I finished! I made it to 50,017 words. I’m so excited and relieved. It was a wonderful experience, but like most things you learn from it hurt a little. My brain is mush. It’s like my brain was putty, then it was left out in the sun and it shriveled and is no longer useable.

I have 33,006 words written as of today. I feel like I’m at the end of a marathon that I’ve been sprinting through and I didn’t save any energy for the end. I’ll finish but this is the struggle.

This is the point in the project where I become convinced that it’s not an interesting story and switch to a different project or something along those lines, but this time I have a deadline. Things I didn’t plan for are happening and things I thoughtContinue reading “NaNo Update”
The novel is coming along great. I’m all done with the first act and almost done with the second act. I’m not writing linear, but I’m not jumping around that much. I finished yesterday at 17,853 words. I’m trying to gain ground, it’s looking more possible to end the story in 32,147 words than it didContinue reading “NaNoWriMo Update “
My husband and I saw Spectre and heard our baby’s heartbeat. All I have to do now is get my word count in and I’ll be all set.

I’m learning so much from this process. I usually write linear, but with the whole sprint writing of it all, I don’t let myself stare at the screen. If I get stuck I move to another scene. I’m finding it to be useful in story development as well as word count. I also don’t pauseContinue reading “NaNoWriMo Update”
