Synopsis Sunday

Week three ended early for me. I hit 50,000 words and decided to stop. I have completed NaNoWriMo but I didn't complete a novel. But that's really okay with me. I just wasn't feeling anything towards my novel. Last year, it was almost romantic how much I loved my novel. This one was like a boring boyfriend. It had no passion, was always grumpy, and the relationship wasn't going anywhere fast. So I dumped it. But not before I used it mercilessly to get across the NaNo finish line. No regrets.

Hopefully next year's relationship will work out. Besides, I think I'm still missing last year's. I guess I never got closure. I need to find a publisher. Maybe that will do it.

My FINAL Word Count:

You could always self-publish! Even if you aren't happy with it, 50,000 words certainly isn't anything to sneeze at!

Congrats on hitting the 50K mark early! This is my first Nano and I am having a love affair with my book.. I am only just over 30,000 but I know i will get it finished; that's what the weekends are for.. I hope you do find a publisher, it would be awesome to see you get published!

Wow, I could never get that much written in under one month! Especially with school going on at the same time. I may challenge myself over winter break (or next summer)....

I'm trying to get the novel finished. I hit 50k. I wanted 150. But real life just keeps getting in the way.

I know how you feel. I struggled to get to fifty K and then I just quit.
