Okay I must admit, nanowrimo was a lot harder than I anticipated. I finished not quite at 28,000 words… a little over half the goal. Yikes! I’m sure it didn’t help that they chose November (the only choice that would have been worse is December), as it’s so busy for me - seriously some days I barely have time to go to the bathroom. That’s what I get for having a largely seasonal business.
Ah well, all is not lost. I really enjoyed the challenge and now I have a pretty good start to a really solid piece of work that I actually like (a rarity in and of itself). I will definitely be finishing this puppy before too long, and what the hell - may even submit it to a few publishers. Not like I have anything to lose except my pride, which I already lost many years ago.
The challenge was great fun and I can’t wait to participate again next year. Maybe I’ll “train” for it a bit before jumping into it head first next time. Maybe I’ll do a couple of practice nanowrimo’s on my own. January looks good, and at least it will be much quieter at the workplace then.
Thanks for the memories, Nanowrimo!
