I Reached 50,000 Words!

by evilnymphstuff

This is a special post to announce that I’ve got past the 50k words mark in my novel-in-progress, a novel I’ve been writing since the beginning of the year – yeah if it was NaNoWriMo I would already be past 50k well before – as those who have been following my posts this year know.

And I didn’t realise that my previous post was actually my 400th! A neat number :) This is the 401st one.

Back to the novel I’m writing, it’s actually a project I’ve challenged myself to complete before going to university in July, and being on the 50k words line, I’m halfway through! Wasn’t sure if I should write ‘only’ or ‘already’ ;) I just feel that the story will evolve till past 100k words!

It’s urban fantasy, an idea, complex and continuously expanding, which was planted into my brain since I was 13 but which only became a story in 2012 for Camp NaNoWriMo in August and which I’ve been writing and re-writing since, never coming up with a completed story. Until now. Now I feel ready to finish that 3rd attempted first draft of this novel! I’m determined :)

If any of you want to know what this obsessive novel-in-progress of mine is basically all about, you can check out this short story I made based on it, for the Create A World Writing Contest by The Dark Globe which I actually won: CLICK HERE!

Anyway, thinking of novels… I made a book haul recently on my YouTube channel! Here it is:

Enjoy!

Tell me anything in the comments! About writing, reading… whatever! Let’s chat :)

My Novel Is Complete But I Have Not Yet Reached 50,000 Words?

by evilnymphstuff

So yesterday as I reached around 46,000+ words, I surprisingly typed:

THE END

And I still had at least 4000 words to write so as to reach the final 50,000 word goal for NaNoWriMo.

For those who have already reached 50,000 words…

Congrats!!!! :D

congratulations

I’ve reached 50k words too yesterday night ^^ (did you see my winning badge on the right??) but hell, my novel is nowhere near ready! I feel like I’m still halfway in the writing. I reviewed it briefly yesterday and realised that I have much much to edit and all that. But really, I thank NaNo because thanks to this challenge I am now determined to finish the story and maybe next year or when I’ll be ready for it: I’ll go and publish. My dad told me he’d help me if I do. :)

I will be writing a Novel!

Mais quelle mouche m’a piquée??

This is a French expression…

Literally meaning: But what mosquito bit me??

Figuratively meaning: OMG what did I just do??

This is what I’m feeling right now – well part of. Because thanks to my dear friend Aurora, I’ve been tempted to participate in the NaNoWriMo 2011!!!
