What did I do in June?
I wrote 9,698 words with a goal of 10,000. I didn’t make my goal, but I did finish my script! The Book of Immortality is complete at 104,099 words.
This is the first thing I’ve finished since mid-2016. It’s also the first thing that I’ve written since mid-2015 that I’ve actually liked, so I’m pretty proud of myself for not getting discouraged and sticking with this the whole way through!
I also finished scripting the prologue and first chapter of The Land of Two Moons, a story I’ve been plotting out for the past few months.
What do I hope to accomplish in July?
I’m going to be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo again. I’m going to continue working on The Land of Two Moons, and I have a goal of 31 pages. That’s an incredibly easy goal I could hit in a week if I really wanted to, which is why I picked it. I want to take it easy after finishing The Book of Immortality.
However…I’m having a seriously difficult time coming up with an adequate summary. Even trying to put a genre on it is pretty difficult. It’s not that I don’t know what’s going to happen – I totally do – but that it’s hard to do it justice in a paragraph or two without feeling disingenuous or deceptive.
You’ll be able to see my status here. I will also be updating my progress on Twitter, and posting compilation posts on this blog every Saturday (and at the very end of July):
1st Post: Week 1, 1-6 July
2nd Post: Week 2, 7-13 July
3rd Post: Week 3, 14-20 July
4th Post: Week 4, 21-31 July
I’m not going to work on The Book of Immortality at all this month.
To anyone else doing Camp NaNoWriMo this July, good luck!
