I just came away from the NaNoWriMo website after having validated my 2012 NaNo novel. It came in at 50,225 words.
If you recall, I'm a NaNo Rebel this year and instead writing a new book I decided to add some real estate to the book I've been working on this year, A Trick of the Light.
A Trick of the Light is now at 87,074 words, and I'm not finished with it yet! I'm expecting to top out at 100,000 words, easy.
As for yesterday's Fast food for Writers, who can eat when you're writing for glory! Get something from the frozen section, if you must. You won't regret it!
