When Someone Steals November #WIPmo Check-In You Guys!

I know everyone says this every month once they become a legit grown-up, but WHERE THE HELL DID THIS MONTH GO? Someone stole November. Just a week left and boy am I glad I didn’t commit to NaNoWriMo. Cuz I would for sure be punching myself in the temple right now, drinking extra mugs of hot chocolate and Baileys with extra whip creme, and calling myself a NaNoLoser. Also, now that I’ve seen how this month has gone doing WIPMo, I know that I probably won’t do NaNo until my 3 year old is in school–and if I’m still at home. Because CRAZY.

Somehow, I finished my WIP, but sincerely, it’s SO not done. I just got to “The End” of the first draft and it’s short as hell (42,500) and I know there’s a frick ton of scenes, character development, plot development, and just everything that I will be filling in for draft two. So I guess this week will be fun (ACK) and December will be too. (ERG).

Check in–whether you’re Nano or WIPmo or a shoe shiner in Grand Central–I don’t care! We will do a final check in on December 1.

  1. I have been following this WIP-mo all month and really wanted to join, but I’m still working on my Nano. HOWEVER, I passed the 50K mark a couple weeks ago, so TECHNICALLY it’s now a WIP, so I’m joining 😉

    Current Word Count/Estimated Word Count until you write THE END: I’m not even keeping track of word count anymore. It’s insane. I have four more chapters to go and I’m going to do everything in my power to finish them this week…but, I may not make it, and that makes me sad and frustrated. 😦

    In my Writer’s World, I’m thankful for: Epiphanies that happen while I’m washing the dishes.

    In my Real Life World, I’m thankful for: My family, who lets me whine about my writing and doesn’t care when dinner is late.

  5. I got so wrapped up in PitchWars prep I forgot to check in!
    Name: Sonia

    Category/Genre: NA psychological suspense

    Current Word Count/Estimated Word Count until you write THE END: Current word count 67k, and I can stick a fork in this baby because it is done!!! I finished my sixth draft this week, and I’m going to give it one more read to make absolutely, positively sure it is really done. But it will probably just result in me moving a few commas around.

    In my Writer’s World, I’m thankful for: WIPmo!!!! This has been my constant source of motivation to really get my WIP in shape and ready to go. So happy I didn’t wait for November to get started.

    In my Real Life World, I’m thankful for: Being on vacation this week. It give me a much needed break from that pesky day job type thing, and more time to spend with my kiddies over the holiday.
