Well, my novel-writing attempt ground to a halt at just over 27,000 words. I still have one chapter to write, so I may manage to stretch it out to 30,000. Although I didn't make it to the 50,000 word goal, I'm proud of what I did achieve, which was the longest piece of fiction I've ever written. I also learned a lot about what goes into writing a novel and it makes me respect anyone who has managed to write a novel, no matter how bad. I might try again another year and see if I get any further.
