I finished my 50,000’th word today of “Lillie Among Thorns.” While I’m definitely doing a bit of a happy dance in completing on deadline – I still have a LOT of work to do.
For me, 50,000 words is good progress, but not yet a complete rough draft. That will happen around 80,000 words.
So I’ll keep trudging along and if I can maintain the same pace, get it completed before Christmas! (Dreaming…I know.)
Congrats to all the other NaNo-ers out there and to those who maybe didn’t get to finish – don’t worry about it. You write at your own pace and write what comes to your heart! That’s really the true spirit of NaNoWriMo anyway. Let your artistic nature roam free!
