Writing Progress - 11.29.10 or I'm a WINNER!

This past week I made tons of progress. The most important thing would be that I FINISHED MY NANO PROJECT! *cue applause*
It topped out at just over 50,000 words, but I know that I need to go back and add details. I tend to forget to describe things like the setting when I'm drafting. I think it's because I already know what everything looks like in my head so I just skip over the description. This doesn't really help you if you're not in my head, though.

After I finished up my draft, I printed out the third version of last year's NaNo and started on (more) edits. I've gotten through 24 pages so far. Let's hope the momentum keeps up!

This week, I plan to:


  1. Congratulations!!! It sounds like you're being super-productive :) Good luck with edits and have an awesome time at the David Levithan/Rachel Cohn signing!

  2. Congrats on winning! I can't wait to read your thoughts on The Book Thief!

  3. Yay! That's awesome! Congrats - what "goodies" do you get?

  4. Way to go! That's awesome and very impressive!

  5. Congrats!

    Good luck with the revisions!
