NaNo Homestretch

Day 28 of NaNoWri/ReviMo. Only a few days left before it's officially over! Though for most of us, its not even close to being over for reals.

But it is the last lap. That means we have to turn on the afterburners. Pull into the pit stop for one last fuel up. Raise the sails to take advantage of that winter cold front moving in. Throw some water in the face and ignore the blisters.

It's been a great November I have to say. The comradery I've felt has been amazing. Everyone has been so supportive and inspirational. Seriously, I have been blown away by what you guys have been able to accomplish.

Though, I have to say I am really looking forward to December. I am nowhere near done with my revisions unfortunately, and so I will have plenty to do, but I need a little break. I need some Christmas music, I need some cold nights in with the fam watching Elf and Christmas Vacation, I need some egg nog and snowflake-shaped sugar cookies, and I need some cuddling by the fire. Sounds good, eh?

BUT NOT YET! Pull your head out of your turkey, Jessie...you have three days left to go (including today). Get crackin'!

How 'bout you? You almost done with NaNo? Ready for December?

  1. Jessie, Enjoy December! That sounds a lot funner than being stuck at the computer. But good luck finishing out November strong!

  4. I JUST hit my 50,000 mark of my unintended nano projects.

    I've been tweaking a few different projects in the meantime, but yeah. I'm hoping to slow my brain down in December and enjoy my family and what it's like to just RELAX.

  18. Congrats to you for participating in NaNo. I didn't do it this year, as I'm stuck in revision hell and pitched to three publishers this month. It takes a ton of dedication to follow through. Way to go.

  22. I'm not doing NaNo, just don't have it in me (for me it takes the fun out of it) - but congratulations to you on getting there!
    December I am most definitely ready for!

  23. I am SO ready for December! I've been playing Christmas music since Halloween, and if I had a fireplace, I would be cuddling up in front of it right now. Good luck persevering! I know you can do it!!

  24. You're right, the comeradery has been brilliant. I've loved seeing the last lines edited by everyone. It's also made me realise that I'm not alone in this game.
    I met my targets in November, but it's all starting again in December, but maybe not at quite the same intensity :o)

  25. The closest I've come to writing a book lately is this blog. But I think it's wonderful to write every day, it certainly forces my brain (what's left of it) to work!

  27. Good luck with your writing!

    I'm ready for December, too . . . not that I hate November or anything, but December is one of my favorite months.

    Thanks for coming by and following my blog. :)

  28. I am so ready for December. I did regular Nano, and just "finished" yesterday. You guys are the real heroes for revising all month. Seriously. *shudders* I fear editing, yet I have so much to edit...

  29. Love Elf! I did a big revision project in October/November and it's been nice to slow things down a bit as the holidays approach.
