NaNoWriMo Day 26: The finish line

This entry was posted by on Wednesday, 26 November, 2008 at

No Time for a real post. But I do have time for this:

50,205 words in the bag.

Yup. I “won”. And by won, they mean I completed 50k+ words in under 30 days to form a fiction novel first rough draft. A VERY rough draft, I’ll admit.

This doesn’t mean I am done working on it, rather it means that now I get to -really- dig into to what I actually wrote and massage it to make this fiction novel readable. I honestly am not even the least bit happy with what I created here, so a LOT of editing is in my future. But what I AM happy with is the fact that I was able to produce 50k+ words in under thirty days and keep them all focused on a basic story line.

I promise you all this: when I have a moment, either over the vacation days ahead or possibly into next week, I WILL post the Title, Synopsis, and Excerpt. **Edited 10-23-2013: I didn’t live up to my promise. It seems that after I went back to edit/review what I’d written, I was still so disgusted with the result that I filed it away and forgot about it. I did try and edit it in 2011 and found my disgust hadn’t decreased, so I refiled it away again. If I’m lucky, I may be able to pull out a short story from it sometime in 2028. **

For now, just revel in my joy that I’m DONE!

  5. I did enjoy my holiday, thanks. And I’ve gotten a fair amount of writing done tonight. The battery is about to go dead, and I really should get some sleep … but I’m hoping for tomorrow and the rest of the weekend to be as productive. I’m confident I can make the 50K!
