50,891!

Hoorah! I am happy to report that I crossed the 50k line in National Novel Writing Month. It’s definitely a rough draft, but the month yielded so much in terms of new insights into what might happen in this novel, and I successfully added flesh and structure to what used to be mostly notes and fragments. So that’s pretty cool.

This November felt different because I have a nonfiction deadline that I’ve been working towards, so I could not fully immerse in the novel. I am pleased that I made good progress on both, but I hope to arrange things differently next November.

I have been pondering next steps but will talk about those in another blog post. For now, I just want to celebrate crossing the finish line! Best wishes to all the other Wrimos out there, and thank you to all of you who cheered me along this month.
