10 Facts about My First NaNoWriMO

It's December 1st, and November and my first NaNoWriMo are behind me. Definitely an enlightening experience and more.

Having been asked not too long ago what my passion in life was, I would now have to say that Learning is my passion. The facts listed below illustrate a large part of my learning over the last 6 years and the last 30 days!


1.  I finished with 21,599 words.

2.  I was short 28,401 words.

3.  My initial outline for Tutankhamen was 4,000 words.

4.  Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend ended up being around 28,000 words.

5.  Young Knights of the Round Table: The King's Ransom is currently at 23,400 words and at the editor.

6.  Guinevere took 5 years to write, edit, and publish.

7.  Young Knights has taken 2 years to write, rewrite, and now edit.

8.  Tutankhamen-An Autobiography took 8 months to research and outline, and 30 days to write the first draft!

9.  My fundraising goal for Young Writers was $250; I raised $255.

10. I didn't make the 50,000 words, but I still came out a winner and richer for the experience.

Thank you all for your support.

And to my writing buddy, Alice. Let me know how you finished NaNoWriMo.
