#NaNoWinner2018 – I did it!


It was a tough race to the finish. I was behind by 13K words coming out of the weekend, but I was fiercely determined to finish my novel by November 30th. I had a week to write 21,461 words.

So I devised a method. In a ten-minute sprint I can write 300 words. If I could just do two of those an hour for the seven hours Alex was at school, getting to 50K by the end of the month would be a piece of cake.

And guess who’s going to the store to buy cake? (And all the groceries I’ve been running out of all week.) ME!!

About an hour ago I finished my sixth novel!!


Author: Linda G. Hill

There's a writer in here, clawing her way out.

  8. Congratulations! I managed to break the figure (okay, I stopped today at 66000 but I’m retired, so time isn’t a thing), but the problem with pantsing it is that I haven’t taken it to a conclusion yet. Hopefully, I can get there pretty soon. I need my MC to die, but he’s refusing!


  9. Congratulations! I’m so happy for you!
