Writing Update: April 2022

Most of the writing I did this month wasn’t “real” writing. At the end of March, prompted by me winning the bid on a condo, I decided to finally sort through all of my old story notes. This meant going through a lot of folders and notebooks and typing up everything that wasn’t already typed.

There was a lot of stuff to type up. On the 2nd day of April, I decided to count these words toward my Camp NaNoWriMo goal. One, because I didn’t want to take all that paper with me when I moved, and two, because I was having a hard time actually outlining Samael.

My initial goal, which I talked about in a blog post on March 18th, was to finish the Samael outline. Apparently I realized this was ridiculous soon afterward, because the goal that I put into my goals spreadsheet said “finish four issues of the Samael outline”.

Unless I somehow manage to write about 6k words tomorrow, that won’t be happening. I finished Issue 15 and am currently working on the outline for Issue 16. I might actually be able to get that done by the end of tomorrow.

However, I did outline a bunch of stuff that happens later in the story rather than sticking to my usual strict chronological outlining. As it turns out, this helps a lot when you want a higher wordcount! Who knew?

Well…everyone, I think. Except me.

I will post a full analysis of this Camp NaNo session next Friday!
