Guys, I won National Novel Writing Month!

I still have about 10K left to write in my story (the end — scary!), but I’m so super happy to have made it this far, and with time to spare. Yay!

To celebrate, I thought it’d be fun to share the Love List I made for this WiP, tentatively titled Stars Like Dust. Love Lists are kind of my favorite. ❤

Here’s what I’ve come up with so far…

Castle Turrets
First Kisses
Flower Gardens
Foreign Words
Fortune Cookies
Hand Holding
Prayer Rugs
Sandy Beaches
Salty Water
Shooting Stars
Star-Crossed Love

And a few of the visuals I’ve spent hours staring at…


This a kissing book, obviously.
Would you expect anything less out of me? 😉

    This looks and sounds awesome, Katy! I haven’t done a love list in a while, but every time you do one I always think it’s such a great idea. Congrats on winning NaNo. I’m very impressed at how disciplined you’ve been. 🙂

      Thanks, Jaime! Fear of failure is a very powerful motivator for me, especially with something public like NaNo. I hope you make a Love List soon… I’m feeling super nosy about the story you’ve been researching and plotting. 🙂

    Your love lists are always so awesome and inspiring! I should really do one for my current WIP now that you’ve reminded me. Congrats on winning NaNo, Katy, and good luck getting that last 10k down! 🙂

    Congratulations Katy! That’s brilliant. Unless I write 14,000 words tomorrow I’m not going to win, but I had fun and it’s gotten me back into the habit of writing everyday.
    I love your love list, sounds like my kind of book 🙂

    • Katy Upperman says:

      Thanks, Alexa! And wow… Even though you didn’t officially “win,” you wrote tons of new words, which is such a huge success. Best of luck finishing off your story. I’m cheering you on!
