NaNoWriMo Day 30: Look What I Did!!!


I ended NaNo with another win… this time with the end of a sex scene. Lol. Talk about going out with a ‘bang’!

In all seriousness, this was my first year doing NaNoWriMo with a full time job, and it wasn’t as hard as I feared it would be, but I have had to neglect a lot of other hobbies to make it work. I really struggled for most of the middle, as you see from my progress chart. I have no idea how people with families AND jobs do this shit every year. I see it all the time, people talking about their kids and their job while NaNo-ing and I’m just like, “HOW?!?!”

Unlike last year’s NaNo story, that I hated and still loathe to this day, this one I plan to finish, like my first year. I’m really into this story and 50k is really only MAYBE half of this story. It’s science fiction so all the world building takes up time and space (lol). I’ll keep you guys updated to the progress of Into the Beyond as I continue it in the future.

Thank you guys so much for keeping up with my progress this year, and I wish you all luck in finishing up your NaNoWriMo tonight (if you haven’t already) as well!

NaNoWriMo Day 29: I Really Wanted To Finish Early


The goal was to catch up and finish tonight, and if not before midnight, then write on until I had to go to sleep and finish or at least get it down to a few hundred words.

As you can see, I didn’t finish tonight. That still leaves writing after midnight and finishing that last 2,000 words easily, right?

Yeah, well, I’m so sleepy tonight – the ONLY TIME EVER – that my eyelids have been drooping as I write this.

Since the clock struck midnight, I’ve gotten it down to 1,659 words left. I can knock those out easily tomorrow, but tonight, I have to throw in the towel.

Even if you’re further away than me, DON’T GIVE UP HOPE! If people can win NaNo in the first week, you can write that last 20k in the last 24 hours with no problem whatsoever!!!

NaNoWriMo Day 24: I Think I’m Gonna Win This Thing


It seems that once I got ahead, that made it able for me to stay ahead. Also, I’ve started writing parts that are more personal and hint at a romance coming now. It only took 40,000 words to get there, but again, this is science fiction. This story won’t end at 50k, lol.

How are you doing? Is your word count reflecting your actual story work, or are you like I am so often and just really verbose.
