NaNoProgess: Day twenty-nine & Thirty

Word count day 27: 48,827

Word count day 30: 50,036

So I am doing another double up in my post! Its the first day of December, I mean, this is crazy! Its felt like a lifetime since last month!

I hit 50,000 words on my beloved novel! Though I didn't finish it... That's right, Clandestine is still in the writing process. I manged to reach my climax at 45,000 mark. So that means that the story is going to be longer than 50,000, and heading towards 60,000 to 70,000 words. I knew this would happen!
So over the month of December I am going to finishing writing it. I want to have a finished draft my January!
The good thing about writing the end of the novel in December, is that I will have more time to go over the dramatic turn of events. I realized that I need hours to just go over one scene. Just to come to grips with the matter at hand...

All that matters though, is that I WON NaNoWriMo!!! This was my first year! And I really cant wait to do it next year. (I will make the time)

I will continue to add my word count in the top left corner of each blog post, for catching up with my word count and such. 
I was talking to Mum today about revision. I am so exited to start revising, but will not lay a hand on it till its done! Any how, I was talking to her about how I was making a bucket list of things I want to experience in my novel. Every thing (expect for the feeling part, that was all me) I have written in this novel has been due to pure imagination. Many of the events, places, and experiences are things I simply had to imagine with great force! 

So over the next year, I will be revising and re-writing my novel. And gaining experience in some of these plausible areas. 

List of some of the things I am going to do: 

  • Ride in a tram, or a train.
  • Learn how to speak some Latin. And gain the understanding of the ancient language. 
  • Look inside a school, either a public or private. 
  • Go into an alley. To see what it feels like to be crammed in-between two buildings. 
  • Stand in an Ice cold river.
  • Take a look in an abandoned clock tower.
  • Feel snow falling.
  • Go to a proper grave yard!
  • Take a tore of a Victorian house (going to do that soon)
  • Go to a BIG library. (Thinking the university's bound to have one)
  • Go to a chapel.
  • Go to a convent. 

So that is all I can think of at this moment. And as you can tell, I have a bit of a road a head of me! (I'm crazy)
I'm looking forward to this new adventure. Not only for my characters, but for me as well.  



  1. CONGRATULATIONS darling! I'm so proud of you!! So looking forward to reading this when you are done.

  2. Congratulations on winning Nano Wrimo. I was hoping to do it this year but I just didn't have time. Will definitely do it next year. I would love to read your novel when it is finished too :)
    Again, congratulations and keep writing.


    1. Hey Tayla! Thanks so much. Defiantly give it a go next year... it may be tough, but its worth it in the end. (Sleep is a required reward at the end of it)

      And I love your new blog, definitely going to follow you :)) So keep up the blogging! :)
