I did it!

Yep. This is my third successful attempt at NaNoWriMo. Yay!

Technically, I reached the 50k mark on Monday night. Then yesterday, I got the first draft finished. Today, I sat down with lappy and re-read the last two chapters I wrote. Before going to bed last night, I remembered two things that I forgot to tie up. It happens sometimes. I get so caught up on getting the story out that I leave things out. Lol.

Not a prob. I've added everything now. So, the word count went up a little again. The first draft weighed in at 56,194 words. That will probably go up when I do the second and third drafts, but for now the story is told. And I'm very happy with how it's turned out.

Some new things happened along the way, and they all help set up the third/final novel in this trilogy. Funny thing is that the names I've been toying with no longer seem to apply. So it looks like I need to come up with a new trilogy name, as well as the three titles. :/ Why is it so hard to nail the perfect title sometimes?

I've started to read THE HOST by Stephenie Meyer. Anyone read it? I've only just started but the premise sounds interesting. It's a long book, so I'm going to take my time with it. Of course, as the story moves along, if I get hooked on it I won't want to put it down. Lol.

Well, I'm gonna get going now. Gotta listen to Mr. Brightside another one hundred times before my daughter gets home. Lol.
