The halfway mark for Camp Nano: July 2018 edition has arrived. Word count wise I’m doing good, with an expected (according to them) end date of the 26th. However, in actually accomplished projects I’m not doing as well. I’ve been writing my blog posts which accounts for much of my word count, as well as some shorter stories that have come to mind. However I had two projects I wanted to complete this month that have yet to be completed.
One is a multi-chapter fanfiction that I’ve been working on several years now (2012) and its starting to get a little ridiculous that I haven’t finished it yet. Especially as I have several chapters mostly written. However on the other hand its been one of my more popular works in fanfiction so perhaps the long time working on it paid off.
I also had a project from April where I had 30 songs that I was going to translate into writing prompts. I have yet to work on this at all.
Mostly I think it’s an issue of time management, which I’m apparently bad at, but also inspiration. There are some days where just nothing will come out (which ends up being the days I get more work done on my essay series for this blog.
I’m hoping that when I give my end of month update I’ll have a lot better news to share. I plan on trying to manage my time a little bit better and getting the stories done I wanted to get done. I also plan on finishing some of the essays that I have that are left incomplete – including one WOH essay that was meant to be posted over a week ago.
I’ll be posting the end-of-Nano post on the 30th. Not actually the last day (as July has 31 days) but it’s the last posting day for this blog for July.
