Update on Nanowrimo

Dec 9, 2014   //   by Christina   //   General, Latest News  //  No Comments

Since it’s almost 10 days into December, I thought I’d give you an update on how Nanowrimo went, as promised. October 31st always starts off so wonderful, full of promises and potential. Tomorrow would be the glorious beginning to the year I would finally reach that resplendent word-count goal. It’s how I always feel at the beginning of another Nanowrimo, and it shows in my post here. However, like all previous years, I’ve failed to reach the requisite 50,000 words. I sabotaged myself on the very first day, when I actually forgot it was November 1st. By the time I realized that Nanowrimo had started, I was already a day behind, playing catch-up. It spiraled downwards from there. I think I made it to the end of the second week, realized I was over 10,000 words behind schedule, and gave it up for a lost cause.

Congrats to those who actually reached their word-count! And for those of us who didn’t quite make it, you’re awesome for even trying. The hardest part is always the beginning, after all.

We’ll see if I make my sixth attempt next year or not.
