NaNo Update - I'm Finished (for real this time!)

I finished writing 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo (!!!  I actually have 50,252 words.  :)  I haven't even thought of a name for my second book, but I can tell you I already love it and the characters.  I'm definitely planning to edit it and not just put it in my throw away folder (that I never actually delete).  In fact since there are still eight days left of November I'm going to keep writing.  I have no idea how much I will actually get written, but I'm having so much fun with this story I'm going to keep going until November ends or maybe even beyond.  :)  

So my first story was 26,573 words and my second one is 23,679 words so far.  The second one was so much more fun to write.  :)  I'm definitely not quitting now!  

I hope everyone who is trying NaNo this year is doing well and I wish you success in completing your novel in thirty days.  :)  It's late and I'm cross eyed from staring at the computer screen for so long, so I'm going to bed.  Night!


  1. I am jelly!


    I've done soooo much writing this month and I don't know my word count yet but I feeel so abysmally behind lol.

  2. Aww you might want to check it. They have the word validator up or you can use something like I thought I was way behind too, but was pleasantly surprised by how much I had written when I checked it. Don't give up! You can still do it. :D

  3. I'm about 9000 words from the end. I made it my goal this year to actually reach 50,000 - my previous story kind of died at 32000. I don't know if I will attempt to publish this one, but I'm proud of having written it!

  4. Congratulations! I might be able to start up working on my novel again this week, because school is out, but I've still got a ton of homework and lots of company coming over. November has always been one of my busiest months.

  5. That's awesome Sam! I hate when my stories fizzle out on me early lol. That's why I did two this years. I looked it up and it's not against the rules for NaNo!

    NuzMuz, I hope you get to start working on it again. November has normally been busy for me in the past too which is why I didn't even try last year, but this year it wasn't, so it worked out well. :)
