(My upmost apologies for abandoning The Blog for ten
amazing days. But never fear, I am here! *congratulates self on corny rhyme*)
I have did it.
I have slayed the dragon, conquered the world, and...COMPLETED CAMP NANOWRIMO MY FIRST TIME EVER. *shrieks*
This may not be too in depth, but I'm going to go ahead and give you this —extremely overdue — recap. ;)
Day Twenty-Two // Friday // 1,022
Friday morning I worked, went to Walmart with Mom, wrote enough to stay caught up, and read about 30% of a book. (Which was fantabulous. I miss reading. :'( )
Also, Jolly Rancher slushies are AWESOMENESS. And brain freezing material, but ya know...my brain deserves to be frozen after all this writing nonsense.
Day Twenty-Three // Saturday // 948
Saturday I slept in and didn't write until after 5 PM (no, I did not sleep until then. sheesh. XD) I'm not sure what else I did that day other than chat with a friend and read some more.
Hannah, my Camp NaNo cabinmate and late-night word war partner was away for the weekend so I had good excuse for not writing...Yeah, I know, my excuses are getting worse and worse. :P
Day Twenty-Four // Sunday // 2,150
Firstly, isn't that a GORGEOUS number?!? *squeals*
Sunday was our homecoming at church, so that meant a big meal in the fellowship hall. (With some awesome deserts. XD) I wrote on the way home and was over 1,000 words by the time we got home that evening. #feelingawesome
I continued to write like crazy until late-ish that night, (Hannah is back!!). Also, I misspelled sympathy, and then I spent the evening all...
*is hurting my precious charrie* *is crying*
*sniffs at the remembrance* Seriously, this book is KILLING ME...
<3 Cute doggies are basically my life. Basically.
Day Twenty-Five // Monday // 457
July twenty-fifth, thanks to the radio announcer, is forever etched in my memory as five months until Christmas. WHAT EVEN?! Where has this year gone, people? *is sad*
Monday evening we left home and went to the campground, a little over an hour from our house. Which is awesome, I love camping. But...*gasp* what if that were to interfere with my writing?!
Day Twenty-Six // Tuesday // 364
Tuesday morning I had to go out and work. And then I read...like all day. B-) Twas epic awesomeness.
Day Twenty-Seven // Wednesday // 260
Wednesday...we were still at the campground...I was still reading oodles. Writing was suffering, but I wasn't too freaked out over it.
Also, I brushed my teeth with a praying mantis...like it was on the wall of the bathroom and I was brushing my teeth. #awkward
Day Twenty-Eight // Thursday // 725
So...Thursday night when came home from the campground, but left the camper (because we went back the next week, which was last week, which was awesome, which I will tell about later. ... Kay?)
I got some writing done on the way home and that night. I'm pretty sure I was back caught up by then. :D
Day Twenty-Nine // Friday // 1,771
Friday...Erm...I don't even remember. (Exactly why I shouldn't wait so long to write such posts. Grrr.) I worked that morning. I wrote in every spare moment. I was confident that I could finish Camp on the thirty...
Day Thirty // Saturday // 1,237
I DID IT PEOPLE. I DID IT I DID IT I DID IT. ASHOCKOSYBRNL;GFYUUSDVBKOLKB.
As of 11:40 Saturday night, I am officially a Camp NaNoWriMo winner, July 2016. *shrieks* *flails* (As you may have discovered by all the un-readable, confusing, weird language and lack of grammar here, let's just say I've spent a great deal of time in the fangirl circle here of late. :P)
War Tears (my precious, precious book that I love so much *huggles it*) was, by this time, a grand total of 55,010 words long. Wowsers. O.O The good/bad part is that it's no where's near done. Now I'm looking at 70-75k as more like reality than possibility. ;)
So...yeah. That's how it went, when I won, and all that good stuff. XD I honesty can't think of anything else to share at the moment, so I'm going to skedaddle off of here and...read, write, eat. Ya know. ;) Hehe, kidding, I'm going to watch a movie. :)
