I gotta say, I have never, ever written that many words on a single story in one month ever. NaNoWriMo rocks. I now know I can write fast, that I love Twitter #wordwars and #1k1hr, and that I can commit to writing every day and Get. It. Done!

Such a good feeling. Now if I can just continue a similar pace for December, I can meet my goal of writing a whole first draft this year.

Suddenly I feel very tired.

Anyway, as promised, this is my graph. If you look closely, you can see all the days I slacked, the weekends I caught up with a tremendous burst of words, and, most importantly, the overall consistent effort to moving forward.
I am so proud of myself right now. :)

How is everyone else doing on NaNo? Didja win? Get close? Write anything? Congrats to you all! :)

Come back Thursday for a chance to win David Farland's new e-book, Nightingale. And find out how cool I really am. :)


  1. Congratulations. I won today as well. Your graph kept me writing because I could see how well you were doing and felt guilty. Also, those #wordwars on Twitter saved me. I've never had so much fun writing. See you again next year.

  2. Great job robin I'm so happy for you. I didn't do nanowrimo this year. I should have. I really needed the productivity push. I've been languishing for half the year on this first draft.
    You're an inspiration.

  3. Woot! And you didn't think you were going to participate. November sure turned out different than you thought didn't it. Love the graph picture. I can't wait to read this one.

    And I've already downloaded Dave's book. I was reading the prologue and was totally sucked into the story. I just have one commitment to finish and then I can read his.

  4. WAHOO!!! Yay, Robin, you rock! Must feel really good. Congratulations on a job well done!

  5. Yay, Robin! Good for you! I finished the first draft of my WiP in two weeks, which I'm thrilled about. I never thought I could do it, but I did! Again, good job!

  6. Congrats! I won, too, so pretty happy about it. ;)

  7. Congrats, Robin. I'm sorta jealous since I FAILED!! In fact, you're so cool, I gave you an award on my blog yesterday. Come by and get it if you want.
