Have you just hit a major milestone in your NaNo-ing journey?? Maybe you just passed 5k words? Or finally figured out that one scene that's been causing you trouble since the beginning? Your personal milestones are entirely self-imposed, but we'd love to hear when you reach one of them! So post below when it happens; you deserve the celebration!

It's not particularly impressive, but I'm pleased to have passed 1000 words. =)

Just passed the 5K mark! 

Also worthy of a mention, the novel I initially started has completely changed already and while I'm mildly concerned about how dark it sort of got, I'm also highly entertained with my characters and new plot direction.

I somehow managed to get a little over 3,000 words on the 1st day (thank you @Rumpelstiltskin for being my NaNo police, haha!!) :P 

ANNNDD, to top it all off, I do believe that the first of my three-chapter-goal is just a tad under being half-way to completion!! So there's that too!! :thumbsup:

Not much but 2 milestones for me:

 

1--I started today

2--I managed 445 words in the process.

Haha, yes, it was. I added a few new ones. If you find any you particularly love (or have a suggestion for one I can try to find myself), let me know.

Woo, I made it to 5,500 words on day 2 AND my first chapter (out of a goal of 3) is almost finished now!!! I know I won't have a whole lot of time to write over the weekend, due to work, so I am pretty excited with how much I got done over the past few days!! :yay:

Uh... craziness?  I always do 5k on the 1st, so that much isn't odd, but I didn't have to work so I spent a lot of time writing the last few days.  I got through the entire Pokemon word crawl, for example.

That's an actual Android emoji, which I don't think we can use ourselves, but I can look around for something similar. This one is a free open source version...how's that?

You guys are all doing amazing so far!! Keep up the excellent work <3

I myself have just hit today's wordcount mark, leaving me at 5,034! Not quite where I like to be since it's still so early (I usually like to be ahead) but I'll take it! :P

You know when you hit that part in the story where things start to make sense? I think I might be there!  I feel like what I've written today actually pulls together a couple strands of my plot.  I still feel like I should have planned better, but yay!

After not being able to write the last two days because I had a small breakdown, I managed to get to 10K today. Slow and steady wins the race, right? :P

Passed 10,000 words tonight!!! :yay: Am currently sitting on 11,475 total, and my 2nd chapter of NaNo is about 1/3 of the way done already.  :thumbsup:  If I can just manage to keep up this pace, I may even be able to get out - dare I say it - not just three, but four chapters written this month!! :P  We shall see though, we shall see... :whistling: Chapter 21 contains a LOT of filler, so hopefully I won't be tempted to procrastinate too much during week #2, haha!! :roflol:
