I won Nanowrimo! I hit 50,000 words last night!
I realize I just posted my Blogmas schedule yesterday, and that today was supposed to be ‘Update 3’, next week ‘Update 4’ and then December 1st the results, but I was also planning on like… not finishing until then. But I ended up finishing early, so today is results! The other two planned nano posts will be subbed to something else, I’ll figure it out.
But yeah, I won! And honestly, after fifty thousand words, I barely got through act 1. So my novel is not complete, I just beat Nano. I’m going to give myself some time off and come back to it, because man am I burnt out.
Here are some stats!
So as you can see, my daily word count was all over the place – I was never consistent, except in that I was over the goal word count every day, no matter how much or little I wrote.
When Nano first started, I took November 1-3 off from work so I could get a good boost. I knew that this month was gonna be busy so I wanted a cushion. Lucky me though (or unlucky?) my month cleared up shortly after that, and I was able to maintain a nice lead.
Honestly, I really owe it to my buddy, who did writing sprints with me almost every day. She’s doing Nano too and is gonna win any day now, I can feel it!
So that’s it! Nanowrimo 2020, at least for me, is over. I really like what I made, though it needs some serious revision. But I definitely think it’s got potential.
