I Did (NaNoWriMo) My Way

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?

I am an oil-and-water combination of humor, ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, procrastination, and drive. I am an aspiring romance novelist who writes by the seat of her pants. Waging and sometimes winning a daily battle with procrastination, plots, characters, and the day job.
