50,020 in 13 days!

I managed it despite working doubles on seven of those days. Most days I made sure I did no less than 2K. Had one 7,500+ word day and another near 7K day last week. And today? 9,500+. My new record. I am so amazed with myself, and proud. 10K is now totally doable for me.

Now to actually finish the first draft. Tomorrow I need to think about that one, figure out where to keep the story going given what I've written so far, and then go from there. Then I'll deal if I realize the draft will be "done" before November 30th. Maybe I'll add to my word count by working on another project, but only claim the actual story word count in the end. The goal will be to test how many fiction words I can write in one month.

And now I'm off to bed. Whew! :)

*joins you in completion party* Well done! It's a great feeling, isn't it? I'm just re-editing now.

Thank you. I'll be in editing mode next month, but I also have OTHER stuff to edit. Maybe now I'll feel like I have the time to do just that... if I'm willing to let things be late. *uncertain look*

Ah, fair enough! And considering what you've just achieved, if you can afford to let things be late, I would give yourself a break. *g*

(I had to edit as I was going because it was a fic I was putting up.)

Wow, congratulations! I juuuuuuust reached 20K and am still 5K behind, ugh. :S This is shaping up to be the worst NaNo out of the 11 (counting Camps) I've done so far. :( This is my third time to switch ideas *facepalm* and this one HAS to be the one I take all the way to the 30th, no matter what. :S But I'm still going to try to make it. *fingers crossed* If I don't, well, at least I'll know I went down trying. ;)

Huge congrats again, that's really a major, major accomplishment! \o/ *hugs* ♥♥♥

Ooh... That was sort of how I felt at the end, when I had to jump to a THIRD story to keep the words coming. I feel for you. Hope something good came out of NaNo.

*hugs* And thanks.
