NaNoWriMo Update: I Did It!

Well, would you look at that! I actually managed to get to freaking 50,000 words!

A few days ago I decided to give up. I was close, but not close enough and figured with Thanksgiving and all the stuff I would be doing with family that I'd have no time to keep up with it. So I just decided, this is not happening.

But then, whenever I had a moment or two, and in the mornings before things got crazy, I wrote a few hundred words here and there. And wouldn't you know it, those few hundred added up to a thousand or so and that thousand or so added up. Which is to say that I managed to keep pretty much right on task until just now, a few minutes ago,when  I finally broke 50,000 and WON!

So, the story is not at all done yet, which is pretty normal for most people. 50,000 isn't long enough to be a complete novel usually. So I have more to write to finish it. And now I must decide, is this story worth finishing, because it's a pretty crap story. Fun, perhaps. Silly, for sure. Weird, definitely, but worth finishing? I don't know.

I'm going to give it a break because one thing I do know, I'm sick to death of it! And after a little break, we'll see if I'm dying to come back to it and see how it all ends.

Whew. I'll be happy to get back to reading and watching Netflix in my "spare" time. And work on last year's story, which I actually miss somehow!

And maybe I'll manage  to decorate a tree and buy some Christmas after all!

I can't even tell you how nice it is to see that number!!!
