I could - and probably going to - make it, but that somehow makes it less exciting. Besides that I suck at endings, so I probably just going to keep writing until I pass 50k and drop out of the document.

My story is not even half way finished and I'm at 48k I'll make it to 50k but now I'm feeling overwhelmed with still having most of the story to tell even when this is all over, OH WELL.

I'm finally all caught up to where I need to be and should be a bit ahead by tonight. If I'm lucky, I'll pass 50k sometime tomorrow. If not, I'm sure I'll pass 50k on Wednesday.

I am thinking these last 1,000 are gonna be painstakingly long. I have to get from A->The End. Unsure on the route yet.

I'm overwhelmed by school but I also feel obligated to finish my story, which I've kind of lost interest in writing. I don't even know where to begin rekindling my creative spark.

Last minute freak outs? Yup, that's me-- over 13,000 words to go!! I really want to finish though. MUST finish!! Real life really got in the way this month. I'm sure I did better than most people who had major surgery 2 weeks ago though, right??

47233 and a lovely dose of writers block.

Why is my life like this.

Hit 50k today, not even close to being done, so I'll keep going until I do :D

Am having far too much fun with the whole thing to just let it drop at the 'finish', and once I'm done... who knows?

2 Days?!
Gah, I've got 2.5k left to write, and only two days to do it? Just as I'm running out of ideas as well...

This year totally sucks! I have like 2.5 days to write nearly 25k! I really don't think I'll make it, but I'm gonna try!

50K has come and gone and this story is still not finished. Relying on some virtual chat word wars to get 'er done, and wondering how I can transfer that into a habit of writing daily.

I got to 50k yesterday and validated. I didn't write a all today because I'm taking a short break before finishing the story.

So, that half of story I kept saying I didn't know if it would make it to 50k...not only did it get there, but I still have a couple thousand potential words left to write. LOL And then, off to revising it!

(Hopeful this doesn't double post -- wrote it once and it disappeared....)


I took advantage of my super long weekend (Wed-Sunday...perk of being a teacher in the US!) and plowed ahead and validated my novel at just over 57k on Friday afternoon. My novel is nowhere near done or what I would like it to be...alas, I can at least say I wrote a book. It will go on the back burner now since I have a HUGE project that will claim my soul from now until the end of March. I am going to try to edit, revise and tweak my novel on the side but it definitely won't get priority.

For some reason these last 5,000 words seem very daunting. I've come so far, but I'm still afraid I might not make it.

I made it to 50k on the 25th as per tradition. The story seems to be finished too. I'm already thinking of rewriting the ending massively - sometime next year.

My main plot finished on Saturday with 53k and change. I have three subplots to work in and though I would have loved to have passed 60k by the 30th, work and two major projects due in the next days have killed that plan.

Still, this has been one of the best NaNos yet for me, with passing 50k on the 19th, buying a Mac from a fellow WriMo and being designated an official minion by the local MLs xD

I'm not going to make it. I'm not suffering from writer's block, I'm not hating my story. But I can't write when my boyfriend is depressed, and his new retail job is making him horribly miserable so I'm having to be his therapist because his actual therapist cancelled on him today and I'm not going to be able to write at all because my head hurts and I'm worried about him and now I'm rambling and I'm not going to be able to write the other 12500 words I need before tomorrow and it sucks ;_;

Well, I finished with just over 50K. It's my fourth year and I've definitely learned some tricks (best one has been not to use contractions and write everything out!) Also, it seems that somewhere around 30K the story always takes a turn and COMPLETELY changes. You never reach 50K being almost 'done'. I try to stick to 2000 words a day, that give me a few days to play with (especially Thanksgiving). Editing should be fun. Rereading the first weeks' words is always so different the the crazy that takes over from week 3 on. It's like a complete alien takeover. Last year, it wasn't even all in English!

Congrats to everyone! It's not just getting to 50K that's the goal is getting the nerve to write everyday, and that is HARD. Yah Wrimos!!

I'm barely at 21K so much for a great starter year ._. but still it was fun and I've gotten farther on this story in this month than I have on any other story.
Cheers to a everyone, we did a great job!
