No that is not my weight that is my word count. Thank you NaNoWriMo for allowing me to show off a little. Now for the editing, chopping, cutting, pasting and regretting. I’m taking a bow.

  1. Congrats. Editing down has always been a reason for me to clean the catbox, or anything else…but the end is so much nearer, and that’s got to make you feeeeeel goooood.
    You’re from Washington, or a visit? I’m just beginning to lose the webs between my toes.
    Later…

    1. I have family there so we go up every couple of years. They live in Olympia/Seattle. I enjoy the visits and the rare good weather last time was nice:)

      1. Like Johnny Cash sang, “I’ve been everywhere…”, but few places as pleasant as western Washington in August and sometimes September. The Olympic Peninsula, behind the rain forest…closest thing to “home” to be had. Hope you’re getting into the whittling of words.

      1. I do laugh a lot when i edit, some of the mistakes I make are hilarious. I once said that my main character could have had any guy she wanted but so and so was the best “prick” thank heavens I found that one before I sent it off.

  3. Wahoo! Nice work… I was just saying on someone else’s blog this morning that I generally try to stay away from word count targets… but it’s hard! I just try to write every day and try to keep surprising and entertaining myself… I figure that if I can do that then I’m half way there.

    But over 50,000 words. That’s impressive.

    1. Thank you:) I usually avoid these things as well, but I needed a motivator and nothing works better than the threat of failure. I can readily admit though that at this moment this is the sloppiest piece I’ve ever written.

      1. Honestly I was a bit divided, uncertain whether pushing out a work this fast was a good idea or bad. I look at it and it doesn’t have the typical bare bones feel my writing tends to have—I like minimalism–how did I get so descriptive? Maybe just extra words to reach the goal?

      2. I genuinely don’t think it matters with a first draft as long as it helps you get through it. I know that I’ll be spending months on my second draft… there are at least two major sections that will need to be completely re-written on top of everything else I’ll need to do to it.
