It Never Rains but It Pours

I hit 20,000 words on my sequel today! 20,000 words! Words are flowing fast and free, and characters are dropping like flies... or something like that.

Camp NaNoWriMo Day 5: 2,466 words. Done.

Camp NaNoWriMo Day 4

Still that nasty real-life stuff getting in the way. A mere 1,046 words from me today, and I'm about to crash in bed. Goodnight.

Real Life is Boring

So boring that I got a measly amount of writing done today. Wait for tomorrow to get some actual news. :)

You See What Happens When You Challenge Me?

I have this problem when it comes to writing: I'm insanely competetive. And when someone challenges me to a word war (timed writing race), ain't nobody going to stop me.

That said, many word wars over the last two days have led to a complete 16,269 words. Yes, that is an uneven number. No, I'm not writing any more today.
I was going to stop at 15,000, but what can I say? Word War!
During these word wars. Marie Wench, my main character, has sailed across an ocean. She's met her twin brother face to face for the first time in their lives.
And she's still alive. For the moment.

What about you? What are you insanely competitive about? What challenges you the most?

Camp NaNoWriMo Day 1

Camp Day 1 is over and done...
Well, sort of. I probably have time to write some more words, but after 11,651 words today- yeah, you got that right- I'm ready for a break.
What did I learn today? That characters sometimes take their stories into their own hamds, doing things the author never imagined them to do. *hinthint, General Raphael*

What about you? If you're participating in Camp NaNoWriMo, how did you do?

If not, what fictional character (by which author) surprised you? Was it in a good way or a bad one?
