NaNoWriMo Comes to a Close

Well, folks, I’ve passed the 40k mark! I’m pretty sure I’ll be finishing up in the next few days. However, my blog post announcing the actual completion of NaNo will be a bit delayed, as I’m taking part in the December Eve Blog Party on the 30th and the 1st. So expect the wrap-up post for NaNo on December 2nd.

This is my second crack at NaNoWriMo. I won the first time, and I believe I will this time. But both attempts taught me a lot about my writing.

#1: I can write a heck of a lot of words when properly motivated.

My highest one-day word count this month was 4,700!! I started off with a bang, which helped to make up for lower days.

#2: It’s okay to step back.

I had several days this month where I needed to write only four, five, or six hundred words. My brain needed a break. And that’s totally okay.

#3: You’re only competing against yourself.

(And that’s the fun part.)

#4: Maybe I really do have something to say as a writer.

And maybe you do, too. 😊

#5: I LOVE making aesthetics!

Like this one for my NaNo project:

Anyway, the final NaNo wrap-up post will be coming in December! Stay tuned!
