It happened. I finished.
50,050 words written in 29 days. There is something tremendously fulfilling about completing this challenge. This is the 4th year I’ve won. I love it every time.
As usual, I built up a good buffer at the beginning of the month which I had to rely on later in the month when things got busy.
I wrote 6,500 words in the last two days. I technically had through tomorrow to finish, but I really wanted to wrap up today. So tonight ended with a 2460 word sprint.
I still have probably 30k words left to finish the story. It has turned out to be a LOT more fun that I thought it would. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
The plan is to hopefully get the first draft finished before the end of the year. Then, come January, I can start my first round of revisions. Not sure whether I’ll do this book or my fantasy that I finished previously. They both need done, though, so we’ll see.
I’ll write more when I have time. But I wanted to at least throw out a quick status update because I haven’t been on here in a while.
More updates to come soon.
