NaNoWriMo 2013: Finished 11/14/13


I have finished NaNoWriMo 2013, the date November 14th.  While I am extremely happy about this, two things need to be said. One is I wrote the words required to win but I am not claiming they are good words. Another thing is the book is not done. I need, in my mind, to add at least another 10-20k to make this book complete. So as the rest of the month winds down I will be adding but at a slower pace. I am proud of myself. When I started NaNo in 2011 for the first time I did not plan it. I decided two days before I was going to do it. That was a mistake due to my health. But it was a well earned win.

As I stand this is what I have:


2011:The book written was called “A Woman of Color” which is a true story of racism.

2012: The book written was called “Moe’s Cafe” which had it’s origin from a writing prompt. The genre is action, adventure and a hit of the mob.

2013:The book written was called “Lost Faith” which fit the genre of YA, religious and drama. It stems from an apocalyptic world where faith is no longer recognized.

I can honestly say all three works were a joy to write. I love them for their individuality. But where do I stand now? They are all in various stages of editing and revision. A chore I hate and dread with ever fiber of my being. But it is time I get it done so I can start submitting them.

So I shut the door to NaNoWriMo 2013. It has been fun but man am I glad it is over.

  1. I am so proud of you. I do not even know you, but I am giving you a virtual high five. Awesome (and by the way, I would LOVE to read that YA title of yours. It sounds great).

    My finish line is a few days away, but I hope to join you in the winner’s circle.

    1. Thank you so much Leanne. It does mean a lot you saying that. I know it needs another 10-20k words before I can consider it done or close to being done. Thank you I am very pleased with how it has turned out.

      Let me know when you are officially done so I can virtually high five you back. 🙂
