I did it! I still really like my story, and I think with more work on the background and outlining, I’ll be able to finish it. The flow slowed a lot the last couple weeks, but with the pressure of the word count being over it was much easier to finish today. I knew I didn’t have a lot left and the words came more easily than they had all week. I might have gotten more words in, but there are errands to run and I have to be in bed earlier for work tomorrow, so I will be happy with this count as my final total this year.
Total for NaNoWriMo 2016:
I downloaded my certificate and tomorrow I will get my coupon code for Scrivener. I am really happy with all I did this month. It is probably the most satisfied I’ve been with a NaNo story in all the times I’ve participated or won.
Congratulations to everyone who participated, whether they reached word count or not. You rock!
