I did it!

2013-Winner-Square-Button

I met my 50,000 word goal on November 18th. As of today’s validation, I have 62,481 words in my NaNo novel!

It’s still not quite done. There’s lots that I’m working on to get the first draft finished, and then of course, there’s editing and revising and all that good stuff. But I took the challenge and I met it, and that is absolutely thrilling.

And I’ll let you in on a little secret: I actually did it in much less than 18 days, too. You see, I started out working on one idea, but it ran into some major issues about a week in. So, then I switched to the one I actually finished on November 7th. So, I actually wrote the 50,000 words in just 11 days, and all 62,481 words in 18 days.

And now, before I lose momentum…back to work!
