I'm pleased to say that I "won" NaNoWriMo last night while at my final write-in of the year, reaching 50,243 words.
I'm happy with how the month went, partly because it didn't feel as difficult as it usually does to write every day, and partly because I'm hopeful that this time I've created a daily writing habit that will stick.
I think my graphs are pretty interesting. This is the overall word count graph, where you can see that I had some big jumps and some small jumps, but overall kept steadily writing all month long.
This graph breaks down my daily progress to show what I accomplished every day, and how individual days stacked up to other days.
NaNoWriMo now also awards you badges throughout the month. I was going for the daily update badge, but since I didn't write on Thanksgiving, I didn't get that one. The other one I didn't get was the daily par badge. It says you would have had to meet par, which for NaNoWriMo is 1,667 words every day, but I don't know if I could have gotten that one by meeting the lowered par each day after some of those big writing days.
All in all, I'm pretty pleased with my achievements for this year's NaNoWriMo.
Stay tuned for more as I revise my word count goals for the novel, strip away some word count that I counted for NaNoWriMo and don't plan to in the actual novel draft, and make some changes to my blog.
