DAY 25 HAS ARRIVED!
We’re in the very last days until the end of NaNoWriMo. If you haven’t reached that 50,000 words yet, there is still five more days to get there. If you have, CONGRATULATIONS! You did it!
After I hit the 50,000 word limit, I decided to keep writing. I finished up the story, which is invariably shorter than I was hoping it would, and stopped at that point. I have a lot to edit, a lot to sort out, and I know of a few problems I will need to fix once I hunker down and get to the nitty-gritty details.
I was, admittedly, a bit disappointed about the word validating. I know some people didn’t really like it, but I kind of like obfuscating my work and throwing it into the word validater (apparently spelled incorrectly and not a word, oh well) just to have it officially counted. I updated my final word count based on scriveners project statistics and official total from start to finish. While I’m sure there would be some discrepancy between NaNoWriMo’s count and Scriveners, I still reached around 67,000 words. I really can’t complain with that total.
I’m happy that I completed the story, and will be taking a bit of break before I print it off and start editing it. I also have another manuscript that I need to finish editing as well….but as it’s total is over 800 pages and I’ve barely scratch the surface on it, I might need to work on something a bit more compressed in comparison. We’ll see.
Anyway, five more days NaNoWriMo writers! Don’t give up, keep writing. And if you’re anything like me right now, super sick, then I hope you all feel better soon!
