Well, I did it. I wrote 50k words in a month.
I’m not as excited as I thought I would be.
Oh, you know, some of it is that I’m on an emotional rollercoaster. Some of it is that I’ve done this a number of times before. It has kind of lost it’s excitement. I’ve done NaNo for about 8 years now and I have won 50% of the time. The only difference is that this year I came out of it with a novel that… wasn’t finished. I’m kind of excited about that because that means I may actually be writing a NOVEL length novel!
I’m glad it’s December though. I’m happy to cut my words back a little and have time for something else. I gave myself a free day today and I’ve played some catch up and cleaned the house and done the laundry. I’m at a great starting place and I’m about to head into some Guilt Free Gaming. Now I just need to decide if I should live all of December like this or give myself some crazy challenge, like organizing the whole house.
