Camp NaNo update

Progress on the Camp NaNoWriMo front -- I have completed chapter 10, and am moving on to the last two. So far, I'm 11K words up, which brings the total word count excitedly close to 80K.

For anyone who may not know, this is in-line with the average count of most novels. If any of you are curious, there's a wonderful diagram courtesy of the Book Genome Project that gives breakdowns by genre and answers questions about the frequency of first or third person use within those genres.


  1. 80K words? Aye, aye, aye! I hope things are going well for you in the writing world.

    1. Yes m'am! I'm now up to 86.3K :) It's a glorious feeling.



Ash Litton

Ash Litton is a writer and lover of sci-fi, fantasy, and all things fictional. She is the author of Thoroughbred, Evening Hallow, Comeuppance, and Cabover Cabaret, and works on other Appalachian Dream Tales between her ongoing novel projects. She's also written No Diet, No Surgery, No Sweat, an ebook chronicling her weight-loss journey.

When she's not writing, she's drawing, and when she's not doing either of those, she's dreaming up new projects to work on. Born and raised in rural West Virginia, Ash has always wondered what things lay hidden in the hills around her. She attended West Virginia University, where she studied the English language before returning home to her family in rural West Virginia.
