NaNoWriMo 2011 – Pencils Down!

Aaaaaand we’re done.

How’d you do? I didn’t do so well myself. I couldn’t get over that 35k block fast enough (or indeed, at all), and when I looked around last week for the motivation to persevere, I just couldn’t find it. What I’d built so far felt so disconnected, it may as well have been 9 chapters from 5 different novels. It didn’t seem worth continuing just to prove that I could do it. So I didn’t.

But!

I did write over 31,000 words this month, which is considerable and much more than I’ve written in quite a while. While I’m not considering this a “win” by any means, it’s definitely progress, and at the end of the day, taking a step forward with your writing, no matter if it’s a thousand words or fifty thousand, is really what it’s all about.

So welcome to December! It’s time for chores and books and other writing projects you’ve been neglecting for the last 30 days!
