So, Camp Nano’s fourth day has just ended, and my goodness does this story just write itself!
I’ve already reached a word count of over 10,000 words in the space of these four days – this is bearing in mind that I didn’t write a single word on the first day! Hikari’s Coma is officially 1/5 of the way through, and I’m still enjoying it just as much as the idea I first came up with. Just writing without the constant need to self-edit or refer back to earlier in the story (due to some rather well-worked planning by yours truly) is a pleasure.
If I keep it up, at this rate I’m going to be done by part way through July! I might take a few breaks if it starts getting stressful, but knowing me, I’ll likely just crack on with it and do some first-glance editing. I’m not expecting it to be perfect, but from flicking back through the book so far, I only found one glaring mistake, which is always good!
The best part about being this far in is that I’m really getting into the actual story now; things have built up and now it’s time for the challenges to come into play. These challenges won’t exactly be the most action-packed, but I’m hoping I can make them exciting and interesting enough for you to enjoy.
I’ve also had a few basic ideas about what I’m going to do with my cover. This is the provisional one so far, but it’s a far cry from what I’ve got planned in my head. I’m thinking I may put it out to vote on my Facebook page, and see what you guys think once I’ve made a few variations.
Anyway, I’ll keep at it! Wish me luck!
