I think maybe 62,000? I'll still have some loose ends to tie up, but that will make for a solid part one (or book one) and I can start editing. Thinking I may continue it after that, as well .

What about you? Still writing past the 50k mark?

Do you think you'll keep writing this winter even if you don't hit 50k? I think Nano is really just supposed to be a good personal motivator.

I dunno. The truth is I just don't make time for it. I used to write all the time when I was younger, but it just isn't the priority that it used to be.

Not this year. I'm combining two 20k projects, so I really could've knocked off at 50k this year and been okay. I ink last year I did about 60k.

I'm done at 55,480. So glad I can take a break before I start editing this and start outlining the fiction I have planned to work on for next month. And

Agreed.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

Yeah, I'm doing it, but I'm cheating by rewriting an old book of mine. It's over 10 years old, I think that's old enough to give it a full redo.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

I'm kind of cheating myself. I've had this idea rattling around in my head for the past 5 years, maybe, and it's gone through many different versions. But I just recently came up with an idea that I'm very satisfied with that is going to require most of it to be rewritten.

I'm desperate to get this novel done. I have other story ideas that I would love to get to, but this one has been standing in the way. I can't seem to just let it go. It NEEDS to be finished.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

Maybe I should start a new "support" thread for those of us doing this?

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

Yeah, I have problems. I can never just lock into an idea. Every time I think of something to add or change, it's back to the beginning to start all over again. I've got notes for this thing dating back to 2007-2008.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

Is anyone still sticking with this? I'm almost to 22,000 words, so I'm a bit ahead.
