November NaNoWriMo 2016 update

 

I finished. This was my second year using Scrivener and I was able to compile my daily tracking sheet (thank you Nano template) and hit just over 50,000 words (50,376 officially, but who is counting?). This software program has been amazing and totally part of my success. It makes me accountable and has the closest word count to actual count ratio I’ve seen in a while.

I wrote a book about young girls, and their future counterparts, who share a common bond of loving STEM-related fields and they grow up, out of favor with one another and are drawn back in when one dies mysteriously. Let’s just say that this needs a HEAVY amount of editing and most likely a complete rewrite before it ever sees the light of day. It was THAT bad.

I’ve completed 10 novels, since starting this craziness in 2003 (I actually think I started in 2002, but I’m missing a novel). I’ve missed 4 novels, that means I’m just around 70%. This is not counting Script Frenzy. But hey, oh well.

I like doing this, but miss my writing friends–the internet is no substitute for an honest to goodness word war and I missed the write in at the Aquarium 🙁

Next year, I hope to have another one done.

Do you do nano?
