The End of Camp

Guess what???

I completed my first Camp NaNo!

And yes . . . I totally did this dance:)

277 printed pages have been scribbled through with different colored pens for each chapter and hopefully I have discovered ever grammatical error – DOUBT IT – but I finished. And I cannot tell how happy I am to finally be back to using Word. I mean, reading printed out sheets is fun in all, but I miss typing. And writing, and getting lost, and typing so fast that I think I’m disturbing everyone in the computer lab with my TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP – I’ve missed that! And the way the keys feel under your fingers cause you’re pressing a lot of buttons and I’m the type of person that always has to press the button. It’s so good to be back! And I’ve missed writing, if I haven’t mentioned that before.

I have to say, I am really glad I participated this month. Camp has taught me that in order for me to finish going through my entire manuscript, I need a deadline, a red target with percentages on it to show my progress to the bullseye in the middle, a bar graph with a line running through it, and a message that reads how many days are left of the month, which updates every day!

So, now what? Well, since you asked:) I will be applying all the changes I made. Not sure how long that will take since I need to rewrite two chapters because of POV conflictions. One chapter near the end will be taken out and placed in Book 2. And one or two chapters may be cut – ow my heart.

MAYBE. I haven’t decided.

I really don’t want to cut them, but a part of me tells me that they aren’t needed.

But I love the chapters. I must keep them.

No.

Yes.

No!

Yes!

NO!!!

YES!!!

AHHHH!!!

Anyway, are you interested in seeing what 36 chapters look like when arranged in a circle? Then look no further! Except down!

Isn’t it beautiful? And somewhat satisfying? Please tell me I’m not the only one who finds peace and comfort in this . . .

I thought so . . . 😦 But that’s okay! If you didn’t enjoy those photos, then here’s one of me and my baby!

Isn’t it beautiful? Okay, I’ll stop.

Has anyone else completed their goal? If you have, here’s a gif just for you!

  1. I AM FAILING MISERABLY! SEND HELP, HUGS, AND ALSO AN ENDLESS SUPPLY OF COOKIES.

    But OH MY GOODNESS, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! I am so SO proud of you, and might I just mention how aesthetically pleasing that ring of chapters looks like??? It is gorgeous, and I would like to print out my first draft just to see if I can make something as amazingly beautiful…

    CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN! Hopefully I can get my hours done in order to complete my NaNo, because I REALLY want that Scrivener coupon. (hopefully it will work with Scrapple, because I REALLY WANT SCRAPPLE)

    Oh! And before I forget… *throws cookies everywhere* Because you deserve ALL OF THE COOKIES!

  2. Congratulations!!! (Insert parade here) you did it! And that inspires me to keep pushing too. I’m almost there, cutting it a little bit close this time around, but I think I will be done in a day or two. Hopefully. Haha

  3. Eek that circle of chapters is positively beautiful!!!!! I love it so much. ❤ ❤ ❤ I don't think I ever would have thought of doing that but now I'm kind of dying to try it… 🙂

    I've practically given up on CampNaNo this time around. 🙂 Although–you never know! I COULD buckle down and make my word goal. Even if I don't, though, I'm cool with it.

    Congratulations on getting all that editing done!!! That's so exciting! And impressive! And happy-ing!

  4. You’re baby is beautiful!!!

    And love that circle. Congrats again for winning NaNo camp!

    I’m going to give it another try in July, when I will have more time to devote to it. April got way busy. But I did accomplish some editing, so onward march 😉
