While I didn't enter this competition myself, I was following the previous thread about how everyone was going with writing their novels with interest (it sounds really cool; I'm thinking of giving this a try next year so I can finally write that schlocky fantasy novel I've always been meaning to write). Now that the month is over, I was wondering how everyone went with their writing. How did it go? Did you make 50,000 words?

The previous thread was in the lounge, actually. Me, I quit at 22k because I wasn't having fun forcing myself to write at such a pace, and my first draft was about 20% lower quality than usual.

I got as far as considering it, researching the information necessary to get the details in the ballpark (the concept was a somewhat hardcore variety of SF), and writing a 1500 word detailed outline. I even figured out what plot points needed to go where in each chapter, and I got all this shoved into my project management software. This was November 1st.

I got no further due to a suddeh overload of actual money-making work. Oh well... next year!
