The End of Camp NaNoWriMo

My end word total for my Camp NaNoWriMo project:

32,098 words

My goal had been 30,000 but in hindsight I actually think I could have tried to push myself and tried a bigger target. In November the goal is 50,000 and with how my story was going and how much time I had to write, I think 50,000 would have been a more decent goal during isolation. So far my 30,000 words are only just scratching the surface of my story!

May will now be spent writing even more of this story. I am not going to set myself any word count goals, as Camp NaNo made me realise that I focus more on the word count than I do on the actual story itself. If it takes me 100,000 words then so be it, so long as my story is well rounded, well written and a true journey for the reader. So my goal for May will now be to finish my story – and by that I mean have all of the main plot points written so that June can then be spent editing and rearranging the story to make sure it flows as it should.

How did you guys all do with CampNaNoWriMo? What was your end total and what are your next steps with your story? Let me know in the comments as I always love to see how everyone else tackles these big challenges.
