I Win NaNoWriMo!

And since I've won, my motivation to keep going has dropped drastically. Still making progress toward "The End," but not as quickly as before.

Here's my latest vlog post:


In case you didn't catch it last post, I'm doing a Goodreads Giveaway for a hardcover copy of The Complete Guide to Being Evil. Check it out!

Have a happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    Still got 2500 to go on mine, here's hoping.

  2. Congratulations, Laura! Keep at it. (But I totally understand how the motivation slides away once you hit 50K... just my slides hit in December. LOL)

    1. Congrats! Thanks, I've had a couple of purchases, and lots of my Kickstarter backers cashing in.

  4. Congrats on your NaNo win. I'm not going to make it, but I'm still working on the same novel I was when I started, which for me is a win of sorts.

    1. Well good! I'm sure you could get it finished up in December if you're dedicated.

  5. I have WON! thanks for your encouragement, I won NaNo one day ahead and for someone like me I have exceeded all my expectations, I'm very PROUD! but just like you I can't seem to have the same drive I had before to actually finish the book now after the tiresome 50k. And good luck with the publishing of your novel, Go You:) by the way, rats? seriously? My mom would kill me.

    1. Good job! Meh, I've decided to take a break and tackle it in January. I think I should probably rewrite what I have so far before finishing it. Part of the reason I lost motivation is how much I floundered with this one, trying to figure out what to do with it. Now I know even the most well-plotted novel can feel aimless. And yes, rats. Did you watch the linked video? So smart, and fuzzy!
