April Writing Recap

CNW_Winner_1500-1In order to track my progress, I like to do a writing recap at the end of every month. Here’s how I did in April.

Last month I undertook two writing challenges, Camp NaNoWriMo and the A to Z blog challenge. One of my goals this year is to blog more often. While I knew 26 posts in one month would be a stretch, I decided to see how far I got. By the end of April, I’d done 18 of the 26 letters and was pretty happy with my posts. I also found a number of other bloggers I liked interacting with, both on Twitter and in blog comments. I plan to write and post the remaining letters (P through W) in May.  

Camp NaNoWriMo presented a bigger problem. I couldn’t figure out what to work on. I usually do really well with writing during the April Camp NaNo session, but this year, it was one thing too many. I barely checked in with my cabin, and ended up counting 1,000 words for every day, to mark that I’d done something writing-related. So, in addition, to the blog posts, here are the projects I worked on:

A to Z Challenge – O is for On Hold

I have some other writing projects that have taken precedence, but I’m hoping to catch up on A to Z next week!

I’m revising the first 2 chapters of one WIP and doing a 2nd draft (and adding 9,000 words) to another. I haven’t been home much this week to make a lot of progress on either, but my plan is to buckle down and fly through both revisions this weekend and start catching up on blog posts on Monday.

How are you doing with the A to Z Challenge?
