I am super, super, uber excited.



In other words, I met my word count goal.

True, I changed my goal from 50k to 20k. But I wrote 20,o00 words in a month! 20,001 if you ask the NaNo website, 20,070 if you ask our version of Microsoft Word.

I am incredibly proud of myself. Not only did I survive, but I actually wrote 20,000 words that (hopefully) someday will be good enough for people to actually read!

As is, it needs editing. I realize this.

But that can’t stop my optimism for long.

In case you’re wondering, no, I didn’t finish my novel. Far from it. I barely started Part Two. But I did meet my goal. And that’s pretty awesome too!

This is definitely the most planning and work I have EVER put into a story. Or, like, anything else.

In any case, I can now tell people that I won NaNoWriMo.

This has been a crazy month. I can’t wait to rest a bit. And keep writing. And editing. Hmm.

Over and out,

    Congratulations! You still did better than I did. Of course, the point of NaNoWriMo isn’t the word count, it’s the experience and the excuse to get going on a novel. At least, that’s what us losers tell ourselves…

      Haha yeah, it definitely is a good way to get you started. And the point is, you have SOMETHING to show for it 🙂
