I always start a story, wanting to turn it into a novel, but stop halfway and never really finish it. My new goal is to actually FINISH the novel, and not give up on it. 3 weeks ago

My novel writing has taken a hiatus, due to the fact that I accepted a new job in the spring and was involved in tying up loose ends on my old job, moving, etc. But now, finally in a rental house, I’m almost ready to start the process again. I’ve thought about my novel during the last few weeks and have even jotted down some notes. I should have Internet in two more weeks (which means when I save in Dropbox, it’ll be updated).

I actually have many novels/series in the works, but there is one in particular that I would like to get finished. I have most of the plot down and the main characters done, but the ending is quite difficult to come up. I’m excited to get my fingers typing and have my story forming on the screen. 4 months ago
I started a novel for NaNoWriMo in 2011 and got about 20,000 words in before I got overwhelmed in a new life and lost track. Last year I was determined to finish but I couldn’t because I had lost my job and spent the entire month looking for work. But this year, I’m starting early! My goal is to complete NaNoWriMo this year, and to help I’m pregaming my book! I want to have all the notes and thoughts outlined well in advance so I can spend the entire month just writing without thinking much of the plot or characters. 9 months ago
I hit the 20,000 word mark this morning. The first draft is roughly 25% done. 9 months ago
...is any indication, I should average about 15,000 words per month at the rate I’m going, writing for 30 minutes each weekday morning. If I throw in one marathon Saturday each month and aim for 10,000 words, I could conceivably be finished with the first draft by the end of March. 10 months ago
I really want to move on to writing the other stories I have, but the editing process seems so daunting. 11 months ago
How I did it: It was a process of stops and starts and many days of feeling like it would never end.
