Thursday, April 18 – and the day before Easter. My concern right now, is when and if I’ll have time to write anything on Sunday, since we are having a family meeting then. Mixed feelings, in other words.
You see, my writing for Camp WriMo has exceeded my anticipation hugely. Yesterday’s contribution made me almost reach my first goal, 15 000 words. To be exact, that day I scored 14 943 words. In 17 days, I reached my original goal, you could say.
Yesterday was also the day I wrote the most. 1 651 words.
A week ago I raised my goal to 21 000 words, and yesterday I raised it again to 24 000. And I am a bit ahead of myself.
It’s hard to remember how things were 10-15 years ago. I know I wrote a lot during 2006 – 2012, but it seems like I’ve increased something in me now. Like I’m letting go even more freely now, and kind of surrender myself to the story, It just comes by itself, it seems, and find its way through me, from somewhere bigger than I, and down onto the computer. I just love the process and handing me over like this. When writing the first words, not knowing what will happen next, and then just follow it along.
I also think I’ve re-found my own tone now. I’m recognizing that humorous undertone, quirky personalities, and odd dialogs. Really glad that this is still in me. Being a part of me.
Soon, very soon now, I’ll begin to write today’s scene, or scenes, don’t know yet what it will be or how much. I will exceed 1000 words though, hopefully even pass 1500 – that I have decided. Oh! This is so exciting!
If you haven’t already, why not read This scene!?
