with a bang or a fizzle?

National Writing Month is OVER!


I feel successful, happy, tired, disappointed, confused, brain-dead, elated and relieved! Yes, all at once. Holy Canoli! Who knew one month of writing could turn me into psych patient of Dr. House. My brain needs serious R&R. Good thing there isn't much to do this next month . . . ur, or not. 

My goal was to completely finish my book. I didn't quite get there, but I did write 60,000K total this last month. I'd like to think that I'm going to take it easy next month, but really, who am I kidding? I'm as competitive as a Survivor Contestant in the final four. 

So . . .

HOW DID YOU DO?

60,000 words? Holy cow! That must've taken a ton of Coke Zeros.

I didn't participate this year, as I focused on getting out of revision hell and pitching to three publishers.

I figured that was enough for me!

That is too awesome. I'm blind now.

But seriously, that is great. It's a lot better than my 0. Looking forward to a productive (and sick-free) December. :)

I've got to ask... did you copy and paste the same word 60,000 times?
Well done. Make sure you let us know how you progress. :o)

Awesome Erin!

I met my goals, that's all that matters. And 60,000 words in a month is spectacular.

Jenny S. Morris said...

Congrats, that's awesome.

Peggy Eddleman said...

I'm so proud of you I could cry! No, really. I think it's freaking awesome! Really, REALLY awesome. And it makes me a little sad that I didn't hang out with you at the library a single time last month. Can we do a joint sneak&write a couple times this month?

60k? Erin, that's seriously impressive!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congratulations!
I cheered.
Did NaNo last year and won, so I was good.

Melissa Pearl said...

Congrats on 60,000! That's awesome!
I'm very impressed :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

YAY!! WOOT! *throws confetti* You are awesome!! :D
I say I'm going to take a break in December, but I'll go crazy I think. ;)

Jessie Humphries said...

SO SEND IT TO ME! LIKE NOW!!!

Ruth Josse said...

Wowzers! I don't think I'll ever be able to write a book in a month. I can't even do it in a year. :) Congrats on 60,000 hard-earned words!

Melissa Sarno said...

60,000 words? Wow! Very impressive. I didn't NaNo this year but I've been doing quite a bit of editing :)

Leigh Covington said...

WOW! Kudos for you! Even if you didn't completely finish it, that is a huge accomplishment! You go girl! I didn't do NaNo, but I did survive this semester of school and I'm glad it's almost over!

Sarah Pearson said...

Congratulations, that must have taken a lot of coke zeros :-)

Banned complain !! Complaining only causes life and mind become more severe. Enjoy the rhythm of the problems faced. No matter ga life, not a problem not learn, so enjoy it :)
