NaNoWriMo: 40 days later

It's been 40 days since NaNoWriMo and I thought it was a good time to update you all on my progress or lack their of.

Sadly, I did not reach my goal of 50,000 words in the month of December. I did flesh out about 25,000 words and since then have added a measly 5,000.

Let's face it...I write much better under deadline.

After having a few new people read my Nano Novel from last year, I have had new life breathed into me and I can no longer drowned out the voices of my new novel. They are nagging me to get their story down and I have fallen deeply in love with my protagonist.

She is such a beautiful young adult...faced with a tough life and a lot of teen drama, she shines.

My goal is to have a rough draft complete by February 15th.

I guess I need to set my own deadlines.

One day I'm going to be relaxing and reading one of your books! I haven't written for sooooo long, I hate to even think how long it's been. Just hang in there and keep on writing. I so enjoy your blog that I'm sure I would enjoy your novel!

That was a tough goal to meet for the month of December. Are you crazy girl? February seems more manageable! Hope you make it!
