Camp NaNoWriMo, Day 1


Those of you who have followed my previous blog,, will know that I used to regularly participate in the monthly writing challenges. What you may also know is that I haven’t written more than a short story in the last two-three years. Partly this was due to my time-consuming Animal-a-day project (now, thankfully, complete). So, this year I have signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo. But it’s a bit of an odd one – because I’m not starting a new manuscript. I’m actually scavenging fragments of my old manuscript, preserving what is important to the plot (with a few character/name changes) and then intending to stitch it together with new material to create a better overall story line. This is hopefully going to come up with a more streamlined final product. That hopefully makes sense.

So, my pirated word-count by 2.11 pm on July 1st: 6141 words

# of new words written: around 1000
