So what’s the game plan now?

Currently Listening To: Eternal Rest, by Avenged Sevenfold

So now that the thrill of writing so much in a month has worn off…what’s next?

Well this week I’ll be taking a break from writing. I have a desk job so my wrists need some rest because when I come home, it’s back to typing. Plus it’s a holiday week, so I intend on enjoying it.

But next week? It’s time to get down and dirty.

Compared to previous NaNoWriMo attempts, this novel is pretty clean. I’d say only one or two days were really messy drafts.

I’ve already made a backup of my stuff. I need to review my grammer and punctuation rules.

Not to mention, my room could use some cleaning.

Enjoy your Sunday folks! If you have a twitter follow me @AC_Gates !

Day Twenty-Six – Dodging a bullet

Song of the Day: Drug Me, by Dead Kennedys

Word Count: 67,021

I was able to get things under control at work, so I had a little time to write. Hurray!

So I’ve been asked if I will do an August Camp NaNoWriMo. It’s tempting, it really is, but at this point I won’t have a need to write out another draft. July and onwards I will be focusing on editing.

If I attempt it, it will be more of a “how fast can I write 50,000 words”. I don’t want to burn myself out for November…if I’m able to do it.
