I was a busy bee again in October, working hard to finish the first draft of the novel I wanted to take to a workshop I signed up for over the first November weekend. The workshop was about revisions, and I wanted to bring at least a full first draft to it. So I wrote and wrote and wrote, and it paid off - I got that first draft done a week before the workshop.
So last month I wrote exactly 45.800 words, all for that novel-in-progress.
Now it's November, that holy month for writers: National Novel Writing Month.
I'm not participating this year, because I'll be backpacking through Peru in the last half of the month, and fourteen days to write 50.000 words just isn't realistic. I've decided that October was my personal NaNoWriMo for 2013. Or May; I got close to the 50k mark then, too.
Good luck to all writers out there going for NaNo! You can do it!
