I posted the last day of November about successfully completing NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, by writing 50,000 words of the novel I’ve been working on. I was what we call a NaNo Rebel; instead of strictly following the rules about starting a brand new project on November 1, I chose to work on a book I already had in progress, though of course I counted only words written in November toward my goal.
I finished the month with a total of 53,556 words written in November. At the time, I thought it would take me another day or so to fill in some missing passages and move some scenes around, and then I would have a first draft. In reality, that process is proving to be more time-consuming. I’m on three days and counting. So I’m still working on that first draft, but hope to be finished soon.
