NaNoWriMo Day 19&20 Winner! 80K Achieved!
Now is the time I start to realize how far I have come with this month and the mammoth task that I took on by trying to write more than the recommended words and attend every write-in that I scheduled for nearly everyday this month. I am proud of what I have accomplished so far but there is still the final third to contend with and despite my utter exhaustion this will have to be a very productive ten days.
I have reached the total amount of words I put down last year with plenty of time to spare. I hope this trend
Sure there are some over explained moments, scenes that last entirely too long, extra adjectives, and unimportant flashbacks that serve no purpose for the plot but that is for another month when I will edit this behemoth. For now, I keep pushing forward. I hope to get one hundred or even one hundred and twenty thousand words.
The write-ins have been extra fun but not so productive. We have gotten to know each other and have so much to talk about since we are all readers and writers. I few of the more skeptical members have been worried but I try to stay positive and show them that writing can get done in public areas. That being said, I would like to get back to my usual routine of writing in private areas by myself.
I also hope to read more soon. Writing in a bookstore makes me always buy more books and I have no time to read.
Only ten days left and several of the days are the Thanksgiving holiday. I will try to get to it while everyone is with their families and put down even more words. Here is to a strong finish!
