Determined to win NaNoWriMo 2018

As most of you I’ve been writing is Camp Nanowrimo and this November I’m trying Nanowrimo for the 9th year.

I am writing a seven book series I’m calling Crimson Shadow Collection. There are about 75 vampires and this is the series is about their lives. I have been working on the set-up of this series since 2008-2009 I’m still stuck on book 2 even though I have many scenes for the other books written.

  • 2010 The Whispering Path
  • 2011 Driving Lies Book 1
  • 2012 The Crimson Shadow Collection: Melzela, (on my Rebekah Wolveire account)
  • 2012 Driving Lies Book 2
  • 2013 Driving Lies Book 3
  • 2014 The Crimson Shadow Collection: Daris started
  • 2015 Pieces of me (It was a personal collection)

2010 to 2015 I won each year, writing over 50,000 words (I was with my ex back then)

______________

2016 The Crimson Shadow Collection: Daris (between family drama and muses wanting to write scenes for book 3 to 7, I did not hit 50,000 words)

2017 The Broken Path (My location and exhaustion kept me 15,000 words short of my goal: it’s not finished, but on back burner)

2018 The Crimson Shadow Collection: Daris (I am determined to write and get my 50,000 words)

I’m working Daris again as there are notes, scenes for it everywhere on my flash drive but nothing is together in chapter form. I’m going to put it together.

Working on Nonfiction

I wrote 30,691 words on Camp NaNoWriMo. I wish I wrote more, but I’ve been battling with my muses.

So I decided to write some personal articles.

(Since my mom is getting hernia surgery this month, I’m using this to write and learn about myself and be a distraction.)

I will be posting on these blogs

Please read and enjoy.

Finished Camp Nanowrimo

I completed Camp Nanowrimo July 2018 with the word count 30,691.

I swear as soon as I just barely got pass 30,000 words . . . it was like my muses stopped. I hit a writing brick wall.

I can write a few blogs, but its like muses saw the up hill hike for part 2 and all said “hell no!” LOL.

I am grateful that I finished part one, and I wrote over 30,000 words by hand.

However even my desk lamp broke, so next month it will be more blogs.

Camp Nanowrimo Update

I’m flustered, because . . .

  1. My desk lamp got broken.
  2. As soon as I got to 30k my muses stopped
  3. Whether I sleep 1 hour or 10, I still feel exhausted
  4. Every time I try to write in the day, I get interrupted

I did make my goal by 440 words. Maybe tomorrow I’ll reread and see if anything sparks my muses.

Writing Mood: Content

Its day 19 and betweens the blogs, notes, and novel I’m at 35,000 words. Yay! My novel is at 25,715 words which awesome for my 30,000 word goal. Again, I would love to reach 50,000 words, but if I don’t I still did really well. What counts is that I got parts of my novel written.

Lately, I’ve been in a writing and very creative mood. I feel like myself. . . like I can face the world with pen (sword) in hand.

Only frustration is when I get interrupted, it gets hard to get back into a drama scene. I sometimes have to reread my work and notes a dozen times. However lately its like my head can magically go back.

I still snap when someone interrupts me, and then I feel bad. Like the other night, I’m in my zone and I was sitting at the edge of my seat, and kept asking me “what are you doing?”

Now I could have gotten sarastic, and said “winning fake money at slots or petting my monkey. . .” but then he will just ask more questions.

He kept asking my mom until both her and I were irked. I snapped. I wasn’t mad. I was irked, annoyed. If he stood up, he would have saw the the pens and notebook out.

Even today the drunken neighbor asked “What was I do with the notebook and pen?” I could have said ” I am your new ruler, and I’m just now working on your million rules.” However I just said “I’m a write, and I write stories.”

I’ve learned that sarasm just isn’t that nice anymore and makes me sounds more like a cranky b*tch.

The thing that my uncle said the other night did get to me . . . “why aren’t you happy?”

Actually, minus a sleep issues, I’m pretty content right now. I don’t have to be explosive happy all of the time. I’m content writing in my own world.

Camp Nanowrimo July Update

Its almost half way through Camp Nanowrimo July 2018.

My word count so far is 23,057.

My goal is 30,000 words,

but it would be nice to get up or pass 50,000 words. I’ll still be happy if I get between the two goals.

I got part 1 out 5 finished in my book.

I’m excited about part 2, because I’ll be working on urban legends and horror stories.
