My first attempt at NaNoWriMo and I finished a day early — Nov. 29th. Woohoo! It’s a good feeling to meet my goal. I almost gave up this week with all the raw emotions running through our home because we lost a close friend.
I channeled that emotion and it powered me through the final words of my 50,000-word novel. It felt good to lock myself in an empty room and write.
The secret to NaNoWriMo is to not critique or edit, but just write. I know my plot needs work and perhaps a complete overhaul. There are few good bits to my novel including the characters and the settings. I’m planning on facing the editing process in 2022 after taking a break and getting distance from my work.
How do you feel when you reach your goals? What makes you give up when you decide not to follow through?
Great job! I’m so impressed 🤩
Thanks! It feels so good to be done!
Congrats! You did better on your challenge than I did on mine. I only posted 14 (15 if I make one today).
I think this was my first challenge. It kept me motivated.
Congratulations! Also, I’m so sorry for your loss – it must have been a tough week.
Thank you. Yes it’s been hard to be hosting family and friends under the circumstances.
Awesome! So proud of you! Hugs, C
Congratulations! It is something I have always wanted to try but have chickened out using lack of time. I know it is bogus but it is the only excuse I can find.
I’ve chickened out for years. I’m glad I finally did it.
If you’re looking for an editor, im looking to become a freelance editor.
Thanks, but I am so far away from that point. Thank you for the offer.
