And that’s pretty much a wrap on my first NaNoWriMo. While I wouldn’t call it a raging success, I do have 35,000 words more than I had a month ago, so that’s gotta count for something, right? Right?
I’d say that at least 34,000 of those are probably terrible, except that’s not strictly true. It’s not the words that are terrible, the words are great, all words are, the problem is the way they’ve been strung together. But, as I keep hearing and reading, you can’t edit something that doesn’t exist, so at least now I have a task to keep me out of trouble for the next 7 to 10 years.
But, in all seriousness, I’m really glad I participated, and was surprised with some of the things that came out of me once I got on a writing roll. It has definitely given me the motivation to keep plugging on in the hope that one of these days I’ll work out how best to arrange all those words.
How did everyone else’s month go?
