With a very sick child who did not go to preschool the first week of the month (she only goes two days, though), I did not get the big start I had been hoping for. But, I have carved out what time I could. My fingers have been tapping on my keyboard like crazy! And I'm loving it.
Basically what I am doing with WNFIN is using it as motivation to complete Part One of my book. I had already completed what is often called the data dump phase. It is part of my normal writing process. WNFIN encourages writers to polish their work, and that is exactly where I need to be on this project right now.
Unlike NaNoWriMo, there is no repository for WNFIN where writers report their progress. It is not a contest. Which is fine, because word count does not motivate me. Nor do I particularly care to compete with other writers. However, I will go ahead and share with you that as of 11/12 I have a document that is over 80 pages and contains more than 23,000 words.
More importantly, I am writing every day. I am energized and really in love with my Work In Progress (WIP). I'm having such a wonderful time. I'll check back in at the end of the month and let you know how it all turned out...
The Red Dress Club asked me to guest post today about my experience with WNFIN. Please be sure to stop by and check it out!
