Well, I have some bad news.
I’m not going to be a NaNoWriMo “winner” this year. You have to finish in order to win… and in order to finish you have to write 50,000 words in 30 days (this is probably old news to most of you.)
A few weeks ago, I said, that I was going to use NaNoWriMo to work on my book that I’ve been writing for the last three-ish years. It was kinda of rocky going for a while, with more days of no writing than there were writing. But this week while on my stay-cation, I hunkered down and worked diligently on the book and had three days were I wrote extremely large numbers of words. And still I’m not going to be able to finish NaNoWriMo…
Because I finished my book.
Turns out, there were only 34,366 words left to write.
This is, of course just the first draft and now I have to go through and edit, so this project is far from over… But…
I finished my book!
