Word Count Wednesday--twelve

What am I working on?

I'm working on choosing and editing the part of Mary, Queen of Scottsville Academy I want to turn in for narrative 2.  I haven't really written anything new this week.

Word Count: I honestly don't know. I need to figure out a system to keep track of when I write what, but it definitely wasn't much this week.

How do I feel about the process?

I knew that at this point in the semester I would be doing ten million things at once, which is why I made my camp nanowrimo goal only 15,000.  I still don't like that I haven't written that much though. I've written 12,370 this month so I need to write 2,630 more words to meet my goal so hopefully I can do that soon.

What am I reading?

I just binge read (is that a phrase?) Fallen. It was good, but I thought the ending was a little forced. It was very obvious that it went from a contained story to a grand, epic, crazy series in about ten pages. I probably won't read the sequel, but I liked the first book for what it was.

Choose Your Own Adventure-fixed link(?)

Here's the link to my very much work in progress choose your own adventure story, The Mystery of Castle Solstice. Spring and Fall are the most developed so far. I'll be working on finishing it over the weekend.

I think this link should work (maybe) you just have to copy and paste it.

Word Count Wednesday--eleven

What am I working on?

Mary, Queen of Scottsville Academy and the choose your own adventure story, which I named The Mystery of Castle Solstice.  I'm going to continue it on inklewriter and post a link to it over the weekend.

Word Count: 673 on the choose your own adventure.
I haven't been keeping track of my word count for Mary, Queen of Scottsville Academy very well because I just keep adding to the Camp NaNoWriMo word count and forgetting how much I've done since last Wednesday.  I think I wrote around 2,000 this week maybe.

Overall word count for Mary, Queen of Scottsville Academy: 32,603 

How do I feel about the process?

I feel like I've made a lot of progress on the Mary book since I started Camp NaNo.  I just don't want to lose this momentum now that I have it.  I've also thought of a lot of ideas for later on in the plot and sub plots and plots that would take place in a sequel.  I don't know if I'll end up using all of those ideas, but it's nice that they're happening.

What am I reading?

Word Count Wednesday--ten

What am I working on?

I'm still working on the Mary, Queen of Scots book.

Word count: 4,932

How do I feel about the process?

I got a lot done this week thanks to Camp NaNoWriMo.  I set my goal for the month to be 15,000 words.  15,000 in a month really isn't that much, but considering the five classes I'm in and my job, life, etc, I thought it best to set a realistic goal.  Doing Camp NaNoWriMo has gotten me back on track with my book.  I think I was sort of stuck with where I was in the book because I wasn't sure where it was going next.  When Camp NaNoWriMo started I knew I needed to just keep writing it even if it wasn't what I thought it would be.  I wrote some pages that don't fit in to the chronological order of it, but they'll fit in later. It's nice to finally be making more progress on it.

What am I reading?

Bittersweet Within My Heart, The Love Poems of Mary, Queen of Scots.  I've been reading this off and on to help me with my book.

I also binge watched 13 Reasons Why on Netflix and it was amazing.
