The end of NaNoWriMo 2008

By Katharine Swan On Monday, December 01, 2008 At 12:01 AM

NaNoWriMo 2008 is over, and I'm sad to say I didn't finish — I never got above 14,000 words. However, I have every intention of continuing to work on my novel. I will be aiming for 100,000 words total, and I will use a non-NaNo word count widget for my sidebar.

I also plan to continue blogging about my progress, even though NaNoWriMo 2008 is technically over, so stay tuned!

Congrats. You made it about 6,000 words more than I did!

LOL. It's the small victories that count, right?

I was planning to get back to work on my novel today, but I have spent the day being stressed and depressed about my deadbeat client. With a tight Christmas on the horizon, I found the new developments unfolding in the deadbeat client drama rather discouraging.

Blogger Lori Says:  

I'm using December as my Nano month. November was too busy with work, amen. I don't expect to be swamped this month!

Sorry about the deadbeat stuff. I think Susan over at Urban Muse was having difficulty with some clients who closed up shop, as well. It sucks because there's no recourse beyond getting in line and hoping by the time they get to you, you warrant even a small compensation.
