Where has my brain been this month? See that picture above? That's about it. I've been in Gatlinburg, TN--at least in my imagination.
For the first time, I participated in Camp Nanowrimo instead of the regular version in November. What does that mean? It means I got to set my own word count goals (though I still set mine for 60,000 or more), and it means I could work on a project I'd already started.
I chose to work on a book I'm calling Maid in Love. I started it a few years back and had about 10,000 words done before this month. And how did I do?
As of July 21st, I finished it. Over 65,000 words of a story are now written down where they can be edited and tweaked down the road. Whew! I rather feel like I've been climbing the mountains in that picture. And if you look at the chart below, showing my word count progress, it does look a bit like a mountain.
Is the story any good? That's yet to be determined, but it definitely has good parts. I'll work on it a bit more when things aren't so fresh. In the meantime, I have edits waiting, along with a few other projects. Better get to those. ;)
But yay for having another book written!
Have you accomplished a big mountain of a goal you set out to do this summer? Tried anything new?
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
