And now we are done! (As of tonight, of course. You still have several hours to type as fast as humanly possible, if you need them.)
Overall, I did okay. I started on track, slowly pulled ahead, and then fell behind on my daily word count, but by that point I had enough padding to still make my goal. Ah, how that little diagonal line mocks you! I had to go back to the beginning twice, beefing up my scenes instead of writing for conciseness, which I sometimes get carried away with.
As I write this, Friday night, I have ‘won,’ with about 51,500 words. I have ten pages left to go over, and then I’ll take a stab at writing the final scenes that I struggled with previously. I want to see how far I can get before time is up, since 50,000 words is really only the beginning of a book.
Did you make it, fellow writers?
Even if you didn’t finish, let’s take a moment to celebrate what you did achieve. You wrote stuff, go you! 🙂
