NaNoWriMo update—finished!

I have just passed the 50,000 word mark  of words written since November 1st. Although I haven’t been a participant in NaNoWriMo, doing write-ins or chatting to ‘writing buddies’, even getting any writing buddies, it has provided the discipline I need to keep at it.

The daily word target has been 1666, which seemed daunting at first but I’ve been keeping to it, and overtaking it this last week. Since I started with 19,000 words already written, I now have almost 70,000 words towards my WIP which is a great start. I’ve no idea how far along the story is—the two main protagonists haven’t actually met yet. This could be a long one.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. Thank you! No, I finished the Selkie story and sent it off end of October and got straight into the new WIP., Twelfth Century Norman Invasions, not a Sellkie in sight 🙂 I have this fear of forgetting how the story goes if I don’t write it immediately.
