I have joined the winners’ circle! My story is only just now getting started, however. My characters have sought the advice of a wise older character and are armed with the knowledge they need to begin their quest. At this rate, the story will not be over until it gets to 100,000 words, and who knows when that will happen. But I’m glad to have filled in more blanks in the timeline of my series.
If I am not mistaken, this is the only NaNoWriMo where I have written at least 1,667 words every day. On Fridays, I’m normally too tired to do much of anything, so I usually skip writing and do double the daily word count on Saturday. This time, I didn’t do that. It is very easy to write 1,667 words of rough draft every day, especially when you repeat the mantra “This sucks, but I’ll fix it later” over and over. On the plus side, this will make my normal goal of 500 words a day seem very achievable once I get back to it. 🙂
Congratulations to all the other winners!
