IWSG: Reflections and Failures

IWSG Banner

I can’t believe April is finally over. I’ve been busy, busy, busy and now finals are starting up at college! And guess what today is? It’s the first Wednesday of the month so that means it’s time for a new Insecure Writer’s Support Group update. For today’s post, I’m sharing some good and bad news. I’ll start with the good.

A to Z Challenge Reflections

A to Z Reflection 2015

Good news is the A to Z Challenge has come to an end, and I actually finished the challenge on time this year. But the fun’s not over yet. It’s become a tradition at the end of the A to Z Challenge for everyone to reflect about their time blogging through the alphabet. It’s called the A to Z Blogging Challenge Reflection and there’s a brand new linky list for A-to-Zers to join.

Reflecting is basically a time for people to sum up their thoughts about the challenge and visit the blogs they’ve missed during April. If you haven’t read mine already, here’s my post Reflecting on the April A to Z Challenge 2015.

Camp NaNoWriMo Failure

Camp NaNo

Now for the bad news. As the title implies, I totally failed Camp NaNoWriMo last month. I mentioned in my last IWSG post that I planned to take on the A to Z Challenge and Camp NaNoWriMo in April. While I finished the A to Z Challenge, I came nowhere near my original goal of writing 50,000 words by April 30th with Camp NaNo.

I only wrote shy of 4,000 words. And, yes, I know that’s pathetic. But some words are better than no words, so I won’t cry too much. I’ll just try again for Camp NaNoWriMo in July. So, did anyone else try Camp NaNo last month? And was April a crazy month for you too?

By the way, you can come join the IWSG and gather courage, support, and virtual hugs from like-minded people. You can signup at the Insecure Writer’s Support Group website.

  1. I’m sending you a virtual HUG!!! You completed A-Z while in college? I’m beyond impressed! So you only got 4000 words in the NaNoWriMo, that’s 4000 more than without it! Good luck with your finals!
