End of Nanowrimo!!!

Hi everybody,

Sorry for disappearing for so long. The internet at my home was cut off, so I had to go cold turkey. No twitter, or facebook, or youtube, or anything. But then I realized that this was a good thing. I could work on my novel during Nanowrimo without any distractions.

But now Nanowrimo is over.

I've managed to write over 56000 words at the end of Nanowrimo! Yay!

Although I've completed this challenge, my novel is not yet finished. I still have a couple of thousands of words to go. But still, I have written more in this one month than the previous six months I first attempted to write this novel. So I'm quite happy about that.

Right now, I'm going to take a break from writing for awhile and start reading some books for a week or two. I am currently reading Shakespeare Undead by Lori Handeland.

But I'll eventually continue to write my novel.

I believe that I will finish the rough draft before February.

Thank you everyone for supporting me,

John Smith

P.S. - I'm sorry, but my posts will be a little sporadic from now on. I will probably only be posting about once or twice a month.

Also, I am currently typing this blog post from a computer at my local library.


  1. Glad you came back from the writing dead. I understand, when I write, I tend to put everything else on the backburner. IE: if the phone rings, there is absolutely no answering it. Yep, you should take a break from you massive writing month. Good job for writing so much.

  2. Congratulations on finishing NaNo. I'm with you on the taking a break and reading and just doing what I want for the month of December. I need to recharge before I dive into revisions. Have a well-deserved wonderful break! :D

  3. Congratulations on racing past your target; good luck with the rest of your writing journey. :)

  4. Sweet! Congrats on reaching over 56K.

  5. Congrats, dude! I have great admiration for this year's winners. I gave you and some others a shout-out on The Magic Nutshell.

  6. Twice or thrice a month is more than enough for me, generally speaking. I've had my bouts of speed blogging, but that's in the past.
