I’m not a NaNoWriMo Winner…But I’m No Loser


As you probably already guessed from the title of this blog post, I didn’t complete a 50k word novel in the month of November. It wasn’t for lack of trying, and no I am not making excuses by saying this, but I ended up getting a new freelance gig, a new part-time job and a couple of personal things came up throughout the month of November.

I finished out the month-long writing challenge at just over 34,000 words.

I know, so close. Maybe I could have just pushed through and made myself finish on time, but I don’t feel bad about not completing my manuscript in time. I’m still working on it, I think I’ll have the first draft completed by the end of 2012….gosh that feels weird to say type ;). Where did November go? Oh, yeah, now I remember last month, I spent a good portion of it hunched over my laptop!

Ah, NaNoWriMo, you’ve bested me again this year….maybe next year I’ll finally complete a 50k word novel in 30 days. After all, third time’s the charm, right? 🙂
