We’re nearing the end of NaNoWriMo with just three days to go! We wanted to know, what’s the plan for your story? Will you keep writing into December? Are you happy with how NaNo went this year?
Mark – 37,151. “With more than 12,000 words to write over the next three days, I look back at how I was able to pull that off on the very last day last year and am confident I’ll be able to make it happen, ideally, by the 29th (fingers crossed) – once I hit 50,000 I most certainly won’t be done, as the book is looking like it’ll be closer to the 70,000 to 80,000 range, as a shorter novel. I’m pleased with the fact I was able to make more time this year earlier in the month (rather thanhave to cram it all in after 10 days of absolutely no productivity in 2014), and also happy with the story and the interesting characters that I was able to unroll and discover while in the process of writing.”
Chrissy – 27,500. “I plan to keep writing this story – I really hope I can remain inspired by the NaNo creed to set aside time to do something creative every day. I feel like I’m just now gaining momentum with it and think I will see it through to the end. I’m very proud of getting this far this year!
Denar – Around 6,000. – “I will keep writing from now on. It was my first time writing in my life. I had a great experience, flexing new muscles.”
Wendy – 5,400. “Will I keep writing? This time yes, I really want to finish this story. I’m hoping to make good use of my Christmas holidays. Am I happy with how NaNo went? No, because I did a lot better last year, but I’m happy I tried again.”
Sophie – 6,100. – “I reached 6,100 words, which is 6,100 words I didn’t have at the beginning of November. I’m definitely going to keep writing into December (and January…) until this book is done.
Bessie – 2,757. – “I really ran out of steam, just like last year. I did finish my book in December last year though, so hopefully I do the same this year. I like the story so far so I’m eager to see it through to the end. I’m a little disappointed that I couldn’t keep my daily writing streak up, but I know that I wouldn’t have written much – if anything – if I wasn’t participating, so I’m happy with the progress I’ve made.
Sean – Around 2,000. – “I sort of got busy with other things and only completed 2,000 words which is a bit pathetic, but I do plan on revisiting the novel later when I have more time. Probably over the holidays in December. I would have liked to work more on the project, but feel this was still a good experience as I got writing, I now realize how difficult it is to write a novel and am sure I will do better next time.”
How did your NaNoWriMo go? Did you hit the 50,000 word mark? What did you learn?
