NaNoWriMo Saturday Word Count Update

NaNoWriMoThis is the last Saturday update (late, but still here) to share my writing progress for NaNoWriMo.

Between November 24th and the 30th, I wrote 34,835 words. That brings my total world count for NaNoWriMo to 143,770 words. The most I’ve ever written in a month.

Beyond the Myst still needs about 45,000 words to complete it. I plan on writing those by December 31st. Revelation Stones was almost complete by November 30th, so I spent the first three days of December finishing up the final chapters, writing the major battle scene, the homecoming and the epilogue that carries readers into the next book. The first draft stands at 164,256 words. I hope to trim that to 150,000 words.

Later this week, I’ll share what I’ve learned about writing so much in one month and working on two novels at the same time. All I can say is I love writing more now than when the month started. I can’t think of anything else I’d rather do than this. I’m so psyched about the next book, Healing Stones, I’m already dreaming up the opening scene. I’m excited to see January 1st, although if I finish Beyond the Myst early, I cannot promise I won’t dive into Healing Stones to let the adventure continue.
