I did it! Whew! Not only did I surpass the 50k mark but I also completed a first draft of my manuscript. I spent all weekend trying to figure out a good ending and it finally came to me in the middle of the night.
Now for the fun stuff. I have to go back and add some details and descriptions in a few areas still lacking. That will boost my word count a little more, I hope to have it completed somewhere between 90k and 100k. If it doesn’t get that high I can live with that too.
Thank you Darksculptures, Kathan, Nancy Drew Too and Shaddy aka Paper Cut Screams for all your support and encouragement. I’m thrilled to see that we are all winners this month but not surprised. I knew we could do it, and what fun it was. I can’t wait to read more of what you’ve written.
I must mention that when I submitted my novel for the final word count the count drop over 450 words. I was surprised to see the difference in the Microsoft word counter and the NaNo word counter.
