That’s how many words I have left to write before I reach the finish line for NaNoWriMo! Although my word count does not reflect it (I figure the next time I verify will be at the very, bitter end), I am at 45, 467 words as of 4:45 pm this afternoon. I started my Thanksgiving weekend sprint on Wednesday afternoon with 22,886 words. I think I’ve done pretty well in the mean time, considering a lot of the time between then and now was spent sleeping late (I’m on vacation, after all), cooking, eating, cleaning up, and driving back home from North Carolina.
I feel pretty good about finishing, but I’ve got to get back to it, so this is going to be short. None of my nine stories are going to be technically finished, they all ran away from me. I guess all nine of main characters felt like they should be the star of their own novels, and were not willing to share the spotlight. 🙂 I do admit that I’ve fallen in love with some of them, though, and I may continue to write their stories until they come to a natural end, and see what happens.
I do have lots of news to share with you all though, non-noveling news, that is. But, it’s going to have to wait! Back to work.
