I Did It!!

30 11 2011

Image Whew! I made my goal of 50,000 words. The word count in Word showed exactly 50,000 words, but when I put it in the validator, it showed less than that, so I had to type in another paragraph. It should feel terrific to reach this goal, but secretly I’d been hoping to complete an 80,000-word novel, so I ended up feeling disappointed. I do wonder if setting such high standards is good or if it only makes it tough on yourself.

I think we need to spend more time on congratulating ourselves for what we’ve accomplished–and that goes for all you NaNo participants who didn’t reach your goals. Think of how much more you have written than you would have without the NaNo push and rejoice. You deserve to pat yourself on the back too!! Congratulations to all.
