It's OVER!

Just a quick check in on the last day of NaNo! I made it to my 60,000 word goal, and
as of right now, 10.30 pm, my final word count for November is 68,701!!!

Yay, and I'm almost finished the book. I've got a baby to get born and a sub-plot to wrap up and that should do it!

Then I get to start the editing process! That may have to wait for January while I catch up on my housework, and oh ya, get ready for Christmas!

Hope everyone else had success! Or at least learned some valuable lessons!

Woo-Hoo!!! Celebrating today because I reached the 50,000 word mark for NaNo way early!

And I loved the scene I wrote today ! I can't believe I have written 187 pages of a new book in 20 days. Unbelievable! Nora Roberts move over!!! LOL.

Now my new goal is to hit 60,000 words by November 30th.

Think I can do it?

Just over mid-mark update!

Taking a bit of time out today. Actually met friends for coffee after supper. And knowing I was going out, I had to get my word count in before I left - which I did!

I'm thrilled to announce that today I surpassed 40,000 words!!!

That's the great news. The other side of the coin is I need to work out some plot issues. Hopefully tomorrow before I begin writing again!

But tonight I'm celebrating!

How's it going for you?

NaNo Update

Taking a quick minute to send an update on my NaNo progress!

So far, so great. I'm doing a little above the average daily word count. I've written 13,767 words or about 49 pages on my new story. And I'm really liking it. Not that I won't have to revise a lot later (have cheated just a little a tweaked a few scenes each day before I start my new stuff). But it's very freeing just writing on without polishing as I go.

It's only taking me about an hour a day to achieve my goal which is very doable!

All in all, a great learning tool!
