Five years ago while in College, someone, probably a professor, told me about NaNoWriMo; National Novel Writing Month. That first time I was told about it I of course considered doing it but it never came to fruition. I also thought about whenever November came up but never managed. It was always there though, in the back of my head. It was something I knew I wanted and needed to do. Well this year I finally did it.
This is honestly, probably one of the biggest accomplishments I’ve done in a long time. It got really stressful near the end because of Thanksgiving and visiting friends out of town so there’s kind of that area where I wasn’t getting as much written. Although, that’s also because I was starting to get writer’s block a bit.
Despite the struggles, this was one of the best things I’ve ever done and I will definitely be doing it next year. It’s really something to be proud of. I unfortunately didn’t finish the story in 50,000 words but I’m close. My plan is to try and find time in between work and making my family their Christmas gifts to finish it this month so in January I can do all of the editing. Perhaps I’ll post the first chapter or two soon on here.
