NaNoWriMo: Finished!

Yay! I'm finished with NaNo this year! So happy! But actually, the story isn't complete, not by any means. It's really going well, though. I'm taking a day or so to rest and then getting right back into it. I have some Christmas gifts to make, so I might concentrate on those quite a bit for the next week or so, but I won't lose the momentum of the writing. I'm still going to try to write every day... just not quite so much every day!

One thing I've decided to do in 2008 is to determine a comfortable daily pace. I wrote much more this year than I ever have, but I want to really find out what my pace is and what it should be to challenge myself just a little. I want to finish this first Draha book and have it ready to send out before next year's NaNo.

On another note, I've been a little lax on my 101 in 1001 list. I'm going to take a look at it tonight and decide what I can start working on from it. Some of the items (such as the overseas travel) may have to go to the next list because of finances and time, but I want to do as many items on the list as possible before the deadline. It's such a great way to experience new things!

    Carolyn See wrote a wonderful book called MAKING A LITERARY LIFE, where she suggest writing 1000 words a day for the rest of your life. That's only four pages, and takes about 30 minutes.

    My personal rate of comfort is 1500 words.

    The Nano rate is a bit too high for me, but if I have to, I can do it for a concentrated period of time.

    Congrats on finishing!

  2. Congrats on reaching 50k!

  3. Spectacular! I did so want to do the NaNoWriMo but circumstances were against me this year. Maybe I'll do a MyDecWriMo, lol! The relief must be sooo good!
