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?
