Have been at 33.004 for a couple of days, and have decided to give up on trying to win this year. I might still continue writing the novel (or rather: rewrite it and this time do it properly), but I`m not going to try nanowrimo anymore. Just can`t make it with the limited time I have and the gazillion other things that also need doing.

Just past 48,000.

Bit of a struggle. I have the story but I'm just feeling so tired.

I validated a win on Wednesday the 27th, however the story is only about 65% done. Gotta keep on grinding it out, then comes the edit.

Tomorrow, put the whole thing away for a week or two then come back to it. Even though mine is passed 50K It is missing so much and will need a rewrite.

I'm hoping to finish with a word count of around 20,000 words, right now it's just over 16,000. I know that doesn't seem like a lot, but the very fact I have written anything this month is so much of an achievement that I can't bring myself to be disappointed. I've been writing about and just generally thinking about my research more this month than I have so such a long time. I've found myself getting excited about it again, something which seemed almost impossible under all the anxiety a few months ago =]
So it's a personal victory even if it's not a NaNoWriMo one!

Does anyone know if I can carry on adding daily word counts after the end of November? Would be nice to keep tracking my progress.

Nope. It freezes at the end of the month until next november.

There is still the July event you can work for.

Also there's progress going on attempts at getting an 'interactive fiction' month going by another group.

Ok, The Icon of Stasis (bad pun, I know...Wink Finally done at about 53,000 words or so. Punched it up some, and posted today.

The problem, originally was that I had 53k of words, but no plot, not much characterization, mainly a bunch of people having long conversations on boats...Wink It's slightly better, but Stephen King doesn't have to lose any sleep...Wink

btw...I can't seem to get to my last year's entry.

Look forward to seeing what y'all come up with. I can always use lessons..Wink

Come on guys, if you do your best, it matters not if you hit the 50K mark, it only matters that you have a manuscript!

So an awesome and wonderful thing happened to me.

Got nanomail from another user (who I still owe a review/look through to and this just steps that up on the priority list.)

Not only did they look through the in progress PDF and give a general summation of what they enjoyed but they also included a chapter by chapter breakdown of high points and things that they caught just at a glance.

And they even went so far as to include quoted text snippits so I could find the problem areas sooner.
