When I finished NaNoWriMo at the end of November with 50k words, I estimated another 20k – 30k before I finished the story.
It’s now the end of December, I’m sitting at 75k words and I estimate I have another 20k – 25k left to write before the story comes to a satisfying conclusion.
What happened? I have no idea.
Sometimes characters do unexpected things and lead me down unexpected paths. Which is great because I have all of these new ideas that I can’t wait to work into the second draft.
It is interesting to see how much NaNoWriMo motivated me.
November = 50k words. December = 25k words
If only every month was national novel writing month.
