Well, my Nano project, "Murder On the High Seas," clocked in at 30,023 words by midnight on the 30th (or 30,102 words if you take the website's count). Either way, I missed 50k by a bit.
While I would've liked to have hit the 50,000 word mark last month, I am not as disappointed as I expected to be. 30,000 words are still a lot. It's my best one-month word count since 2011. And I'm probably halfway through this particular novel, which is not a bad thing.
My current goals? One is to write 20,000 new words of fiction this month. That will give me 180,000 words for the year, which is my goal for 3013. This doesn't count the column, or exercises I'm doing for a short online workshop I'm taking. These are either for a novel or a short story.
Another goal I have is to get my latest novel, "Redemption," published. I have some copyedits I need to finish going through and then it can be put out. I hope to have it up before Christmas - I will announce it here when it comes out, and JJ Press will also be making an announcement about it.
Remember - it's better to try and fail then not to try at all. What are your goals for December?
