I’m a winner!

I did it!  I completed 50,000 words during the month of November.  Well done to all of you who have done the same and to those of you struggling to finish…stop watching tv, reading a book or goofing off on Facebook.  Write!

Now…my thoughts on this journey for those of you who haven’t attempted this feat yet.

  • Trying to work on a sequel which takes a lot of thinking and planning is not a good idea for Nano
  • Editing…yeah I still have to do it as I go!
  • Word counter how I love to hate you!
  • Writing buddies are invaluable
  • The feeling you get when you know you’ve reached your goal…PRICELESS!

For those of you who have never given Nano a try I highly suggest you do so next year. 

Many people look at the 50,000 word mark and convince themselves they can’t do it.  Trust me…it can be done but it takes a lot of effort, time management and a good idea.

My goal for next year’s Nano:

  • start a completely new project for Nano
  • stop obsessively updating my word count
  • spend time helping others reach their goals
  • increase word count to 70,000
  • do my “I did it” dance again!
