I won! How did you all do?
I ended up writing around 18,000 words from the 27th to the 29th. It was a lot of work, and I don’t want to that ever again. Seeing as I’ll probably be working a normal, 40-hour job in November next year and not spending something like 65-70 hours a week on schoolwork, I’ll probably never have to do it again! Whoo!
I’m not done with my novel at all. I don’t know how many more words I’m going to need to finish it, so I’m going to set my goal to 75,000 words. If I reach that goal and I’m still not done, I’ll up the goal to 100,000.
Overall, it was a really stressful month. There were multiple days where I didn’t write anything and multiple WEEKS where I barely wrote anything for my novel. On those days, I was working on schoolwork – including typed homework and lab reports. Overall, I wrote 68,825 words in November – which, combined with a five-hour exam on this past Thursday night, has really aggravated my carpal tunnel.
Because of that, I’ve banned myself from writing anything until finals week is over (the 12th). I won’t be having finals every single day, but I’m still going to need that writing break.
I’ll probably be making a post towards the end of the month on my goals for 2016.
