This is it. The finish line. That purple bar. This thread is for celebration. Who else has finished an entire novel?

Congratulations! :D I may have accepted the fate that I won't get to reach 50K in time because writing is also my work so when I get the chance to write the novel, I'm too tired.

@Alef Magnus, Don't give up! There's still nearly 1/3 of the month left!

@shnuffeluv, Currently at 20,000 words. Any tips on how you got to 50K ahead of time? :)

@Alef Magnus, On my days off I found a comfy seat and typed until time became meaningless XD

@shnuffeluv, haha yeah no other way than to just actually write it then.

I'm not even close to 50 K, sadly. Better luck next year.

Neither am I. I got bogged down with school this year. But at least my story got started!

I've accepted the fact that I probably won't make it to 50K, the least I can do is get past 25K. Had to focus more on work and earn money. I've never gone this far in writing so there's that achievement I guess.

@Ari-Ink98, Yeah, if it weren't for Penana, I wouldn't have gotten as far in my story.

@Musesation, I'm the same. I did better this year than I did last. It was nice doing it as a community. I'll try again next year but I really don't see it going much better. :p

@Ari-Ink98, This was my first nanowrimo year so I guess that's what I would call my baseline. I feel the same! Piles of assignments and exams happen in November for me and I don't see that changing any time soon...

@Musesation, Same, this month has been hectic! I have a ridiculous amount of homework, I've been prepping for finals for the last 2 weeks, and I had to memorize six pages worth of classical music and perform it. I barely have time to sleep, let alone write!

@Ari-Ink98, That does sound crazy. Good luck on your performance!

@Ari-Ink98, I'm going to need that luck!

You guys can reach your goals, even if they aren't going to hit 50k! I believe in you!

I did not make 50k mark this year. Working two jobs sort of halted all of my writing. I got pretty far, well into 30,000's. i stopped posted though due to some issues with the plot. :D

Anyone else plan on continuing their NaNo stories after November? :D
Musesation
Musesation3 years ago
@Stefani Michelle, I'm actually thinking of rewriting the entire thing XD
Stefani Michelle

@Musesation, That is my plan also! As I got about 25,000 words in the whole thing turned into a completely different beast, so I plan on putting it on the shelf and go back to rewrite it. :) I love my characters too much to not continue the story.
