I managed to fly through NaNoWriMo with plenty of words to spare, ending with a grand total of 51453 Words! My story isn’t finished yet, which was my goal, but it is close… I have roughly eight scenes left and I will continue working on it until I am finished!
With NaNo finished I have taken up a new project. I found my original poetry and the first story I ever wrote. With them in hand I am hoping to create an ebook with some of my poetry to sell! It is the start to becoming a published author! We shall see what I have…
Also, it seems that Christmas is fast approaching, not sure why it seems there is less time this year, but it just feels that way. As I am planning to make all my Christmas presents this year I really have to get a move on!!! At least I have most of that figured out. That just means I have to figure out how to juggle my time a little better so I can fit my blogging back in!
Stay tuned as I am sure I will hit the ground running once more!
What about everyone else? Did you reach your NaNo goals? How are your current WIP coming along? Do you have special plans for Christmas? Please share, as always I love to hear from you all!!!

Congratulations on completing NaNo!
thanks much!!! Towards the end I was starting to burn out… knew I could do it, buut finding that motivation sometimes is tough!
Huzzah. Awesome that you finished. I liken NaNoWriMo to running a marathon, the first 26 miles are easy, it’s the last .2 that tests your resolve. The first 45,000 words are the easy part, the last 5,000 becomes the real test as a writer.
Yeah I really agree with you there!!! Part of the beauty of it all is the challenge, that keeps you going, but once you are close enough to know it is easy to make it, it becomes challenging, *grins*
Congrats on your NaNo victory! I only reached about 17k, but I am still plodding away with the story every evening before bed, so although I didn’t technically *win*, NaNo did reignite the writing fever inside me. Yay!
While you may not have managed to “win” the certificate, you are still a winner!!! Every word you have managed is one more word than you had! That is the true spirit of NaNo!!! Congratulations on your 17k!!
Mine isn’t finished just yet either, close, but not finished, I am still hard at work myself, although, I have not had much time to write getting ready for the holidays!
Congrats on winning NaNo! I’m still working on my NaNo novel, too. I’d like to complete it this month, but I’m not sure that’s feasible with the holidays.
yeah, the holidays have a way of sneaking in and stopping everything in its tracks!!! lol, at least that is what they have done to me this year! I am still trying to get all my gifts finished up, and ready to go!!!
