National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo ended Friday. While I had high hopes, I knew writing the 50,000 words to win was a long shot. I would have considered myself a winner if I hit 10% of that. Alas, I fell short of that goal too. (Why do they have NaNoWriMo in November? There has to be a less busy month!)
On the bright side, I did over 700 words better than last year and completed 6%. Also I wrote more in November than I have since I started keeping track. Ironically, now that NanoWriMo is over, I wrote almost 1100 words today! Apparently my desire to finish my current chapter for my ANWA group is stronger motivation than National Novel Writing Month. Happily I finished said chapter this morning.
Maybe a more realistic goal is to finish my novel before next year’s NaNoWriMo competition. While I’m dreaming, maybe I’ll finish 5000 words next year!
Did you NaNo this year? Any winners out there?
