Completing NaNoWriMo: the view from the top

NaNoWriMo 2014 winner banner

I’ve done it! I’ve reached the summit of the 50,000 word mountain. 

Last night I hit 50,000 words and boy is the view good from up here. 

As I’ve mentioned in pretty much every blog post about NaNoWriMo, I’ve found it quite difficult this year. Last year it was really easy and breezed through but this year I’ve had to wrestle with my story. Which left me feeling like giving up so many times but I ignored the voice and did it! 

My novel is a bit all over the place and during December I’m hoping I can complete it and get it in some kind of decent order so I can begin editing it. 

Of course no completion of NaNoWriMo is without it’s reward, so keep an eye out for a few more beauty product posts. 

How’s NaNoWriMo going for you? If you’re not there yet: keep going, you can do it! 
  • Woo congrats!! Glad you made it to the end – I want to do it next year 🙂 x

  • Yay, congratulations, Rosie! That’s a heck of an accomplishment. I’m very curious to hear what your story is about 🙂


  • Thanks Cat! I found your email address on your blog, I’ll send you an email – not brave enough to put it out in the public domain just yet.

  • Thanks! So am I, there were so many times I almost gave up. Go for it 🙂 They do Camp NaNoWriMo in April and July, so you could always get some practice in there. Here’s the link if you want to find out more – 🙂

  • Congratulations – that’s amazing! I did horribly this year… well, actually I guess all together I did about 30,000 but I stopped exactly halfway through and started a whole new story. Whoops!

    I have around 8000 of that and I think I’ll chip away at it in December… at my own speed this time though.

  • Ohh thanks! Will check it out 🙂 x

  • 38,000 words in one month is pretty impressive, whether you keep it or not. It’s nice to have the time as a challenge but it does put a lot of pressure on you. Hope your writing goes well in December 🙂

  • Congratulations on winning, that is fab!
