Camp NaNo – April 2013 – Week 1 Recap

2013-Participant-Campfire-Circle-BadgeYup, it’s Camp NaNo time!

I’m not starting a new project, I’m instead working on finishing the final touches of  Catalyst.

So, basic stats:

Starting word count on March 31: 55,380
Word count @ end of Week 1: 57,638
Total words written so far: 2,258

So basically I’ve written in a week what I would normally write in 2 days for NaNo >_<.
