NaNoWriMo, writing

NaNoWriMo 2019

National Novel Writing Month is over for another year, and I finished the month of November with about 37,000 words written of my new fantasy novel.

I’m disappointed I didn’t make my initial goal of 90,000 words and finish my novel, but I knew starting the month that, while possible, it was always going to be a long shot.

I’m disappointed I didn’t make the NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000 words. I came close, but with ill health and a book launch in November, I couldn’t get over the finish line.

I’m disappointed that I joined two groups to help me get through NaNoWriMo and reach my goal, and I didn’t avail of the opportunities they presented.

I’m pleased that I started my novel, and it is progressing quite well. I’ve 37,000 more words written than I did at the beginning of November, so that’s something to celebrate.

I didn’t get a winners certificate this year, but sometimes it really is the taking part that matters. How did NaNoWriMo go for you? Did you make your word count? Did you finish your project? Any writing insights you learned along the way?

  1. Congratulations on writing 37000 words of your fantasy novel during November! Considering you have been sick and launched your new collection of short stories during the same month, I think this is a great achievement! You should be very pleased you have written so much in one month – if you did that every month, you would write almost half a million words a year! It’s less than you hoped but give yourself a congratulatory clap – it’s 37000 more word than you had at the start of the month!!
