NaNo Oh No!

Wednesday, 28 November 2012

Well, I think it's safe to say I won't be winning NaNo this year. I've barely broke 25k and I can't be certain I'll get any more done this month. I have family coming back tomorrow night and staying through the weekend, so it's looking unlikely that I'll get anything done.

I'm glad I took part. And I'm pleased that I have a great start on my story. So it certainly was worth it. Not to mention the fact that I learned a lot about myself and my writing. I also got far enough in, that my story is begging to be finished. Now let me just say a quick prayer that at least some of it is useable.

I noticed a few purple, winner banners on my buddy list ( Jemi! ;-o). Man, am I jealous. I may have to give it another go next year. In the meantime I think I'm going to set up a group on Facebook to post goals and word counts so my CP and I still have a way to check in and be accountable.

I will finish this story by Christmas (or die trying).


  1. I got about 20,000 words done, so you are not the only one. November has been crazy. At least we got good starts! That's the bright side.

    1. Yeah. I am happy to have gotten that far. I was hoping to hit 30k so I'd be halfway at least, but it's unlikely I'll write nearly 4000 words by tomorrow. I have more family coming in. Oh well, it is a good start. My CP and I are going to start a group on Facebook to 'check in' with word counts if you are interested :-)
