NaNoWriMo: The Stunning Conclusion

November 30th, 2009 (10:36 pm)
accomplished

current mood: accomplished

With less than two hours left in the month, I'm publicly announcing that I do not get to do the Happy Purple Bar Dance of the NaNoWriMo winner. But I'm psyched anyway. I've written plenty of 50,000-word books in a month, so I didn't need to prove to myself that I could do it. In fact, I knew from the start that this particular month, it was not going to happen. I had too many other commitments that couldn't be set aside for thirty days.

I did meet my personal consolation goal of 25,000 words! As of this afternoon, I doubted that I would make even that, so I'm surprised and pleased, despite my lack of official purple-osity.

I'm feeling that the month has been a success. I started November 1 without a plot for my Stargate SG1 book, and now I have one. Yippee! And thanks to the impetus provided by NaNoWriMo, I have seven (rough) chapters. And I actually have worked through enough of a plot to outline the rest of the book.

Not sure if I'm going to hold tonight at my current word count of 25,629 words or keep writing until midnight. Either way, I'm feeling good about the month's work.

Word Count: 25,629
