How did it go, WriMos? Did you make your word count goal, whatever it was? (Winners aren’t only at 50,000, no matter what the site might say.)

Then congrats!

If you didn’t make it, don’t feel too bad. Practicing writing–ten words or ten thousand, makes you a better writer. And it’s more than you had in October!

I didn’t meet my lofty goal of actually finishing a draft, but I’m going to carry on, and I will do so. (I’ve said it on the internet, so it must be true!)

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    I second the thought about winners. Anyone who wrote more than they did in October is a winner.

  2. I managed to bang out about 40k words, which I’m pretty happy with! Not quite enough to win, but definitely more than I thought I’d accomplish — so, huzzah!

    • I know not meeting the goal is technically not winning, but it seems to me not everyone can be one of those writers who produces a book every eight months.

      Nor should we want to be!

      • I mean, it would be NICE to produce a book every 8 months! It’s just not exactly feasible. I might try it with a trashy romance novel, just to see if I can handle the turnaround. Hmm …
