So, how did everyone fare this time around?

Have you collapsed from exhaustion?

Are you asleep now? :D

Did you complete a whole story or are you going to work on it a lot more?

I won! But my novel is far from complete. It's probably only 1/4 done at most. I'm taking a break from it for now to catch up on other stuff.

I failed. So. Hardcore.

At least I have a side project now to work on in the coming months of boredom.

Only 41,000 words to go!

I didn't finish :/ I only got about 33K but I think the whole story will be around 50K, more or less. This was my first Nano, and I loved the challenge! I knew where the story was going and how it was going to get there, but it was so cool seeing this world evolve around my characters, whole families and races popping up out of absolutely nowhere but making the story so much richer. Next year I might go with the YWP so I can keep my goal reasonable. Nano doesn't work well with school and disagreeable parents.

I managed the 50 k.
Whether I "finished" a story or not is a matter of opinion. Technically, I finished one prologue and one story, and finished plotting another story... but my NaNo this year was a collection of loosely related plot bunnies (they were meant to be standalone, with scenes that merely suggest connections...though the prologue applies to the entire group), and I didn't finish the collection.

Oddly enough, I finished plotting out that one story, in spite of my nephew interrupting to ask if he can watch Doctor Who (about ten minutes before we had to eat dinner and then leave for Cub Scouts :roll:) about the same moment I validated my word count.
That was the last thing I've done, NaNo-wise. The next day I began carving up those plot bunnies and sorting them into their respective stories and files.

I had to go to bed soon after cub scouts, but not from a NaNo induced coma.
I had to get up early to meet a student. Yay, job! Now if I could just get more hours.

I actually finished my story with 35k. AH! I started a completely different story to get to 50k, so now I have 2 short stories. I don't think I'll do that again.

Finished on 11/26 with 50,376 according to NaNoSite verification. More words than I had last year and earlier finishing time. I don't know how I was able to do this since I had more going on in my life. I've got three people reading through for me. No exhaustion. A day of over 5K and a day of over 4K. Both felt good. I was running low at the 5K day.

I made it to 50,000 just in time. I hit the wall soon after when the need to go back an edit overwhelmed me. I stopped to protect my word count but now I'll soon be be combing through the mess. Once I do that I can press forward again.

I have barely began telling my story as I've written longhand when ever a scene popped to mind that wasn't ready to be put in the story as I was writing yet. :}
It's a horrible mess. And I love it. :D

I know, but getting all the scenes in order and typing them out so others can read them too, makes me wish I had an assistant to do it for me. :}

I wrote tons of scenes I'm almost positive I won't even use. <_< But it did let me practice battle scenes themselves! ^w^

I now know what kind of an order the scenes will have as well, and I added some kind of quite random but eventually important defensive force to my novel. :3
And I love my plot line myself. x3 I'll definitely stick to this one. x3

I didn't make it. November was just too full of bad luck. Two deaths in the family, lost a job, found a new job, godfather's mother had a stroke and I've been over at his house almost every evening helping with her... the list goes on. :( This was my first year failing, and I really hate the feeling. I'm totally exhausted and I feel like I have nothing to show for it. My story is in tatters and I hate it...

Yea, I'd say that was a hellacious dabble in bad luck. Please get some rest and make sure to take care of yourself. Hang in there and keep your chin up.

I made it. I have a vampire named Canth who is allergic to blood, and a were-wolf who is named Bruce, who is a bad influence to everyone in someway, but he is still a a nice guy.

But I still have a ways till the story is completely finished. And there needs to be lots of editing.

didn't meet our goal of 100k, but we did make it past our results from two years ago (still tallying our final numbers) and this is a continuing storyline, so the story goes on.

I reached 50k, and conveniently my story was only just over 51k: I wrapped up the plot on the same day I finished the challenge. :-)

It definitely needs a whole lot more work, though. :laughing: But not right now. It was pretty exhausting.
