I Finished National Novel Writing Month!
As I mentioned at the beginning of the month, I decided to try to write the first 50,000 words of a novel for the National Novel Writing Month challenge. After a long month of writing, I’m happy to say that I met my goal of 50,000 words. This surpasses my previous record for writing in one month, 45,000 words.
The novel I’m working on is tentatively titled The Silencer, and here is its logline: After witnessing a murder, a teenage city slicker and the girl he likes must rely on her dad's outdoor skills to survive when the relentless killer pursues them into the wilderness.
Since I’m aiming for The Silencer to be 80,000 words long, I still have around 30,000 words to go. I’ll let you know when I finish the first draft.
Did any of you write a NaNo novel, or try to?
