for my novel and I don't think I'm even going to reach that, at least this time around. I can tell already I'm going to have to add some character development scenes for my side characters during editing.
Overall, Camp NaNo could be going better, but it could also be going worse.
