Title: NaNoWriMo
Post by: moonangel on November 03, 2016, 01:29:38 PM
Anyone doing it this year?

I'm going to try to finish it this year.  Last year I only got to 20K.  I'm working on the same story so I actually just have 30K words to go but still, it's not easy.  It's a lot of fun though.

If you are doing it too, let me know your name and I'll add you to my buddy list.

I'm just over 46K words but here's a screenshot of this past Sunday.  I was so happy to pass the 40k threshold.  It felt amazing.

I am so nervous.  Today is the final day to hit 50k words.  I'm only 700+ words to the finish line and I'm so afraid to open Word.  Why?

I was mistaken about today being the last day.  It's actually tomorrow but I hit my number today!

Here's what my desktop looked like earlier.  My story has something to do with some of the elements on the Periodic table so I was doing research on it.  I also did some other researching too.  The researching takes the most time.

Here's my 50K submission validation!

Now that NaNoWriMo is done, I have one more month to get an extra 20K in.  That should finish off my novel.

I am so thankful for NaNoWriMo.  It really pushed me.

Thanks, lilly!  Give it a try this November.  It's a challenge for sure but really worth it.

It is tedious but fulfulling when the creative and analytical mind collides! I've been researching a certain concept for far too long I doubt I have any hope of finding anything else useful --then one day, serendipitousl y, I met something close to the source that my hope rekindled. I had bugs, like headlights, picking at my brains for days afterwards.
