Nanowrimo 2012

Yeah!  I just validated my win on Nanowrimo.  54,000 words this month.

The only problem is that I didn't quite get to the end of the plot.  Okay, I didn't get nearly as close as I should have.

Nanowrimo 2009--Totally finished the plot
Nanowrimo 2010--Finished the plot, but with a few scenes left out toward the end
Nanowrimo 2011--Got the last scene in, but skipped quite a bit toward that end.
Nanowrimo 2012--Oops.  Still a lot of plot to go.  But I still got 54,000 words while working 40+ hours, doing the holidays, and mostly maintaining my exercise routine.

Hmm..  Is this a worrying trend?


  1. This is a most worrisome trend. You are in grave danger. If you don't mend your ways, you could end up writing books that are too thick. Books like those of J. K. Rowling, Stephanie Meyer, or Stephen King.

  2. Hmmm...I don't mind too much the dangers of being compared to J.K. Rowling or other superstars of authordom.
