My Word Count as of the End of the Writing Day, November 25: 48,434
Yes, I have less than a typical day’s worth of writing left toward the 50,000-word goal, and five days to complete it. At this point, I could write ‘The End’ 783 times and be done…not that that’s the plan, but I could. Actually, the plan is to finish the first draft, which I would guess will be around 55,000 words.
At this point, I can say this book has been fun to write. They all have been, in different ways. This one, in particular, was a chance to try my hand at a faster paced thriller, with a touch of humor and a bit of romance. But that’s one of the nice things about writing; a book in a new genre is just a story concept away.
What now, you may ask? Beta reads; reviewing, revising, and editing; and then to publishing. It will still be a few months before this book is out on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and elsewhere. But these much less interesting parts of the publishing process will get done.
I will have one more NaNoWriMo post, sometime after the end of the month, to give you the last word count and my final thoughts on the activity.
