Time to Celebrate

I hit my NaNoWriMo goal today: 50,000 words, and with three days to spare. 

These last few days were a bit of struggle as I’ve hit a rough spot in my novel.  I need to move my characters through about 10 days of monotonous travel, but I’m not really sure how I want to do that, so I’ve been writing around and through it.  I’m sure I’ve written a lot of words that will wind up on the cutting room floor, but sometimes that’s part of the process of finding my way.  I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’m sure I will.

Good luck to those still working toward their own NaNoWriMo success.  You’ve still got three more days.

    Congratulations, and good luck figuring out what you want to do! I’ve completely given up on getting to 50k now. There’s no way I can write 30k+ words in three days, haha.

    • Thanks, and sorry to hear you won’t make your NaNoWriMo target this year. 20K is a decent start, however. Stick to that pace and in another 3-4 months you’ll have a finished novel draft. Good luck!
