Day four at camp

Day four at camp was fun, although I didn't get as much writing done as I had hope to. We had fun watching fireworks last night after a fun picnic with friends.
  • Making quick edits to what I wrote by hand yesterday as I typed it up.
  • fun word sprints via twitter
  • new ideas from friends during our picnic

Despite the good day, I got lots of bug bites and not enough writing done. Hopefully today goes better.

Today is a new day for writing. I better get back to my tent and continue writing.

Review of day three at camp

Day three at camp was a blast!
It was rather hot out, and that was fine. Don't ask me why, but I brought the TV, DVD player, and the rental place along. So last night we rented "The Kings Speech", and watched that before shooting off a few fireworks. Naturally that meant no time to do any writing from about 8:00 until a little after eleven when I joined in with the word sprints on twitter.
Here are some of the other highlights of yesterdays day at camp:
  • Listening to little kids laugh as they rode their bikes up and down the street while I wrote
  • having steak for dinner in the back yard
  • listening to the local minor league baseball team play on the radio for half an hour
  • getting about 200 words away from the 10000 word mark

Day 2 at camp recap

Yesterday (June 3) was day two at campnanowrimo. Boy was it fun! I've been enjoying camp quite a bit this year. The following is a recap of some of the events of yesterday.
  • I wrote over 3000 words by hand, then typed them up during the middle of a rather hot day.
  • I went down to the river to watch the Bay City fireworks. For a good hour, I sat on the hill by the river writing several hundred words that yet have to be typed up, and filled the first notebook for this novel.
  • I stayed up a little to late watching youtube videos as I tried to inspire myself to start a second notebook for this novel.
  • In the end I fell asleep a little too late, and woke up a little too early.
