Wow, it looks November is almost finished. Just one more day, and it will officially be the beginning of the end. One more month, and the year of 2011 will be at a close...
Time is rushing by too fast! Ah, but I'm getting ahead of myself.
NaNoWriMo is almost over now. I unfortunately didn't get to finish the novel I'd set myself. In fact, there have been days at a time when I didn't work on it at all. I've stopped bothering to update my word count on the official NaNo website. But I dont mind. I've actually been keeping a running total of not just words that I've written towards my novel, but EVERYTHING I've written this month. Anything I've typed out or hand-written on paper, I've kept a tally on. That includes journal entries, lists, blog posts, emails, chat conversations, yes, even my Facebook statuses and comments! I know it's not the normal way of doing things, but I really just wanted to see if, even if I didn't write a real novel, with a plot and characters and everything, whether I could write a "novel" with things I write every day.
I'll give the final "official" count tomorrow, because there are a few blog post besides this one that I want to fit in, but if my calculations are correct I have gone well past 45k words. It may not be 50k, but it sure is close to it! So I'm proud. And I'm also proud of the fact that I didn't publically give up this year. ^_^
Hmm... I'm thinking about whether I should mention something now or just wait to talk about it in better detail later... Ah, what the heck. I'll just say it now:
I'm going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter next week!!! :D
