Whoo-hoo. I broke through for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) at 50,080 words on November 30, 2020, and stopped at around 11:45pm on November 30, 2020, for an end point count of 51,114 words. It is a messy murder mystery with plot holes and dangling story lines, and I really don’t know what is this draft, but I made it to 50k words!
I am far from finished and the draft needs tons of work (like massive re-haul), but I have characters that I want to revisit? I don’t know. This was a weird November 2020.
Anyway, we did it again, and you know who you are, fellow Wrimos! Regardless if you have 500 or 50k words, a story was generated and a little art (such as it is) is good for something, especially since we did this during a year of pandemic and socio-political and economic upheaval.
Not sure what December project will be next, but let’s hope that the rest of 2020 will be better. — ssw15
