The bullet journal, or as some would call “bujo”, is meant to be your best friend, the keeper of all of your lists, to help push you towards that certain goal. And as you may be able to guess, there are hundreds of different things to track out there (probably not literally, but you never know). Here’s a list of things you could possibly track in your bullet journal I’ve created based on what I’ve seen so far in the bullet journal world.
The first part of Camp National Novel Writing Month had been a great success for me with finishing the first part of my novel within the limit of 25,000 words I had given myself. Now more than halfway through Part 2, it’s safe to say that I’ve failed at my new goal of 20,000 words, and I’m okay with that. Does that mean I won’t finish my 2.2 Draft of Forgiven? Noperdoodles! It means I’m just taking a little break. We writers need that every now and then. (I sure as hell needed it after NaNoWriMo ’14…)
Alright guys, so in just about a half hour (for me), part 2 of Camp NaNoWriMo will start. That means I get to spend July writing my most favorite part of my novel and I must tell you guys, I’m pretty excited.
I’m not publishing this post/series to brag or be vain, or whatever. I’m publishing this for something more of a personal use. Something I can look back on later in the writing process of my novel. Like a little remembrance of some sort.
Chapter One: Overview
In about the seventh grade, when I first watched Ghost Rider and laid eyes on Blackheart played by Wes Bentley, the idea for the novel had first come to mind. A soul eater who falls for a human woman. At first, its name was Flashlight and looking at the very first draft of it (yes, I still have it), I can’t help but laugh. It’s amazing how far I’ve come with my writing. My main character’s name at the time was Novena and the villain (and her lover), Dark Heart.
I cut it close by finishing with 26,279 words, but I made it! Sadly, the chaos isn’t over just yet. I still have the part two session to get through.
Let the games begin because those first eleven chapters were just the beginning.
I honestly don’t really have much to say right now because it’s currently 6am and I had just stayed up three hours straight typing up the last of my chapters to finish the round.
Yes. I can now go sleep.
I DID IT. HOLY POOP.
Two days away from the end of the first writing session and I gotta say, I’m exhausted, partially burnt-out from all this writing going on, but excited. I know for a fact that as of this early morning, I have met my word count goal with a usual 2k-ish chapter ten and one hell of a long chapter eleven. Definitely more than 3,770 words there with those two chapters combined. Just have to type them up now and validate the wordcount on the website.
