It's that time again! Time to prep for another grueling month of writing, editing, and creating! It's time for Camp NaNoWriMo, July edition!
I had an absolute blast back in April during that Camp month. I felt like I worked my fingers to the bone, but it was so worth it to complete the month and see the progress that I made. I was able to crush April with a whopping 50,081 words, and I cannot wait for July 1st to roll around so we can do it all again!
My project is already set up on the website! Take a peek at what I am going to be working on...
That's right! Its book 3 in the Thistlewood Witches series! This novel will follow Savannah, our green witch/kitchen witch as she learns about the secrets and mysteries behind her heritage, finding love with someone that she could never have imagined, and fights against those who are willing to steal the forest around her.
I am so excited to start working on this story. Savannah's story was one that slowly came to me over time, weaving its way into a perfect little romance that's just waiting to blossom. Savannah's story goes in a bit of a different direction from both Sydney and Alexis, so we shall see where the writing takes me!
One thing that I did back in April was make a word tracker to color in as I wrote. Filling in that page with all the different colors of leaves gave me a lot of joy, and this time, I wanted to do something very similar.
It took me a bit to sketch it out at first, but here's my pretty petal word tracker! Each petal represents a thousand words, and as July progresses, the flower will get fuller and fuller until it explodes with color! I am so excited to see this thing filled out at the end of the month, and it has really given me a lot of motivation for pushing forward. If I ever start bullet journaling (which I am going to try in 2022), then I'll be making word trackers like this for every month of the year! There's just something about them that inspires me to push forward and see the month through.
With my story plotted and ready to go, I am just counting down the days until July 1st hits. I want to write Savannah's story so bad, and its going to be a great treat to spend a month in her head and heart, watching her love story unfold!
Just me, a paranormal romance author with big dreams and even bigger crushes!
