On losing Camp NanoWrimo July.

Disappointed in myself? Extremely but its okay, I still plan to continue writing. I have ended with a mere 6,819 words but if I would stay on the positive train I’d say that is a lot compared to my previous attempts at writing projects. I do have lots of “excuses”but the point is I shouldn’t have stopped, because once you stop for one day it turns to one week and then three weeks till you type in your blog post how you have lost.Easier typed than done however. I should have also considered reducing y word goal as a first timer and working along with that but I truly thought and still believe that I am capable.The dreaded should have, would have, could have syndrome.

Book Thoughts:Post Reading Slumps

You know that time after you have read a book where you can’t seem to readily read another? I just finished the Winner’s series and for some reason I haven’t been able to pick up the next book on my reading list The Raven King. I KNOW it will be an awesome read but it’s so weird. Am I not in the right mood? Am I not completely out of the zone of the previous series? It is not a complete book slump is it? I want to read and I have a book I have highly anticipated right at my finger tips but something has me in a slump and the source is unknown. I wonder if it because of the complete difference between the two series. It’s like jumping into completely different world’s Not to mention o me The Raven cycle is heavily concentrated right now with so many events and activities that these guys have to untie to get to their ending. It makes me think maybe this book is too heavy for me to get into, maybe I will feel better if I read something lighter , a cheesy read even( sometimes cheese is what I need you know?)

It’s always an odd feeling to be in a reading slump especially when you know you love to read. It could also be that I need to be in the here and now. With work and my (rather slow)attempt at Camp NaNoWrimo it feels like I can’t afford to disappear into a book as obsessively as I would want to normally. It’s like am anchored in reality and I can’t leave it just yet.

Where I’ve been & What I’m doing

For the final half of June was spent mostly trying to put together a plan to attempt Camp Nanowrimo July edition. July has come and I am not where I am suppose to be but I refuse to pull out. I have been working during the time a bit more hours than usual and so if I finish I will forever look back on that time I pushed to the limit and finished what I start.

This is not my first time attempting but from lack of practice it does feel challenging especially the planning and plotting stages however hopefully after this go at it and many others I will develop my own system. If anyone of you are participating or working on your own projects good luck to you and hopefully we will both have something done at the end of this month to get off our 2016 Goal list!

Try and try again right?
