NaNoWriMo is closing in to the end, only 10 1/2 days left. I started NaNo but never finished. I wrote 6,000 words and decided to take a break from NaNo this year due to many committments. For those who are still plugging away, how are you doing? How many words do you have at this time? Do you feel you will obtain the 50,000 words or more? Are you enjoying the process? Is it making you insane? Do you obsess about NaNo and your novel? Are you hoping to publish your novel? To those that are still at it. Congrats! Barb

I've only written like a thousand words...I kinda got busy then lost "inspiration." I still intend on writing as much as I can though. Whatever I do churn up from this year's NaNo I intend to publish. I pitched my plot to a class I attended a few years ago and they liked it :)

I understand about the getting busy part. Life just kind of catches up with a person sometimes. Good luck with NaNo.

I have no plans to publish the novel. I normally use Nanowrimo to write things I would never in a million years attempt seriously. Right now, I'm at 38,974 words. So, I'm pretty much on target. I'll need to be at 40,000 by the end of the day. I was behind for a couple of days, but managed to catch up. I certainly hope I'll make it to 50,000.

I'm at 32,000 words right now and I have no doubt that I'll finish on time. I did NaNoWriMo last year (and won!). Personally (and please don't shoot me) I think NaNo is really easy. I've thought about my novel a whole lot and naturally I've spent a good deal of time on it, but it hasn't taken over my whole life or made me insane like other NaNo writers say it does. Yes, I want to get published, but I've got 4 other novels and some short stories that I've been trying to get published without much luck... so I doubt it'll be a quick and easy path for my current unfinished NaNo.
