NaNoWriMo is finished for another year! And yes, I DID end up barely making it to 50,000 words! It took a lot of effort and hand-wringing and hemming and hawing…and coffee! So much coffee! ALL THE LATTES!
When things got tough, I resorted to writing for a variety of stories instead of sticking to one novel (as is recommended). I’ve always been a bit of rebel in that fashion, but this year it was the only way I would be able to get some words on the page and somehow finish by the 30th.
To all those who just wrote 50,000 words in 30 days: GO TAKE A NAP! You’ve earned it!
