Camp NaNoWriMo: April 2021

Wednesday, May 5, 2021


Hello lovelies!

It's time for a wrap-up of how Camp NaNoWriMo went for me in April! I really enjoy participating in Camp NaNo in the spring because I can set my own goal. NaNoWriMo in November has the automatic goal of 50,000 words and that's a tough goal for me to reach in a month. I would love to get to the point where I'm able to write 1667 words consistently every day, but it will take some time. In the meantime, Camp NaNo is where it's at for me!

My goal for April was 10,000 words. That comes out to 334 words per day. On a good writing sprint (10-15 minutes), I'm able to write between 250-350 words. I figured that as long as I can get one writing sprint in per day (or double up when I miss a day), I can reach this goal.

Take a look at my daily word counts for all of April to see how I did!

GOAL = 10,000 words

April 1st = 400
April 2nd = 556
April 3rd = 0
April 4th = 178
April 5th = 457
April 6th = 251
April 7th = 215
April 8th = 156
April 9th = 467
April 10th = 505
April 11th = 494
April 12th = 319
April 13th = 229
April 14th = 499
April 15th = 366
April 16th = 540
April 17th = 648
April 18th = 877
April 19th = 306
April 20th = 100
April 21st = 369
April 22nd = 735
April 23rd = 418
April 24th = 555
April 25th = 92
April 26th = 326
April 27th = 0
April 28th = 0
April 29th = 0
April 30th = 0

TOTAL = 10,058 words

As you can see, I had a spectacular month of writing. I managed to finish early, which is why the last 4 days have 0 for the word count (I took a break). All of the words written in April got added to the grand total in my work in progress, bringing it to 20,932 words!

I'm about halfway through the story and I'm hoping to be able to have it finished sometime this summer. My original goal was to have this book available this summer/fall, but I'm unsure what my plans will be at the moment. I'll post an update this month regarding my potential writing and publishing plans for the rest of 2021. In the meantime...

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week!
