Better Late Than Never

I have not been in the writerly way as much in the last few months. I am taking a break from my MFA program since my day job has been so busy. However, I did do one thing…

I finished the April 2015 Camp NaNoWriMo with a word count of 30,000. While this was not my first Camp, it was my first success. I made an attempt last year but bailed about about 5,000 words because I really had not plotted out my story and was writing blind.

I have learned – I am not a pantser. I need an outline to be successful. Especially when I need to have a high output, like during NaNo.

My historical fiction project is not a little over 80,000 words and it is so not finished. I expect it to be about 100,000-115,000 when finished. Then I plan to trim a fair amount during revisions.

I am still deciding whether to do July’s Camp. I probably will, but I think my word count will need to be on the low side. Summer Reading Club is about to start at work and I am basically the sole person in my library in charge of it. I expect a hectic summer.
