I did it! I survived CampNanoWrio – and I met my word count goal of 25, 000 words (wrote 25,384 in total). I managed to reach that goal, bleary-eyed, with frazzled hair at 10:30 pm – nearly the eleventh hour. Now I know how authors feel when the deadline is looming to the final hours, and that word count is crawling to the end goal.
