NaNoWriMo 2017 – WINNER

winner-congrats

 

That’s right folks. I did it. I completed my first NaNoWriMo. Official final NaNo word count is 53,200. I have already dove into editing and am really loving it. I’ve heard from others that editing is terrible and difficult but so far I far prefer it to drafting. The tweaking, adding little bits, correcting things that went a little off in drafting…for me it is fun!

Did you participate in NaNoWriMo this year? How did you do? Talk to me!

I set my goal for the standard 50,000 words. This is my first dive into the NaNoWriMo pool and I’d like to share updates on my progress periodically with you lovely folks.

Daily Goal

1,667 words

Reached Today

1,814

Reached Total for NaNoWriMo

1,814

Book Total

9,003

Now, I will admit that this is a novel I started on prior to NaNoWriMo so my book total will be different than my NaNoWriMo total. I love writing and I truly hope to have this first draft completed by the end of the month.

I wish any of you participating the best of luck and feel free to share you progress with me! I can be found here on my blog as well as on Twitter (@literaryweaponry).
