NaNoWriMo 2010 is almost at an end.
I have about 1800 words to go to reach 50,000.
I have written at a steady pace throughout the month, while others have written at a varied pace. For example, Jo Hart (whose short story Waiting on the Docks can be found on The Australian Literature Review) recently posted on her blog that she got off to a rocky start in the early weeks before starting another story, doing some 5000 and 7000 word days and getting back on track to 50,000 words with the new story.
Over the course of my story, the main character has learned a lot about how he wants to approach life. He started out as an adolescent who is emotionally inexperienced with no long-term goals or direction he felt strongly about. By the end, he has experienced frustration, shame, fear, sorrow, compassion, friendship, courage, and more. His life will never be the same and he is much better equipped for living the rest of his life.
For all you writers who are still going with your 50,000 words, good work making it this far and I hope you make it to 50,000 words. Anyone who has been blogging about your NaNoWriMo story this month, feel free to share a link to your NaNoWriMo blog posts in the comments section below.
