I did it! I am a NANOWRIMO WINNER!!
As you can see, I finished the National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO) Challenge for 2013. It was a great feeling. I worked hard every day, thinking about my story and putting it on paper. I worked steadily putting word after word as I brought my heroine’s story to life. I made the required word count of 50,000 on Nov. 28. I finished today with 56,607 words. I’m proud of myself having achieved my goal.
I planned to take a break in December and then embark on editing the book comes January. The easy part is over. Now the hard part is the next stage. I’m sure I need more details so the book will be longer than it is now as my first draft.
So stay tuned. If all goes well, I hope to publish in 2014.
