NaNoWriMo: My Day 13

29 Nov

I AM DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Done done done! I went to a Write-In today, unfortunately my first one this month, but it pushed me over the edge. I needed to do one hour and fifteen minutes of work and I managed just that before my battery (again) died. I think there’s something with a Windows 10 download that’s eating into my battery life. I’m not a fan.

I got to page 63 (from the second draft, a total of 119 pages). Yes, I’ll concede that this is only 13 pages further than I was three days ago BUT I’ve added one big scene and I’m in the middle of adding another! I love actually writing as opposed to editing and word-smithing a bit.

I’m at 52891 words (from 52962 in D2) which shows you all my progress! I’m almost back to where the original manuscript was and I’ve got a lot of things to add and parts to change based on what I’m adding. It’s a whole bunch of editing that I’m super excited about!

Really, this is my ‘winning’ post. I averaged at least 30 minutes every day. I hope to keep working on it for a while longer, powering through to the end with this round of edits. I’ve enjoyed it a lot. I’ve got another writers’ retreat coming up that will give me some time but for now, I want to catch up on my blog posts: you all are my most loyal fans rightย now.

Until next time, write on.

You can follow me on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. I’m available via email at And as always, feel free to leave a comment!

    Woohoo! Congratulations!
    I have a couple thousand more to reach my actual goal, but I’ll get there soon enough.
