NaNoWriMo: Week Three

Well, here I am again. How are you?

This week's NaNoWriMo post is a bit earlier because I reached The End yesterday. 

That's right. The first draft of STUCK is now DONE. Yay! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‰ This makes me really happy. Not just because it's another NaNo to add to my list, but also because it feels great to complete a new novel after working hard on multiple revisions this year and not much else.

Anyway, here's how the word count went: 

Monday: 57,668 (added 5631w)
Tuesday: 61,162 (added 3494w)
Wednesday: 63,580 (added 2418w)

I  kinda/sorta wrote my way to the end of the story on Tuesday, but during my afternoon walk decided there were several things I needed to fix/rewrite. The imagery was so vivid, I had a blast changing things up for the better. I even added a short Prologue and two Epilogues. I'll only keep one, but had to write both because the scenes demanded to be written. Phew.

I also grabbed my Winner Certificate and badges from the NaNoWriMo website:

And these are the stats:

Plus the daily word counts:

BTW, this is the 15th time I've won NaNoWriMo! Cool.

Writing this story turned out to be quite a dark experience. There were a lot of weird things going on and these characters really surprised me with their complications and problems. There was enough drama and creepy stuff to fill the pages with horror, dread and ghostly situations.

I call this haunted house ghost story a mix between America Horror Story: Murder House and The Haunting of Hill House. And I enjoyed writing every wicked moment. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Well, I suppose that's it for now. 

I'm looking forward to taking a few weeks off because my brain feels like mush. And I miss reading. I've been SO caught up in this story that I couldn't fit any others in. ๐Ÿ˜– It happens every time, which is a good thing. LOL.

Hope you're all having an awesome week. See ya!
