This morning I typed out my 50,000th word.
NaNoWriMo is officially won.
Those words do not give the excitement I feel bubbling up inside of me right now justice. I never once in my wildest dreams imagined that I could write 50,000 words in exactly twenty one days. Yes! That's right! I finished the challenge 9 days early!
Yeah, I know. I can't believe it either. Especially since I usually frantically type out my last few hundred words on the very last day of the month. I'm beyond ecstasy thinking of the new 50K words that are now a part of Children of a Legend.
I can't make this a long post due to the fact that my assistance is needed in the kitchen today (is anyone else astonished beyond reason that Thanksgiving is TOMORROW?!), but I just wanted to share the glorious news with you all. And some stats, of course. :)
My total written this month (so far): 50,000
My average per day: 2,380
Best writing day: November 20th with 5,465 words
Worst writing day: November 4th with 853 words
April NaNo: 50,036
June NaNo: 50,176
Words written July to October: 1,822
Final word count for CoaL: 152,034
And that's not the end, people. I've finally given in and decided that CoaL is a series, not just a single book. However, I'm about 3,000 words away from the end of this first book. And don't worry... I'll share snippets of what I wrote next week!
I wish all my friends in NaNo great success in writing. And Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family!
