July Camp NaNoWriMo 2013: Week One

So week one didn’t exactly go as planned, at all. It started off ok as far as blog and website revisions. Although, the end of the week could have gone better. But I’ll get to that later.
Here are my week stats so far.

My week one stats are as follows:
Day One: 0 total word count
Day Two: 0 total word count
Day Three: 29 total word count
Day Four: 301 total word count
Day Five: 0 total word count
Day Six: 0 total word count
Say Seven: 0 total word count

Week One: 12,374 total word count (left over from April Camp NaNo)

I know, I know…week one didn’t exactly go as planned, but bear with me, it’s getting better and a little easier. I just seemed to stay stuck in writer’s block for this one scene for the longest. I finally had to sit myself down and visualize how I wanted the scene to play out, and then things slowly got a little easier.
Day one could have gone better in terms of actual novel writing. However, I am working on a couple of new treats for everyone! I have two new short stories in the works to be posted vera, vera soon (I hope). If all goes well, I may be able to post them before the month is up. If not, I will definitely do my best to post them asap post Camp NaNoWriMo.
Really, the first two days were spend updating my blog and website for all of you, since I knew Andrew was posting a brand new author spotlight series, highlighting yours truly first, along with a few other select authors for the rest of the month. I was truly touched when I read the kind words he had to say about me and my writing. If you want to check it out, please do! There’s also a hashtag going around as #askglasgow if you have any questions on either Twitter or Facebook. 🙂
Really, the rest of the week was a bit of a struggle to get back into the writing swing of things. I took a day off last Friday (5th) to go see Despicable Me 2 with my boyfriend, and his younger brother. Later, he (boyfriend) fixed some homemade rice vermicelli, which was great! I love it when he cooks, he’s pretty good at it. 🙂
Unfortunately, my weekend took an unexpected turn after that and it’s been hard to get back into the writing mood. Although things have gotten a good bit better, and I feel like noveling again now. I’m just trying to let the words flow out of me instead of trying to force them out. I’ve found that letting the words flow onto the page almost always works out better than forcing something onto the page.
Anywho, so I’m trying hard to finish my novel within the next month in hopes of having it published by this fall. I’ll be sure to keep y’all posted on the progress, and of course, I will be keeping my progress bar off to the side updated regularly so y’all can keep an eye on that too, if you so wish. 🙂

     Excited to see everything coming together!

PS: I’m so sorry this is so delayed. But hey…at least it isn’t a month late. 😛
