2562 words, for a validated total of 50,001. That is a novel.

It's a crappy one. Characters vanished into nowhere as they were no longer important. Strange powers appeared and disappeared as I forgot about them, then reappeared when I remembered them. Dialogue was sometimes forced to play out a plot point instead of letting a character speak. The story itself was simplistic and meandering. Items of background were introduced without concern for their impact on the setting, then discarded when they were no longer important to the plot. Every once in a while, I forgot which setting I was placing the story, and it changed to a different one, then back.

But it is done. I wrote a 50,000 word novel in 27 days.

4600 words today. That's a hair over half that. And almost puts me back on par. I think I will get there. :D

Congrats! I find most people who do NanoWriMo, even if they make the word count, don't manage a complete narrative arc, so that is something.

I am most pleased that I actually came to an ending that made sense given the things that came before it, and that seems reasonably satisfying. So, that worked out, at least.

Well done!!! Can't beleive you've already finished! My story is so far from ending I don't think I've even really started the main plot but that's ok I plan on keeping going! Thanks for being my writing buddy!

Thank you, as well! You kept me going, faster than I might have otherwise.

it amazing how motivating it is to have writing buddies and be able to watch their word counts.
