I have won NaNoWriMo!
National Novel Writing Month is held around the world in many countries. Novelists, both aspiring and professional, commit to writing a target amount of words within the 30 days of November. The standard target is 50,000 words.
I took the opportunity to focus on my novel that had been in the pipeline for sometime, to use this to get those black splodges on the page, to get that first draft finally finished.
Today, on the 29th November 2013, I wrote my 50,027th word on the novel this month.
The first draft will be completed by the end of the year – it’s an epic fantasy, so there’s still some way to go – and members of the writers circle can anticipate being among the first readers. Lucky, lucky people!
