Today I crossed the NaNoWriMo 2015 ‘finish line’ with a total word count of 50,694 🙂
The first draft is not complete, but the goal of 50k in 30 days is done.
My next goal is to finish the first draft by December 31, 2015 so that I can have the first 10 pages polished and ready to submit in January 2016.
But right now, it’s time to catch up on the November 30-Day Sketch-A-Day Challenge!
Yesterday, I reported that I had caught up. But I had miscalculated by about 1k words. Today I am happy to report that I am really, really all caught up!
Today I added 3,688 words; Daily goal surpassed 🙂
Total words: 47,082 (par is 46,666)
2 days to go
Only need 2,918 to finish 50K by 30 Nov 2015.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving and you have come out of your turkey coma.

It’s been a few days since I’ve updated my word count because I have not done any NaNo writing–zip, zero, nada. I’ve been blocked, baffled, bewildered, and befuddled. But that all ended today! I’m back in the saddle. I’ve haven’t caught up to the other NaNoWriMo riders yet, but I can see their dust trails ahead of me. It won’t be long now.

Argh! Life is getting in the way. I didn’t get home from the day job until almost 8 p.m. It’s now 9:30 and I still haven’t had dinner. Less than 2k words tonight. On the bright side, I’m still a little ahead overall 🙂

Not as many words as I had hoped, but I am still on target. I am further ahead than I have ever been in the six years I’ve been participating in this crazy challenge.
I did post four days worth of the November 30-Day Sketch-a-Day Challenge to my project page. I only have today’s to do and I’m caught up on that. Yeah 🙂
And I finally cleaned out the printer innards from the toner catastrophe from a couple of days ago; and installed 4 brand new brand-name cartridges. No more knock-offs for this girl. I learnt my lesson.
