Nanowrimo2016 – Winner

November can be a strange month if you’re signed up to NaNoWriMo. A month filled withelvislive words (of course) but also numbers… that constant word count check, am I up to the target? My usual plan is always to try and write as much as possible on a Sunday and (hopefully) that way manage to get a few days ahead to allow for those days when you just can’t write – like if you have plans to go and see an Elvis concert for example (and that was AMAZING by the way!!)

And then you get to a day like today when I started the day with just under 3,000 words left to hit that magical 50,000 target… with each check the number got closer and closer and then, almost without warning, you do the validation check to see where your word count is up to and BOOM!!!!!

nanowrimo_2016_webbadge_winnerYes the 50,000 target has been hit – granted at this point I am only 56 words over the target but even one word over would count 🙂 The Imagined is in no way a complete book yet – there is still more of the story to go and I hope to keep on writing it for at least the rest of the month. And then we shall see 🙂

So, fellow NaNo-ers I hope the target is in sight for all of you and if not, well there are still a couple of days left to get those fingers tapping on those keys 🙂

Happy writing!!

  1. Congratulations, Dawn! I also hit my Nanowrimo target today. I had about 3,400 words to go. I went over the 50K with a total count of 53,153, writing over 6,000 words today. This was after taking 4 days away from writing. I wrote on two books as the first one was already started with about 16K words alread. I didn’t quite finish the second book’s draft. I have about one more chapter to go and it will be done. Of course I’m sure I will need to add a lot of words to both during the first edit as I tend to skip over lots of description.
