I Am A Winner! 50,000 Blasted!

Late yesterday afternoon, I blasted through my last 5,000 words for NaNoWriMo!

I received my certificate and online party from the guys overseas! It felt great to finish the first draft of my book!

Yes... my first draft.

During this month, I've not only finished the draft, I've also put up a cover picture and changed the title - twice!

So, how have you been doing with your NaNoWriMo?

Have you begun seeing the finish line on the horizon? If not, don't worry, you'll get there next year; or over the next few months. 

For this challenge, there are no failures, just people who love to write books - and isn't that the main thing here: too keep us writers on the ball and writing our fingers off?

It sure is! 

After my 3rd attempt at this challenge, I finally go to the 50,00 words with just 2 days to spare. Now... please do let us all know how you went on yours. Until my next post, happy reading and writing!

    1. Thank you! It's been fun getting in and finishing it this book this year; after the first couple of years where I didn't get to the 50,000 words.

      This makes me want to do NaNoWriMo even more.

      Now... to edit the darn thing. :D

    2. Editing, I would imagine to be sort of a let down after the high of finishing one's novel during NaNoWriMo!

    3. Not really... I get to go through my work and see where I made the mistakes and fix them up.

      It's like cleaning up a house when you've moved into it... you put in the finishing touches and polish up everything. You make the house a home - I make the piece of work a really good book. I enjoy that part of it.
