NaNoWriMo 2018 – Winning!

Well, shit, you guys, it finally happened. I've been a member of the NaNo website for almost a decade, I used the site to track for the past three years (though I competed more often than that), and finally, last night, I became a winner for the first time in the month of November. I… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – Winning!

A Tiny NaNo Update At 40k Words

This is the letter you get at 40,000 words. It's incredibly encouraging, for me at least.

I'm halfway there and though I'm a little bit behind my goal of hitting 50k by the 20th, I think I can still make it (especially if I keep on ignoring Vacancy). There have been a few weird days, but also… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – 25,000 Words (The Halfway Mark!)

Fucking whoa. So over the first five days of NaNo, I've averaged 2500 words per day (and I got Vacancy out on time, so what the fricking frick?) to get me to 12,554 words at the end of the day yesterday. Can yoU BELIEVE IT? Just a note: this story was one I came up… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018 – First 12,500 Words
