The Finish Line – NaNo Week 4
November 30, 2015 § 2 Comments
After many writing slumps and days spent feeling genuinely quite awful about how my writing was going, I did eventually end up getting to the finish line. The great thing about working on a collection of short stories for NaNo this year, is that I could actually finish up in 50,000 words, instead of getting to the 50k mark and thinking, “well, gosh, another 50k – maybe more – and I might finally be finished this book!” It was nice to have a sense of finality with this project.
Today is the last day of November and to everybody who has already hit the 50k mark, well done! You guys deserve a pat on the back and probably a good long sleep. To everybody who is still striving for that 50k, you can totally do it! And to everybody who has struggled their way through and knows they aren’t going to get to the 50k mark by midnight tonight, a well done to you too! NaNoWriMo has always been about writing and to write even a thousand words that you wouldn’t have otherwise, is an achievement!
Hope NaNo went well for you guys and here’s to another good NaNo next year!
