Where Nano Left Me

It is the Last day of NaNoWriMo.  Several of my writing friends cleared their 50,000 word goals last week, some intend on squeaking out the last couple of hundred words today.  Me . . .  I am about 10,000 words shy.  Could I pound out those words today? Probably.  Would they be of any use to my current projects?  Probably Not. So I will let my count stay at 41,596 and be happy with my progress.

That's not to say that the time I dedicated each day to NaNo wasn't productive.  In this month alone, I have finished a YA Sci-fi manuscript, completely edited a YA Contemporary, and used my spare writing time to explore three new YA ideas. So where did NaNo leave me . . .  re-reading the first two, rough chapters of each new idea, polishing them up, and making the tough decision of which WIP to focus on next.

To all of you participating in NaNo, a huge congrats to those who have completed the challenge and sending lots of encouragement to those hoping to crank out the last few words today.
