NaNoWriMo Update: The Home Stretch

I did it! Hooray!

Word count: 44,253  Goal: 50,000

One more day to reach 50k! Although NaNoWriMo has definitely been harder than I thought, I think I’ll finish on time. Writing the content is the easy part, it’s finding the time to write that is the issue. After all the personal challenges I’ve faced lately I am proud that I’ve gotten this far, and created something very special.

I’m just pissed though, because I only discovered the NaNoWriMo website the other day. I could have been tracking my progress, connected with like-minded WriMos, participated in local write-ins and more. Oh well – now I’m registered and I can be more proactive next year.

So now that NaNoWriMo is over, I can concentrate on bigger things – like my new website! Be on the lookout for, where you’ll find a more personalized version of this blog, along with some more professional information and links to other sources. Yay!

    I found the official NaNo site late too so missed out on a lot of the networking opportunities that community provided. But, yes, we should both be all set for next year. If you want to look me up, I’m djmatticus there as well. Congrats on your accomplishment this November!
