I made it to 50,150 words today. The deadline to finish isn't until tomorrow, but I'll be busy most of tomorrow, so I wanted to finish today. I'll be taking a short break from writing, or at least writing with a deadline, but my story isn't finished yet. Actually, it's not even really close to being finished. I do plan to finish my story sometime though. Then again, I'm also still telling myself I'll finish my stories from 2009 and 2010. (And I will! I really will! Someday.) Hopefully this year I'll do better about finishing my story in a timely manner. I'm just glad I managed to win again this year. There were a few days in there when I wasn't sure it was going to happen.
Nanowrimo always gets me re-interested in writing. Now I just need to hold onto that interest through the year! I've made a start. I have a sequel idea for my story, which will hopefully push me to finish it. I also wrote an 810 word intro to another story this morning. I wanted to capture the idea before it got away. And of course there's always finishing my stories from 2009 and 2010. I am making a (pre-New Year's) resolution to write more the rest of this year and next. Whether I keep that resolution remains to be seen.

Woohoo!! Congratulations! I stopped at 7150. Meh, that's more than I've written (in terms of fiction), forever. :)

Hey, the purpose of Nanowrimo is to write, not necessarily to hit the 50k mark. At least you wrote!

I'm also a winner by my own standard, although not by official NaNoWriMo standards. I was nowhere near 50,000 words (my final count was 10,623), but I did manage to write slightly more than I did last year. :)

As I said above, the point is to write, not necessarily to hit 50k. Congrats on being a winner by your own standards!

My next goal is, like yours, to *finish* this story. It's the same one I was working on last year, so in total it is over 50,000 words but I figure it's only about 2/3 done.

I have actually wanted to talk with someone about writing endings in general and how I'm going to end this story in particular, so let me know if you'd be interested in an email conversation about that. :)

Sure we can have an email conversation about writing endings. Maybe it will keep me motivated to finish mine!
