NaNo–Day 26

On November 25, I made it to 74,063 words and on November 26, I made it to 78,934 words. After five days of not knowing how the novel ends, I had a breakthrough. So now the goal is to either make it to 100,000 words or to reach the end of the story. Advertisements

NaNo–Day 24

71,099 words. This is the first NaNo that I have finished the 50,000 words so early (reached that milestone on the 21st). Now the goal is to reach the novel’s conclusion. In order to reach the 70,000 mark, I bought three drinks from Biggby (I had a coupon, okay?) as motivation. And it worked.
