December Insecure Writers Support Group, NaNoWriMo Results

IWSG November IWSG Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by and saying hello! This month’s Insecure Writers Support Group is brought to you by the our host Alex Cavanaugh and his incredible co-hosts Jennifer Hawes, Jen Chandler, Nick Wilford, Juneta Key, JH Moncrieff, Diane Burton and MJ Fifield. Be sure to stop by and give these awesome hard working bloggers some love. 

NaNoWriMo 15,392. Yep. That’s right. 15,392 one of my lowest word counts to date yet by far the most successful. How can that be? Well, I’m mighty glad you asked. The object of this annual event is to write as many words as you possibly can without regard to editing and formatting and researching and stuff. I started off this way and quickly found myself working on three different projects. Problem was, I needed to research a lot of stuff before freestyling it and just write for the sake of writing for volume. 

So I did a lot of research which was great because I framed three incredible works and all the research is complete. I can know write for volume and will easily finish one project before the holidays are over. Now 

If you reach that magical number of 50,000 then you get to post a really cool NaNoWriMo badge. It’s a major milestone and if you achieved 50,000 this year or any year then you should be proud. 

Too bad there isn’t a NaDecWriMo for December as I will hit the 50,000 word mark for sure.

In fact anyone and everyone should be proud of participating and whatever world count you achieved then hat’s off to you and go out and celebrate. Do something crazy. Just don’t get caught. 

Question Did you participate in NaNoWriMo this year? If so, how many words did you write. Have you ever hit the 50,000 word count?
