Well, it’s December 3 which means that NaNoWriMo is over. How did I do, you ask? Well, I am not an official “winner.” The adult goal for the month is 50,000 words, and I didn’t write that much. My word count for the month was:
<drum roll, please>
I’m actually very pleased with that number. My goal for the month wasn’t 50,000 words; my goal was to finish my story. Unfortunately, I didn’t do that either. I would say that I am about three-quarters through the first draft. It is a middle-grade story, which I’m calling Snow White and the Queen.
And though I didn’t make either goal, I’m still pretty happy about how much I wrote. And the story! It is coming together in a way that pleases me. Really, what more can I ask for?

Elizabeth, you did great! Twenty thousand words is an accomplishment but most of all, you’re happy with those words. That’s what counts. Congratulations!
Good for you!
