Camp Nanowrimo. Day Eight- 7/8/13
Well... to say things have been going well would be a lie. I have not been doing as well as I would have liked and now I'm just getting frustrated. I don't know what it is but I just cannot get it together!
I started off strong- writing every day at least a thousand words and most of the time over that. I think I average 1600 a day. And then towards the end of the week, I just wasn't feeling it. I was unmotivated and frustrated that I was!
I've written a total of 8,175 words. My goal is 50,000. To finish my novel on time I will have to write 1,700 words per day. At the rate I'm going with zero words today I will finish August 18th.
On the plus side, my cabin has been doing very well and we're all helping each other out. There's one person in the group who's going crazy and writing over 5,000 a day. I'm completely envious. BUT, the normal people in the group are also struggling.
I find that the cabin aspect is really helpful. I have to admit I was a tad skeptical at first just because I figured people would be so focused on the writing that people wouldn't check in online that often. I was wrong.
To log your word counts, you have to go online. You get notifications when there's unread messages or if someone has in boxed you. It's really cool actually. I tend to just keep the webpage open in the background when I'm working.
I think the only reason I'm still hopeful on finishing is because of the cabin and my cabin mates. They make me want to finish and do well. They really are a support system!
I really need some help guys! Give me some support and push me to finish.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
