Lilly Avalon Monthly Writing Update #12 for April 2021

Friday, April 30, 2021 No comments

Every month I share an update about what I'm writing in my Monthly Writing Update!
Here's the latest for the month of April.

If you look at my March update, my main goal was to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo with the word count goal of 10,000 words.

Have I accomplished this?

YES! I am so pleased to say that I managed to meet my goal of 10,000 words this month. On April 26th, I hit 10,058 words, which brings the grand total of my WIP to 20,932 words. I had a really good first two days, then I missed a day and had some low word counts for a few days. I got caught up and managed to remain consistent and ahead which allowed me to finish early.

While I could have continued and gotten another 500-1000 words, I decided to give this WIP a short break for a few days. I love this story, but there is so much that I need to fix to prevent any continuity errors as well as adding in the correct details. I had written an outline up to a certain point, yet I've deviated from that outline so much along the way that I feel I may have some potential issues. Those will hopefully all be corrected during revisions.

Goals for May

I would love to get as many words written as I possibly can in May. As far as a word count goal goes, I'm kind of leaving it up in the air for now. Aiming for 10k would be optimal, but I don't want to force it, even though 323 words a day is reachable. My husband and I are going to be visiting family one weekend, so I don't want to aim too high when I won't be able to write for a few days. But I promise I will keep writing as much as I can!

If you want to keep up with my progress, I'll be posting occasionally on my social media about it, so be sure to follow me.

Love you all lots! Take care, everybody!
