NaNoWriMo ends!

NaNoWriMo ended tonight with November. I did not make it to 50,000 words, but I gave it a pretty good try. Although my word count was frozen at 40,139, I actually had 41,706 at midnight — I just arrived at the site a little too late to update and validate my word count.

My novel is far from done — I didn't put an ending on it yet, and I have some more of the middle to write as well — so I'll still be working on it for a while. I just finished writing another thousand words, which brings my total word count (including the 3700 words I wrote earlier this year) to 46,440. I want to encourage myself to continue writing even though NaNoWriMo is over, so I'll continue posting word counts here until I finish the first draft.

Here's hoping I'll get better at working on it every day post-NaNo than I was during November!

I think after the holidays, we need to do Saturday write-ins...at least once or twice a month. That way, we both HAVE to write. ;o)

Great idea, Kathy! I'd love that!
