A couple of weeks ago I did a NaNoWriMo 2015 mid-point update.
And I know you’ve all been losing sleep wondering if I managed to stick to my target to write an average of 1,000 words a day in November. Haven’t you? 😉
The good news is… *insert drumroll*
I did it! As you can see from my stats here below, I reached my goal by the skin of my teeth, but I did it.
I wrote even though there were days when I was tired and my brain wasn’t cooperating. As a result I am up to just under 80,000 words on the first draft of my second novel.
I’m now going to shift my focus to some further edits to book 1 (Art and Soul). I want to get it as perfect as I can in December and then send it to an editor in the New Year (I have a lot of commas to move and/or delete).
There you have it. I may not have “won” NaNoWriMo 2015 in the sense of writing 50,000 words in a month. But I achieved my own goal and didn’t quit, so I’m pretty pleased with myself (*smug face* and excuse to use the following image)…
Congratulations to everyone who “won” this November and to those who wrote anything at all. Writing isn’t as easy as it looks and life can conspire to keep you away from it. We should all be pleased with ourselves for getting any words down!
How did you NaNoWriMo go? Let me know!
