NaNo Day 29: Hello, 50K, It’s Me

I WON NANOWRIMO 2015.

Also just almost had an asthma attack for the first time since middle school, thanks to accidentally going off my allergy meds for the first time since June. (PSA: Do not accidentally go off your allergy meds.)

This NaNoWriMo has been a roller coaster way more than any other year. I think I spent more time this month behind on my word goals than actually keeping up with them.

However, I’m also doing more this year than I have other years. (Way more.) And I somehow managed to get through this month without neglecting sleep or personal hygiene too much. So I’m proud of myself.

And, despite spending most of the month behind, I somehow finished on time today. So, like, yay?

I am now going to go finish the homework I have due tomorrow and go to bed early, because almost-semi-heading-in-the-direction-of-near-death experiences and hitting 50,000 words on NaNoWriMo for the eighth year in a row deserve a reward like sleep.

(Also, possibly, a slice of pie.)

Goal for Today: 3,000
Overall Goal: 50,000
Current Word Count: 50,278

NaNo Day 28: We Are the Champions

After a hard day, yesterday, of procrastinating via means of pumpkin pie, Catching Fire in IMAX, and planning vacation trips, GUESS WHO HIT FIFTY THOUSAND WORDS IN NANOWRIMO, RIGHT ON SCHEDULE.

THAT’S RIGHT.

THIS GIRL.

YOU MAY ALL NOW REVEL IN MY GLORY. (Just kidding. I’m just glad to be done.)

Fifty Thousand Words Baby

I hit 50k at around 12:05 AM. SO CLOSE to officially finishing on the 27th. I’m counting it.

I wrote just under 5k yesterday. I still need to complete the scene I’m in the middle of before I’m officially done-done for the month, because I’m banning myself from writing any more until after finals (and taking a week and a half off looks pretty much identical to me completely forgetting what I was doing)–but then I’m dooone! Despite all the struggle this year has been, I actually did it. That makes six years in a row of competing in NaNoWriMo, complete.

How’s your NaNo going? Do you think you’ll hit your word count goal by the end of the month? (If yes, GOOD FOR YOU. KICK IT INTO HIGH GEAR. YOU CAN DO IT. WHOOHOOOOO!) (If not, five points to you just for trying, because honestly, that’s half the struggle.)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!

day 28
