Camp NaNoWriMo Day 30 : Success!

Winner 2015 - Web Banner

I didn’t think I would make it, but I completed both my word count and my story!

I’m very pleased.

I just wasn’t in much of a writing mood and when I though about the plot of my story, I didn’t think that it would really be possible to reach my 30,000 word count goal.

It was disappointing.

On Tuesday I had to study for my finals and I also told myself that I had to finish my NaNoWriMo story, as I knew that I would not want to be writing on Wednesday. I wrote about 9,000 words that day and finished the novella. Once I had finished with the story line, I still needed 3,000 words to make my goal.

I wrote about 1,800 words yesterday and the rest I wrote today. I added a good amount of description to reach my goal.

I underestimated how tedious it would be to add in description for 3,000 words. But I did it. And now I can say that, at 30,007 words, I have won my first ever NaNoWriMo. Of course, I’ll have to be able to write 50,000 words in November for the original WriMo.

I got very sick of writing around the point where I hit 28,000 words, but I pushed through and now I can feel accomplished with what is currently a Novella, and the first thing that I have written of that length.

My stories never tend to make such a high word count.

It was fun. I look forward to the next.

Now I can celebrate!
