The final countdown has begun and I’m happy to announce that I met the goal of 50,000 words for the month. It’s been a great experience for me and I’ve got so much of the novel rewritten. The story is half way through the middle and I already have the end set up so, it shouldn’t take too long to finish now.
I’m planning on finding a few beta readers for this story to catch any typos and to let me know what works and doesn’t in the story. Most of the original content was kept but was repurposed so, a few things might not work well anymore. Overall, having a few extra pair of eyes will help me out.
Moving forward, I’m going to work extra to to go back to the schedule I had set up before where I’d post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Recently, everything has been jumbled up but that is the goal.
In the midst of all that, as I mentioned, I’ll also be studying for the Texes content exam that’s coming up in a few weeks so that might mess with the schedule a bit. It should not be too much of an issue. I have practice studying for exams so, I’m not too worried. With some time management and to-do lists, I think I got everything handled.
For everyone who reached their NaNoWriMo goal: Congratulations!
For those who are still writing: Keep up the great work! You got this!
