NaNoWriMo: On Finishing


Alright guys, we’ve finally made it to the final stretch! We’ve finished 3 weeks of writing furiously and we’ve got just one week left to finish it out.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had a LOT of feelings so far in this process.

There’s been a lot of:


And also some:




There’s even been a little:


But the best parts have been:


And those are the parts that make this whole thing worth it.

If you’re like me you’ve still got quite a bit of writing left to do, but you can see the finish line out there in the distance.

Any of you who’ve already reached 50,000 words I applaud you but I also curse you because I AM SO JEALOUS!

And even if you can’t see the finish line in the distance, you’ve still got a week left to catch up!

Whatever point you are at right now, we’re almost there and I totally believe that all of us can do this! We can get those words down and we can finish!! And even if we don’t get to the 50,000 word goal, any and all words written this month are a success.

I for one am so proud of the progress that I’ve made this month. Even if I don’t get 50,000 words written, I can say that I’ve written every single day so far this month. If that’s not an accomplishment then I’m not sure what is!

Let me know in the comments what you guys have accomplished with your writing so far this month and what you hope to accomplish in the next week!

And before you go, definitely check out the rest of our NaNoWriMo posts from this week for a little more inspiration:

    I honestly feel like I’ve written more this month than any other whole year of my life. I managed to only skip two days so far, and that was the past week or so. So I’m a little behind but still feel pretty on track. Although last night I got to a point where I was just literally typing my thoughts and questions about what the hell the character was doing.

    That’s always how it is for me too!! I write more this month than I do all of the other months of the year combined! I’m really hoping to continue writing everyday, even if it’s just a little bit, once NaNo is over this year. We’ll see how far those good intentions get me tho! lol
