#28. Accidental 50K (Whoops!)

4 Comments

Helloooo Audience!

Just doing a quick check-in with you, because something most peculiar happened, this NaNo season.

Remember last entry when I said that the writers in Cosmam’s OverAchiever Chat can talk you into some crazy things?

Well, if you couldn’t guess by the title, I accidentally… may have possibly…

It was insane! And last minute! I was totally unprepared, and fully expected to fail!

But I don’t know, I spent the entire day at the park, with no pesky wifi to distract me, and just wrote. No Facebook, no people, no constantly updating my spreadsheet. Just words. And as the hours ticked on, the thought that I could actually finish this surprise 50kday was becoming more and more possible. So I went for it, and boy did it pay off.

So not only did I beat last year’s wordcount of 200k and am on wonderful track to blow this year’s goal of 300k out of the water, but I’ve got two successful 50kdays under my belt from this year alone! (And who knows, I may have enough energy to pull off a few more before the month ends :P)

Write like the wind, Audience!

#27. NaNo Check-Up!

Greetings, Audience!

So, after announcing my self-proclaimed Nano break, not only did I NOT take that break, but I accidentally crested 100k on the 4th.

(whoops)

And then, to make things, better (or worse), I ended up making it to 160k tonight.

Really, I don’t normally do this well. Last year, my monthly goal was 300k, which I missed  by 100k. It was still an impressive number, but I’d decided that under no circumstances would I miss 300k this year. Now, not only am I pretty much guaranteed to pass last year’s wordcount, but I could possibly pass it within a week of beginning NaNo, AND pass my set goal of 300k before NaNo’s  even half over! It’s insane!

Really, this awesome feat has only been accomplished because of Cosmam’s OverAchiever Chat. Big shout out to them. If it wasn’t for the other OAers there fueling my drive, I’d most likely be playing videogames and barely cresting 60k by now (#JustOAThings, I know). If you get the chance, go check out the chat. Everyone is allowed, because, if you’re writing, to us, you’re an OverAchiever! Plus, conversations get hilarious and weird there.

But beware, they have a habit of talking you into insane things. You only have to look at some of our wordcounts to see the crazy stuff we push each other to do. xD

Happy Writing, Audience,
