Oh boy. I'm so glad it's December.
This was my first year to participate in NaNo and overall, it was a pretty good experience. I developed a habit of writing everyday, which I hope will stick with me.
But did I write 50,000 words, the answer is not quite. It's the wierdest thing, I was going strong had about 3500 words to finish on Monday, and a big chunk of time to get it almost done, and I ran out of steam. Right at the end of the race. This is really strange for me, because usually when I set a goal I comlete it.
I really don't know what happened, maybe it was getting to the end of my story (I hate endings), maybe it was my total mental exhaustion (from a combo of things NaNo being only one), maybe it was having to host book club the following night. I don't know, but I wound up at around 46,578 words.
Oh well, I also have a MS around 79,000 words that needs a lot of revision. So I'm counting it as a success even if I stalled at the last lap.
What about you guys. Did you complete your NaNo goal for this year? How was it for you?
