NaNoWriMo: Day 27

You guys will not believe what happened. I hit 40,000 words! This is pretty much the best thing ever. Even better, I wrote over 8750 words today so I could hit this goal. It was pretty ridiculous to sit here all freaking day, but I am so glad I did it.

I started thinking about possible endings today, and there are three or four I am tossing around in my mind. Most of them are pretty sad, but when I talked about this on Twitter, people said to choose the happy choice, but I seriously don't know. I feel like there are no YA books with depressing endings, and maybe I could spice it up by doing one.

So it looks like there are only three days left of NaNoWriMo. I'm excited for all this stress to be over, but I am also kind of dreading it. After NaNo last year, I sort of stopped writing until this December. I'm gonna need a little motivation to keep writing this year, but I will, will do it.

Words written today: 8752
Total word count: 40003
Recommended word count: 45000


  1. Yay!!! Good job! I knew you could do it!

  2. I'm just beyond proud right now. I can't believe you belted out 8,752 words today. You, Alex. YOU. The guy who was about to give up on NaNo altogether... the guy who wasn't sure of himself only a few days before.

    But look at yourself now. You're a freaking rockstar, you know that?! I'm just SO proud of you, you don't even know. The guy who was close to 20K behind is now only 10K away from winning NaNo! And after a feat like today, that doesn't feel so impossible, does it? After today, you've really got to ask yourself what *can't* you do?

    Action. I'm totally impressed by how well you took care of business today. In the end, we are only a reflection of the choices we made, and the actions we took to get us from point A to point B. You chose well today. You did well today, Alex! I'm so, SO proud of you! Only 3,333 words a day until the end. Don't. Give. Up.

    Or else.

    Just kidding, Love,


Thank you for helping me reach my dreams!
