NaNoWriMo 2013 Summary

Hello everybody! I’ve not updated this blog in quite a long time!

In November I was busy with NaNoWriMo which I signed up to at the last minute. National Novel Writing Month is a challenge which takes place every November to write a novel of 50,000 words in 30 days. Here is a summary of how I did!

NaNoWriMo 2013


As you can see, I didn’t quite make it to 50,000 words. I finished the month on 42,858. For my first try though, I’m quite proud with how much I got done! I started off quite slowly but in the last few days of the month my word count shot up. You can see my stats here.

The month was fun but very hard work. I had points where I could barely face the keyboard at all and other points where I couldn’t stop typing. My average word count a day was 1,438 but the number of words per day did fluctuate a lot. With 7,182 words to go I’m sure I’ll finish soon but I’ve taken a little bit of a break for a couple of weeks!

I’ll be trying again next year and am determined to win!

Did you do NaNoWriMo this year? How did it go?
