NaNoWriMo 2017 Diary | Week 5

I’m done!

Or… I’ve reached 50,000 words, and have officially ‘won’ NaNoWriMo. The draft is only at the midpoint.

I’m going to take the rest of the week off (so… tomorrow, since the whole ‘writing on weekends’ thing didn’t work for me at all this month), and then get back to work on Monday. I’ll have a proper postmortem for you soon; this year’s project has taught me a lot, and I want to talk about it… just not today.

Today I need to stop thinking about the story for a few minutes.


  1. Congratulations! 😁

    And I used to call ’em “postmortems” until my colleagues trained it out of me for being “too morbid”. We prefer “retrospectives” now. 😁

      I suppose ‘postmortem’ is a bit morbid, but I like it. It fits my approach. 😁
