No mo' NaNoWriMo

Put your pencils down, kids. National Novel Writing Month is over at midnight, your local time.

So. How did everybody do? The Comments are open for boasts and excuses, so let's hear 'em!

I made it to 50,029 -- on the 27th. Woo for me. The bad news? I don't like the story... well, actually, I don't like my heroine. Loved the hero, so I'm going to find him a new lady and try again.

Still, it's never a waste of time to write. I love doing NaNo, this is my second year doing it (and winning both times) and I'll do it again next year.

It's a blast!

I have completed my fourth NaNo with 69,837 words and just two chapters to go before I have a complete first draft. It was a great experience, slightly different kind of novel than what I usually write so I learned a lot from the process, and am looking forward to getting back to this one and editing it before pitching it somewhere.

Congrats to everyone who gave it a shot!

I didn't make the 50 000 word count, however I did manage to write the words "the end".

NaNo was a great experience, but the rush to complete did not allow the time I needed to fully develop my characters and their motivations.

After a short break, I'll definitely go back and rewrite it - giving it the justice it deserves.

I'm thinking novel writing is not for me. I lost steam, and had just a couple of people encouraging me, so nope. I failed, again. I hit the 15,000 mark last night, though.

My first try at NaNo for me with just under 7,000 words. It was exhilarating but more biographical than novel. I did enjoy the process. Discipline seems to be my problem, alas. I may have a book in me, but it may never get out.

I got involved in doing a MS rewrite with someone that helping me seek representation, so that work didn't count!

It was a journey, but one well written for me. Congratulations to everyone who participated.
