I managed to write over 50,000 words in a month! And maybe you did too!

Even if you didn’t reach 50,000 you still did it! If you wrote anything during november then you did NaNo

For the last post on my NaNoWriMo series I decided to share a bit about my own project and its progress

First of all a bit about my project: Just Write

It wasn’t a novel (I know, I cheated) The idea was to write a chort story each day until I reached the goal, the stories were mostly fanfiction or unrelated parts of novels I’m planning on writing eventually.

A little bit of everything, going with what I felt like writing ech day.

This sort of project, turns out, gives you some weird looking stats. These were my word-count charts for the monthsgerghrst

Consistency? I don’t know her

My wordcount was whatever but I always tried to stay above the light-blue line so that I’d have breathing space for those days where writing just wasn’t happening.

I made a lot of new writer friends along the way, too! They are all from my same city and we created a Discord chat to keep in touch. It’s the first time I went to a write-in and I can’t recommend the experience enough.

Sometimes just chatting with like-minded people can help you a lot towards not loosing steam. We cheer each other on and help when someone had issues with their projects.

And we all had such different porjects too. There were two that were doing a screenplay, another who was writing dystopia, another who went full out and made a world populated by lizards. It’s really fun.

The key (for me) to keep going even when I don’t feel like it, is to have a community backing you up, helping you through it. Because if it’s just you then you’ll always be in the same space, unmoving.

What now?

This is a good question. On the NaNo site the What Now months are usually for formating and editing and all that stuff. Since I didn’t write a novel I’m not participating in that. What I’m doing, however, is keep up my writing habit.

I proved to myself that I’m capable of getting a lot of writing done if only I sit down and do it. So I hope to go on writing and maybe next year I’ll be writing a full blown novel.
