I'm off to bed on this, the last day of November, so I leave you with my final MiniNano totals for 2012. It was a lot of fun, even though I didn't actually sign up for NaNo and won't get a prize or anything.

I did the Mini challenge with my new friends (hi everyone!) to get past the holdups in the final draft of The Dancer, which should have been published months ago and wasn't, due to not being finished. The support and encouragement were a huge help, as was the low word quota. Some days it would only come 500 words at a time, and it was great to be able to say I'd done my work for the day and just let it go.

But the book was finished in under two weeks, and then there was a new idea that came all in a rush, fresh and happy and begging to be written, so I decided to see if I could do 50,000 words of it by the end of the month. Or even if it had that many words in it. (I think now that it will have about sixty-five.)

Now that you're all caught up, here's how it ended:

Today words: 2,985

Total words of new untitled novel: 50,657

Total words of The Dancer written in November: 18,132

Total MiniNaNo words: 68,789

Thanks again for all the love! I couldn't have done it without you. <3
