In Which I Repeat Myself and Give Encouragement

What is that? Oh yeah, it's called MUSIC TO MY EARS!

This excites me to no end, seriously. I am 2x ahead of schedule, and at this pace, I will finish my novel next week. I probably won't, though. But how cool would that be? Also, I feel like I wrote that yesterday. Oh well, I deserve to repeat myself.

So what should I do with all this spare time? Oh yes, keep writing at the same pace. Just because I can afford to take a break, doesn't mean I will. Most novels are not 50,000 words, and I doubt mine will be. So my goal is to finish the first draft in November, even if it exceeds 50,000 words. Because I want this book to be written. I love writing it, but I want to get this rough draft done so I can make it... less rough. Because it's not too fantastic the way it is.

I hope you guys are tackling NaNo with ease, and don't worry if you aren't. You have time!

See you tomorrow,


  1. You're doing awesome! I've got about 17,000 words so far, so I'm only a couple days ahead of schedule, but I'm doing what you are--I'm focusing on getting this rough draft written so I can re-work it when I'm done. I'm already looking forward to having it finished so I can work on my 2nd draft!

  2. Yay! I'm at 15K at the moment!


Thank you for helping me reach my dreams!
