NaNoWriMo: Week Three

The third week of NaNoWriMo is over.

Well, it's over for me because it's Friday in Oz and I spent the day adding new words to my WIP. 

This was a busy week because asides from adding a bunch of words, hubby and daughter were home for a few days (sick leave), we went to the DAB YA Blogger night on Wednesday (which was a LOT of fun!) and I even read an awesome book.

Yeah. Lots of stuff going on. No wonder I'm tired. LOL.

Anyway, here's this week's w/c: 
  • Monday: 36,329 (added 3285w)
  • Tuesday: 40,936 (added 4607w)
  • Wednesday: 43,554 (added 2608w)
  • Thursday: 46,575 (added 3031w)
  • Friday: 51,725 (added 5150w)

Why is the Friday word count amount in bold? Well, that would be because I reached the NaNoWriMo 50k goal AND also finished the first draft. Why is this a big deal? I finished NaNo and the story I was writing. Yay. That rarely happens. Actually, I can't remember the last time I did this because all my other drafts usually go way past 50,000 words.

I had a great time writing this story and enjoyed the hell out of seeing a simple idea--consisting of several inspirational pics--becoming a Sci-Fi adventure, then turning into a very emotional, tense and mysterious story.  There's still adventure. There's still strange hidden things. There's still a love story. Just not the one I expected. 💕

And that's a cool thing.

Although I reached The End of the story, as well as the challenge, I'm not calling this WIP (officially) finished until I take care of my page of notes. (Yes, there's always a page of scribbled notes.) That might include some additions, a bunch of notes to add to my Story Notebook, and possibly reading the last few chapters again.

That's for Monday, because I'm taking the weekend off. I need a breather, but man I LOVE this story. The characters, what happens to them and especially their love story.

Right now I'm very happy with how it turned out. That'll probably change during the revision process, but today I'm in love with this story. 😍

Have a good weekend
