NaNoWriMo: My Day 20 2016- DONE!

29 Nov

I’m calling it quits for this year. Goals met!

Today’s writing time (30 goal): 80
This Week’s writing time (120 goal): 180
Total time for the month (630 goal): 765


Daily, weekly, and monthly goals all met. I got through the full read through today and I did a Grammarly check. Apparently I put too many commas in sentences. If you don’t use Grammarly, I highly suggest it (mostly because it’s free). I started a new round of editing that I’m looking forward to. I’m putting the dialogue my characters say into Excel, using a different sheet for each character. This way, I can see if my characters have consistent speaking patterns and I’ll notice when they say something out of character. So far, I’m learning a lot about my side characters!

I’m really excited about how this month’s gone. It’s gotten me really excited about my story again and I hope it gets me working on it a bit more in the next few months before school starts up again. I know it can be hard around the holidays, but it might also be a welcome break! I hope it will at least.

I’ll do a full review post in the next few weeks.

Until next time, write on.

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.
