Sooooo…it is August! And August means… Camp NaNo is ended!
I won, with a total of… I don’t even remember my word count. But since I was editing and not freewriting, it really doesn’t matter. The point is, I edited the amount I needed.
A few months ago, I decided that my goal was to be completely done with draft two by the end of October. Basically, be all done with draft two in time to write something else (the sequel) for NaNoWriMo.
In order to do that, I have to edit roughly 20k each month. So what’s my goal to do this month?
That’s right, edit 20k. I have roughly 50k left to edit (which is slightly less than half the novel), but the second half has less plot issues and inconsistencies than the first half, so I’m hoping that it’ll be a lot quicker to edit than the first half. (I’ve been editing since March or so, so you can see how long the first half took to go through. But it was mostly rewrites and rewrites are kind of hard and slow.)
So I basically plan to have six more chapters edited by the end of the month. So by the beginning of September, if all goes well, I should be starting work on chapter thirty.
How did Camp go for everybody else, if you participated?
