Camp NaNoWriMo: Update and Playlist!

Update: So, I had a weekly update all ready for this past Saturday but then my Internet crashed(and is still kind of crashing because the Internet gods hate me) and I lost the post and then...well the Internet was broken so I couldn't very easily redo it. Anyway, here's the writing basics the rest should be in this weeks wrap up post!

60k in 5Days: sooo... I did mention I believe once or twice that my brother dared me to try and write 60,000 words in just 5 days. Now, keep in mind, this time last year I did my first 50k week where I wrote 50,000 words in 7 days and it almost killed me... Anyhow... I DID IT! In fact, I ended the five days with not 60k but 60,047...so... BAM!

That also means that I won NaNo, as my goal was 100k and I've written just over 102k. Yay! As for how I managed to do this... I have a theory. You see, much like a cat I have nine lives and to write so much so quickly (I finished this all on the 16th) I had to lose a life... I'm now down to like seven, don't ask how I lost the other. ;)

I haven't written since, because I was tired and then still tired and then feeling migrainey but I do plan on writing a bit more by the end of the month to at least finish up my second novel Codename: Wonderland. Here's my writing playlist for it, it includes lots of Wonderland-y songs and, of course, my NaNo months anthem, Go The Distance from Hercules. Also, obviously some Fall Out Boy...and some rap? Blame my brother but it turns out listening to a little rap really helps me concentrate when writing. Who knew?


What have you been up to? I'm about halfway through two books for the Make Me Read It read-a-thon, if you're doing it, hows it coming? If you're writing anything, I want to know! Just, TELL ME THINGS! Please?

    1. Haha, thanks, Val! And I DON'T KNOW, I have no idea how I did it but I'm pretty sure I didn't sleep at all, I mean, those days, they're pretty hazy in my mind now, only fragments....who knows what I did. =)

      And the read-a-thon is so much fun! I'm almost done with my second book, kind of going a little slow. =P

    1. Thanks, Shannon! My secrets are yours, no sleep! And I've fallen back in the read-a-thon, the exhaustion was too much! I definitely couldn't speak that many words in five days, plus the more I write the less words work for me when I'm talking. =)
