Congratulations to anyone who put words down on the page this year, and congrats to those who tried NaNoWriMo. Instead of feeling bad about not succeeding year after year, I took the time and restructured the contest in my own best interests.
And I did the damn thing.
Eleven days ago, I won NaNoWriMo, and I did it my way. I wrote a lot. I started the outline for a script and drafted 12 pages at the end of November. I went to writing sprints, and I wrote and worked through plot holes every day during those 30 days. I wrote a bit on the cozy mystery and realized that I need to go back to the planning blocks. I reshaped my historical romance, and I added words to several novellas I need to finish. (Fingers crossed that I get this romance novella out this month.)
For December I am committed to a new knitting project and am still trying to get my writing revised. I’m excited and motivated, but like with all things, I am doing it my way.
How did you fare during NaNoWriMo? Are you spending this month revising and editing?
