Milestones

Recommended Posts

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!

Um, I actually started my story? lol I don't know if anyone counts this as a milestone, but despite signing up for JulNo, I honestly didn't think I was going to follow through. But hey look, I wrote 400 words since the stroke of midnight, 1 July! :P (also yes, it's officially July here.)

I just hit 5000 words, so I'm on track.  I really don't think I have 45k left in this story though, so I'm going to need a second project for the end of the month.

I finished chapter 1 of my story tonight, and I'm actually excited to keep writing it! I'm enjoying the characters so far. 

Also, I wrote a little more than 2.5k today, so I'm back on track and a little ahead ☺️

*breathes*

I've hit 5K of my 15K goal. :D And I've finished the first draft of my oneshot. I'm not going to carry on writing right now, thouse -- I'm going to go back to this one-shot and try to edit it. And after that, I can continue with the rest of my word count.

 

...still can't believe I chose to do JulNo lol....

I hit 5k yesterday as well! So far I've been consistently meeting my daily goal of 667 words, which I'm super thankful for haha.

Unwritten Curse

I started writing! :yay:

I don't have a Word Count goal, just a finish-this-WIP goal. I suppose my goal is to finish this chapter by the end of the weekend.

I somehow hadn't been able to get alot of writing time in yet I managed to get 20,837 words for a story that is still very much in its rough draft stage and so far that's pretty good since it's within my word count goal range! I also managed to figure out a scene in a fanfiction that I didn't want yet also will be making sure to replace it with a new one! So far, so good!

I hit 5k!! 🎉 

But the more significant milestone (at least to me) is that I wrote OF for the first time ever!! It’s just this short drabble thing that may or may not ever get posted, but it exists and I’m oddly proud of it.

That's so amazing! 🤗 You should definitely be proud, OF is hard. ❤️

Also, I just finished (a rough and very extremely unedited) one-shot for How to Train Your Dragon! And it's like super short and fluffy but it's one of my favorite franchises ever so I'm really happy that I managed to get a story out for it. 😊

Congrats on 5k of OF!  Creating your own world is no easy task and you're doing it!  What genre is your OF?

 

I hit 10k today.  I'm behind, but at least I'm writing today after a couple days of nothing.

Just crossed the 10k line!! :greenstars:

And I started the word doc for the epilogue of Complicated. I’m writing out of order (aka writing chapters 45, 46, and 47 simultaneously why am I like this), but the fact that I’m close enough to the end to even start writing the epilogue is wild (and has me majorly in my feels because I still don’t know how I’ve written almost an entire novel).
