An Update on Camp NaNoWriMo Before I Go

In a little under three hours, I'll be in a car headed for the airport. Our flight is scheduled to leave at 7:05 AM, but we live about an hour and a half away so we're leaving the house at 4 AM. At the moment, I'm supposed to be putting the last things in my suitcase. However, I decided to take a minute to fill you in on where I'm at with Camp NaNoWriMo.

Currently, my word count is 3,716 words. The goal for Day Ten is 3,610. I get back from New York on Day Twelve. Not only did I get caught up, but I pushed enough ahead that I'll only be behind a few hundred words when I get back. This was what I was aiming for and it feels awesome to have achieved it.

The end of OBJECTION is close enough I can taste it. When I return, I vow to be a writing machine. I will finally finish this draft. Huzzah!

I'm excited. What are you excited about?


  1. I'm going to a writers conference at an unspecificed date (since I don't want to tip off burglars when I won't be home). I'm going to pitch two different manuscripts to agents, so I have to practice getting each down to a minute.

    1. Oooh. Sounds like an experience. I hope your pitch practicing is going well. I've always kind of wanted to go to such a conference, but I don't feel I'm ready.
