Camp NaNo Update: Week 3

Target word count: 37,096
Current word count: 27,932
Current chapter: 12/13

I’m still woefully behind – further behind than I was before, in fact – and starting to feel like I’m running out of time, but I’m sure you’d rather hear the good news: I’ve found my motivation! I’m enjoying writing a bit more now, and what I am writing is flowing a bit better. Despite having gotten past the halfway mark in terms of wordcount, though, I’m nowhere near the halfway point in my story.

Nevertheless, I shall not give up!

I’m going on holiday tomorrow, and it’s really crept up on me, so I’m rather busy and unfortunately probably won’t write anything/much today. Maybe I can catch up on the place at 6 tomorrow morning… Also, I’m not taking my laptop, and will be continuing writing on a different laptop. I’m going to miss my own laptop. As for the software, I was about to spend a paragraph explaining the problem I’ve been having trying to transfer the yWriter5 files, but while writing this post, I’ve been tinkering with it and I think I’ve worked it out (in fact, there may be two ways; I emailed the developer an hour or so and just got a response, with a solution that’s different to the one I just thought of). I’ll talk about that separately, though. As for¬†FocusWriter, attaching the file to an email didn’t work (apparently there wasn’t an appropriate program on which to open the file or something, even though I downloaded FocusWriter on the other laptop) but simply copying-and-pasting worked. The customised theme I use on FocusWriter for writing Barnabus’ Balloons was easy to transfer, by exporting it from the theme menu-thing, emailing it across, and then importing it.

Anyway. Back to last-minute-packing, trying to work yWriter5 and writing, methinks!
