Hooray! I have finished NaNoWriMo 2011!

50407 / 50000 words. 101% done!

Of course I still have a lot to add onto the novel, but it'll be nice to do so in a slightly more leisurely pace. I love how NaNoWriMo forces you to push through the blocks and just WRITE and sometimes you come up with some really amazing stuff because of it. Other times, though, you end up with really drawn out, boring "eating breakfast" scenes or what not, and I look forward to not having to write anything else that I know, as I'm writing it, isn't going to work.

All in all though, I really love the way this novel is shaping up, I love my main characters way more than I expected to, it's going places I never anticipated but am really enjoying and just, basically. SQUEE. I haven't posted any other excerpts for various reasons, but I do hope to eventually finish and edit and revise and edit and revise this, and then I'll be looking for serious beta readers, so if anyone is potentially interested in that down the line, please let me know. :D

And now, a Wordle made from all 50,000 words because I always like seeing them. My last one was very full of LOOK/LOOKING/LOOKED and EYES so I made a conscious effort to try avoid over using those terms. I think the results are interesting. I'm especially amused that this particular Wordle has put the character Soo Min's name in order backward, so it displays as Min Soo, ahaha.

Anyway, YAY!!! Any of you attempt/finish NaNo this year? :D

I sure do like using my MC's first name . . .
