July 2020 Camp NaNoWriMo Week 2

The second week of Camp NaNoWriMo has come to a close. I will admit, this wasn’t the easiest of weeks, I was busy with a lot of things around the house, there was a heatwave and I was overall distracted. July is likely to be one of my busiest months of the year, so finding the time to write every day is a challenge, but I still plan on giving it my all. This week, I did find some help with the writing by joining in on some writing sprints. Sprints are one of my favorite ways to write, as they give you a burst of writing and then you take a short break. You can do as many sprints as you want per day. This July 2020 Camp NaNoWriMo Week 2 update will go over how my writing went the last 7 days.

Curious about how the previous week went? Check out my week 1 update.

July 2020 Camp NaNoWriMo Week 2

Day 5

This was an incredibly productive day. Not just with writing but everything else. I got a ton of blog work done, including drafting five posts. Then I put a couple of hours of housework in as I was finally feeling motivated to do so – the heatwave was still here but this day was cooler than the previous ones. After doing so much, I had worried that I would lose my motivation and skip writing. But I had nothing to worry about. When I sat down I was able to easily write 1102 words.

Day 6

I honestly don’t remember what else I had going on this day, but I’m sure that it was busy. I was able to add 938 words.

Day 7

This day I lacked motivation. I wasted a lot of time watching random videos and basically did my best to avoid being responsible. Eventually, I forced myself to sit down and write. It took a while but I managed to get 613 words written.

Day 8

Guess who forgot to update her word count on this day? Yup, I did! It’s the one downside to tracking your writing on a site, sometimes you just forget to go to that site and update it. In the end, I wrote 631 words.

Day 9

I did it again! I forgot to update my word count. Perhaps I need to set a reminder to ensure that I do it. Oh well, what matters is that I did the writing, even if my word count chart doesn’t reflect it. This was a good writing day and I managed to add 1089 words.

Day 10

Now I just feel dumb. I forgot to add the words from this day. Clearly, this is the trend for the week. So, needless to say, my word count chart does a terrible job of reflecting how much I have written. But enough about my failure to keep my stats updated. On this day I managed to write 1023 words.

Day 11

This was quite a busy day. I was tackling a lot of housework that I had ignored the previous days. Even so, I did manage to squeeze in some writing time. I added 684 words.

Overall, it was a pretty good writing week. My word count total is now at 10,004 which is just a bit above where I need to be to reach my 25,000 word goal by the end of the month.

I hope you enjoyed my July 2020 Camp NaNoWriMo Week 2. Are you participating in Camp NaNoWriMo? How is your writing going so far?
