50K? o-o Words? As in Word count? <:/ Gosh...how much is 50 pages worth of words??
*checks*
O_O; Uhh...well...I expected 50 pages to be WAY over the limit, but...
it looks like it's only a quarter of the way. Q_Q;

yep, 50,000 words.

this year (as i did in 2014) i'm doing a few connected stories - in 2014, i had 5 stories. this year i have 4 so far that relate to the world i created in last year's NaNo... and one that's so totally not. XD

if you want, i can link you to last year's, it's a whole new created world, i suppose the genre would be fantasy-ish.

*pulls up spreadsheet*

2011, i got to the 50k on the 21st, finished with 65,020 on the 28th
2012 - on the 22nd, finished with 51,151 on the 23rd
2013 - on the 22nd, finished with 53,500 on the 24th
2014 - on the 20th, finished with 53,585 on the 23rd
2016 - on the 20th and finished with 50,366
2018 - on the 20th and finished with 50,650

in 2017, i was a "Rebel" and finished a novel that i'd previously started, since NaNo is all about starting writing on nov. 1.

O.O wow! That's a lot of writing!! Quite the accomplishment. :] for 4 consecutive years. That's a whole term of US Presidency! x]
:[ Gosh, I wish I could write that much. I'm not sure if it'll be hard or easy though, >w>; because sometimes I get on a roll, and other times, <~<; I just get stuck writing and just forget about it for days..or I'm busy with other stuff. <:/ I would like to write more consistently though..writing is easier than drawing for me.
Was it hard to write every day for an average of 24 days? :/

thanks!

if you get on a roll, it's easy... LOL!

i tend to "write by the seat of my pants" for the most part - i don't really outline too much, or flesh out my characters until i start writing about them.

as for if it's hard? not really, but there are things that get put off. generally at night i watch tv, play online and crochet. during november, i'll write. and while my tv shows might be on the tv, i may not always watch as intently as i have in the past. and while i'm checking my email, i may skim through it and lurk on my forums instead. and my crocheting isn't so much either. that's why i didn't write in 2015 - no idea of what to write, and i had a number of larger crochet items i made for the hollydays that year. and i do a lot of writing at work, too...LOL

:D I see.
Did you follow a prompt on the seat of your pants, or did you just write whatever you could about whatever you liked for the day?

well, 2011 and 2012 were based on scenes from a dream - well, 2012 was all based on one scene that i had to put in there somewhere. but they did all start with a prompt that i came up with, and then i just took the story wherever. i can link them, if you're interested. (they're all linked over on my Rav profile, so i can just c&p)

:D Sure, I'd like a link!
I'm planning on a prompt for myself, ^~^; but I haven't really decided on which prompt to go forward with yet.
