830,000 Words!

By Darvell Hunt

My writing group, Authors Incognito. wrote over 830,000 words in the month of November.

About 30 members of our group participated in National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. The challenge was to write 50,000 words of a novel in 30 days. 11 of us succeeded and rest made good progress.

I personally wrote about 52,000 words of an LDS romance novel. I'm going to spend December completing it (I need about 20,000 - 30,000 more words) and then begin the editing process.

Congratulations to everyone in our group and everyone else who participated in the challenge! You can see Authors Incognito actual word counts here: AI NaNoWriMo.

How does a writers group that big function?

Darvell Hunt said...

Good question.

Actually, it's not a critique group, but rather a support group. And, it works rather well!

Glad to see you post Darvell. Congrats on the word count.

We seriously kicked some writing buttocks this month, that's for sure. Yeah us! Congrats on winning, fellow WriMo!
