Half Way Through…

November 18, 2010

November 15th marks the half way point for NaNoWriMo and some of us have managed twenty five thousand words and some haven’t – but it doesn’t matter – as we have time to catch up, to revise, to add and to panic. It is a personal challenge and no-one is going to beat you up about it (unless you do that to yourself).


I have managed to go over the twenty five thousand and feel pretty confident (famous last words – pun intended!) that I will complete the task. My story has changed quite significantly in its format and I have been inspired to add several new chapters that my characters have driven me to write.

This is the fun of NaNo, not really knowing how the story will unfold and letting your imagination have free reign.

Happy writing dear friends – we can make the finish line together.
