50,000 words and onwards…

Today I hit the 50,000 word NaNoWriMo milestone. Actually, I raced past it at some speed.

So, I’ve collected my certificate, some stickers for the blog, and – when November is over and done –  will find some free goodies in the end-of-NaNoWriMo winner’s bag.

BUT – and this is important – I’ve not finished my novel. Yes, I’ve got over 50,000 words down and that is quite an achievement. No, I haven’t got to the ending yet.

This is my promise to myself: this year I WILL finish my NaNo novel.

After that, of course, what  I’ve got is a rough first draft. A very rough first draft. Then the hard work really begins.
