I did it. After three failed November stories (although at least two of those I produced 30,000 words and did not feel like a failure), I have finally won NaNo. August Camp was a success for me. My final word count today was 50,171 words validated. And here it is, my first ever winner’s badge. What a great feeling.
Now all I have to do is actually finish the novel. Then it’s off to editing, maybe. Or maybe I’ll start on my November outline first. IDK. Hope everyone else is having as great a time as I have each year, and learning as much as I have as well. Happy Writing!! 🙂
