It is officially December, which means the end of NaNo has come. What started out really well ended in complete disaster for me.
I tried really hard but life took over, school got in the way, and I got very overwhelmed.
I only hit 1/2 of the word count goal for NaNo.
But I don’t think of this as a failure. I wrote more for my novel than I have ever written before, which is a huge accomplishment for me in itself. I wrote daily for the first two weeks, and then sporatically for the last two weeks. Even though I didn’t write everyday for the entire month, I still developed many writings habits, and I’m sure they will continue for a long time!
Before this, I couldn’t even write more than 1,000 words of a novel before giving up.
25,000 words is a HUGE thing for me. I never thought I’d actually be able to do this much. I will continue to work on my novel (at my own pace now), and I will write the words “the end” one day. Whenever that may be.
I would love to hear all about your NaNo’s! How did you do? Did you win?
Let me know in the comments!
