WORD up!

I just won NaNoWriMo!!!!
My novel is, so far, 50,236 words, but there is still a bit to be written before the story is actually done.
I really enjoyed doing NaNoWriMo, and I wish I had started doing it a few years ago. It was good for me to get back in the habit of writing and forcing myself to push through even when there were times I didn't want to. I'm so proud of myself now and I think I'm going to go post it as my status on facebook!

In Harry Potter news, I have started the Fourth book, "The Goblet of Fire," and am enjoying it very much. I've read a few other books in between, but I can't remember what at the moment! (My brain is all jumbled with happiness from WINNING!)

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving yesterday and that you got to spend some time with your families and enjoy some great food! I know I did!

Eight Days In

Well, technically five days, since I started NaNoWriMo on the 3rd.
I am almost 14,500 words in, which is a pretty big accomplishment for me I think, considering I literally had no preparation and hadn't written anything "just because" since sometime in high school. "Part One" of my novel is done, and it will comprise of a total of three parts. Hopefully it works out, since I now have a bit of a rough outline for the rest of the story. Until now though, I was mostly just making it up as I went. Not the *best* strategy, but at least I'm doing it!
I am almost done with Harry Potter #2, it's been hard to read while I've been spending so much time writing. I'll definitely make a post when I finish!

I decided to participate after all.
My story doesn't have a title yet. But it's about love and loss and finding yourself by going through those things.
My word count is 975. Which is pretty good for an hour. And it's my first creative writing endeavor since I was ten. So I am proud of myself. I just have to keep it up!
