Camp NaNoWriMo Update #2

“The Twin Arrows” didn’t get much attention last week, but that doesn’t mean I’ve given up on my goal. I’m only a thousand words behind, and that’s nothing a long writing session and a little chocolate can’t fix, right? πŸ˜› (I have exactly five caramels and two Rolos, FYI.)


The “distractions” of last week have been the best kind. I finished up beta-reading an early draft of Lydia Howe’s fantastic novel “Echoes”. Let me tell ya’–it’s gonna be awesome. πŸ˜€ She’s currently posting about it on her blog Noveltea, so go check it out and get yourself excited. (*chants* Publish, publish, publish!) πŸ˜€


Just because I wasn’t breaking anyone out of a castle or editing, doesn’t mean I wasn’t writing! Au contraire! I wrote a [long] short story. It’s a little different than anything I’ve ever written before, so I’m not sure if I like it yet. Maybe I’ll post it on here in the future, and you can help me decide. πŸ˜‰ The Dana Alphasmart I got for my birthday was extremely helpful, and I just adore the color. πŸ˜€ #shamelesspicturereusing

I also got to READ some! It’s been awhile since I’ve had time to actually finish a book, and I think that’s partly why my creativity was suffering. Check out my Goodreads reviews to see what I’ve been enjoying. πŸ˜‰

My family and I had a great celebration of Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday complete with amazing food, adorable nephews, and some very blessed worship of Christ with our church family. πŸ˜‰

Can you believe it? Sir Larkin and Drewin are still in that castle! Have mercy on this poor busy author though because I have the daunting challenge of replacing an entire chapter. I wrote half of it last week, and I have the rest pretty lined out for finishing it. Who ever guessed I’d be excited to get back to editing as the “easy part”? πŸ˜›

How is your Camp adventure going? How did you celebrate the Resurrection?

  1. My camp project is going great! I reached the end of “Dylan’s Story.” Well, at least until my editor has read it and given feedback. πŸ˜‰ Now I can work on my author story, or our story, or “Hymns in the Hills” . . . Oh, so many choices. πŸ™‚ I’m planning to make tomorrow my “day of writing” and write as much as I can. I’ve never done that before, so we’ll see how it goes.

    On Sunday my sister and I sang in the choir, and then after visiting a little after church, we came home and relaxed. It’s been crazy and busy and the day of rest was very much appreciated. (Even if finding a book I was actually interested in reading took 4 tries!)

    1. WOOHOO! I can’t wait to see Dylan’s Story. πŸ˜‰ So many options coming up! Wow, yes. I’m sure that will be great.

      That sounds like a very nice day! Oh, yeah. Bummer books are a little frustrating… πŸ˜‰


    1. *whispers* Dystopian. Conspiracy. Medical intrigue.

      I KNOW!!! *hides in shame* All care packages can be addressed to Sir Larkin and Drewin of Arcella in the castle storeroom. Good luck getting them past the guards. πŸ˜€

      1. OMGOSH! I am all in, save the medical. I can’t do blood well. πŸ˜› Sounds epic! I love me some conspiracy (hence, that’s pretty much what all my books have in them, oops! :D)
        AH OK. I’mma send ’em a key. ;D And a bazooka.

      2. Fortunately, I can’t handle blood either so I kept out of that department. πŸ˜€

        Oh, yes. I’m sure both will be useful, though I’m not sure they will know what to do with the bazooka…

  2. My camp project… ahahaha. Well, It’s coming along great, it’s just apparently I had a lot more to write in it then I figured. Alas for editing it this month… I’ll probably only get to edit the last week or so lol. :/

  3. Goodness! KATE you’re so sweet! I can’t believe I missed this post until now. Thank you so much for that shout-out and for beta reading in the first place! That makes me incredibly happy. Good job with your Camp NaNoWriMo project! YAY for being on track!
    By the way, I talked about you in my vlog today. πŸ˜‰ (Of course that was before I knew you’d talked about *me* on your blog!)

    1. Aw, you’re welcome! It was a TON of fun. πŸ˜€

      Thanks! I’m not quite on track, but I’m not too far behind either. πŸ˜›

      Oh, what a fun post! I’m so happy for you that your planner came!!! πŸ˜‰
