NaNoWriMo- Day 16

16 Nov

Daily Word Count: 8,013 (highest ever!)

Total Word Count: 51,908 (YES I WON!!!!!!!!)

How I’m feeling: Let’s just say my back hurts. And my fingers hurt. But my pride is out of this world! I’m so excited. I’ve been at the mid-way madness event that NaNoWriMowtown is putting on and it’s been such a great environment to write in. Everyone here clapped for me when I hit 50K. It was awesome.

What I’ll do with the rest of my day: Well my husband is trying to have a guys night so what I hoped might be celebratory might end up being me reading alone in my apartment. Somewhat anti-climactic. I’m a little irritated, don’t worry.

Anyone out there met their goal? Who’s the closest to 50K? Let me know your count, Reader!

Until next time, write on.

      I am more than okay with that. We’re throwing an impromptu party tonight if you want to come!
      And congratulations on meeting your goal and having to expand it already!

    Fantastic job!! Seriously, you wrote a novel in half a month – that’s insane. 🙂 Rest your tired hands and rejoice in your victory today!

      Thank you so much! I learned a lot about myself as a writer during this project and I’m so glad I did it. I’ve got a blog to return to so I can only relax for so long haha.



  1. Book Club Reflection: Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides | Taking on a World of Words - November 20, 2013

    […] One of the names that stuck was the Obscure Object, the girl that Callie falls in love with at the age of 14. The story behind the name is almost more interesting than the character herself. Eugenides and his friend at Brown had a crush on the same girl and would refer to her as the Obscure Object. You can read the full story in this article. […]
