Camp Nanowrimo (Again)

Working on Camp Nanowrimo again this summer has been like pulling teeth.  I gave myself a smaller goal than in April (30K instead of 50K), but it's still been rough.  I'm working on a short story for a proposed anthology a friend in my work writers' group is contemplating, which on the one hand is nice, because it's giving me the opportunity to work on something new.  On the other hand, it has been going incredibly slowly.  As in, I'm not willing to update my stats, slowly.  I decided to start working on it long-hand, as I've found that to be a way of getting through writer's block in the past.  It's helping some, and it means that I literally have no way of knowing what my word count looks like, which does take some of the pressure off.  It means that I'll be typing like the wind at the end of the month so I can get something official, but there are worse things in the world.

At any rate, I'm still here, still writing.  I hope all of your creative pursuits are going as well as you want them to go.  What are you up to?
