Tuesday's With Jess: NaNoWriMo Completed

So I made it through the month of November and NaNoWriMo! With possibly the busiest November our family has seen for a while, I chose this one to participate in NaNoWriMo! I set a target of 15,000 words as a minimum and I achieved that! By doing 500 words five days a week and doing any extra work that the weekends allowed I achieved my goal!

So I have decided to try for 12,000 words per month in order to complete my story by end of March 2013.

So what did I think of NaNoWriMo? It was hard, but a good chance to see that writing 500 words per day is achievable - more than achievable - doable in fact in the daily world that is my life! There will be days when it will be a little harder to get to my word limit, but I can keep persevering!

For those that participated in NaNoWriMo how did you go and what did you think?
For those that didn't and who write, would you participate one day?

I'll be giving it a ago again next year for sure!


Jess' favourite genre is contemporary women's fiction and contemporary romance fiction. She also enjoys historical fiction with a focus on romance. She loves books set in country towns or farms with a cowboy featured in either historical or contemporary settings.

She is currently writing her first novel, a contemporary women's fiction/romance set in a small country town.

  1. Congrats on your 15,000 words, Jess! I think I was a little ambitious to hope for 50,000 words when I have only early mornings and nights to write, but I am happy with my accomplishment, and hoping I can finish the draft by Christmas. And then, I'll be throwing a third manuscript through my revision process, ay-yi-yi. :-)
