Camp NaNoWiMo: Day 8 — Over Halfway!

2015-04-08 11.18.50
Today’s fuel is Katz Texas Chocolate Mudslide Coffee. Ahhhhh…..chocolate!

Yesterday I passed the halfway mark: both the halfway point in revising and editing the book, and my word count goal for Camp NaNo! I’m at 5898 words as I sit down to work on the second half of the book today. I’m still in the lead for my cabin, too. Yesterday was my biggest word count day with over 1200 words. It’s so weird: that was a big day for Camp and revising, but it would be a bad day for regular NaNo. I’ve never paid any attention to daily word count when I’m revising before so looking at numbers as I’m doing this feels really odd. But good. Yes, good.
