NaNoWriMo (End of Day 17)

Well, I've done it.  Averaging about 1149 words per hour over 17 days, I have completed my first ever NaNoWriMo.  I have, to say the least, surprised the hell out of myself.  I didn't think I was going to get 50,000 words on 30 days, never mind 17.

Over the last 17 days, my typing speed has increased a tad, with the sad side effect of my spelling becoming the worst I've ever seen.  It seems my fingers don't move fast enough for the words to come out right.  I think I can live with that.

Even though, officially, I have completed Nano, I've decided that I'm going to keep on going until the end of the month.  If I maintain this rate, I should have close to 90,000 words by then.  Pretty much a complete novel.  But, now that the pressure is off, I also plan on actually cleaning the house, cooking some real meals, and generally keeping things nicer for the family.  They have, for the most part, been very supportive.

All I can say is… WOW! 


  1. I can relax a bit now that I made it. Still hoping for just under 90,000 this month though.
