NaNoWriMo 2017 Wrap-Up

How was your NaNoWriMo? As you can see from the sad word counter in the sidebar, mine crashed and burned fairly early in the month. I wrote 10,714 / 25,000 words.

My first week and a half went great. Then I had a week where words eluded me, then a week of Thanksgiving, then this week I’ve been doing a final first-round edit of Polaris Rising instead of writing new stuff.

Still, I’m glad I attempted it because I still ended up with 10k more words than when I started. And that’s not nothing. :)

If you didn’t make your goal, don’t beat yourself up. If you wrote any words this month, those are words you didn’t have before. Celebrate those new words!

And if you did make your goal, CONGRATULATIONS!! ??? I know how tough it is and how much dedication it takes, and I’m so proud of you. Raise a glass of your favorite tasty beverage and enjoy basking in the glow of accomplishment.

Let me know if you participated and how you did so I can celebrate with you!

  1. So when does it look like Polaris Rising will be published? And will it be in a paperback version as well? (Still like to hold a physical book in my hand! ☺ )

    1. Polaris Rising is due out in “early 2019” according to my publisher. I believe it will be in February 2019, but because it is so far out, the date is subject to change. And the current plan (once again, subject to change!) is for it to come out in trade paperback as well as ebook.

  2. I have read and thoroughly enjoyed your writing goals. I loved reading something new (i.e. a different plot line) even if its just a chapter or a part of a chapter. I was referred to your page through Ilona and Gordan Andrew’s blog post, which I love when they release semi- edited chapters and I hope you continue to post. It gives me something to look forward to each week.
