NaNoWriMo Wrap-Up

NaNoWriMo is now behind us. Actually, it’s been behind me for nearly two weeks, but for most people it has just passed. I went in with a goal of 100k in 17 days, thinking that 6k per day would be totally doable. And it would’ve been, if I hadn’t been so stuck on the end product of my book that I began to hate the writing process. So about halfway through that, with my novel, The Shadow Raven, at about 33k, I switched to short stories. I decided to write short stories for my friends and family for Christmas, so I started working on those instead of TSR, because TSR needed a break.

Altogether, with The Shadow Raven, various short stories, and blog posts, I met the normal goal of 50k. So much for doubling it, huh? But that’s still 50,000 words I didn’t have, my novel is about a quarter of the way done (ish), and I have a couple of completed short stories, several finished blog posts, and a couple more short stories in the works. So I’m disappointed I didn’t reach 100k, but I’m happy with the words I do have. :)

How about you? If you did NaNoWriMo last month, how did you do? I’d love to hear about it down in the comments.

  1. I only reached 8,159 words. :P I didn’t even get a fifth of the way through! Oh well. You know what they say: Whether you reached 50K or not, you still have more words now than you did before. :)
