Happy end-of-November! I'm about to lose NaNoWriMo!
And that is absolutely, 100%, this-isn't-sarcastic, okay!
Really! I'm about to lose NaNo, and I'm completely fine with it! I have accomplished so much this month!
- I've written for this first time in years.
- I've begun a new novel, the sequel to Collateral, that I've been wanting to write for a long, long time.
- I've planned out the majority of that novel.
- I love the writing I've done.
- And I've written nearly 30,000 words!
That's on top of all the things in my personal life: starting a second job, hosting a currently-apartment-less friend all month, having a different friend visit for four days, being on a doubled dosage of a pill that makes me super tired, Christmas shopping, family stress, and everything else. In other words, this month went wonderfully.
I feel a tiny bit disappointed for not reaching 50,000—as I'm sure all of us who didn't do—but overall, I feel good. I had an amazing NaNo buddy in @bittersweetflames (hi, Carla!) who encouraged me through her own busy month. I had great advice along the way from @abhorsen. and so many others, rat-raced with some great people, and I feel great about what I've accomplished.
So I guess this is a blog about the journey, not the destination.
How did NaNo go for you? Did you meet your goals? (Congratulations!) Did you fall short, but still feel good? Did you fall short and feel disappointed? Any feelings, post them below and we can reflect!
Thank you for reading!
