I have completed the thing! Current word count: 50,039. That was a whole bunch of words. I was behind up until yesterday. I never did manage to get ahead a day, but I finished, so I’ll take that.
I worked the fastest on my phone/bluetooth keyboard setup. It was functional enough for me to type but not functional enough that it was easy to switch over to something that distracted me. Whenever I tried to type on the laptop, I couldn’t seem to fight the urge to check on things, email and other projects, etc.
I entered my word count on the Nano website to make it all official-like. I had to paste the text of the book into a window, so that they could verify that I reached the word count. I don’t remember having to do that before. I thought it was interesting.
Once I did that, the nanowrimo site granted me this certificate graphic thing.
And there was this video, which may actually be the nerdiest thing I’ve ever seen in my whole life. I say that with love.
The book is not finished yet. I plan to work on it through the weekend and hopefully finish by Monday. I probably have another 5-10,000 words left in the story.
