Annnnd…November is over. Nanowrimo is finished. That went fast!
It’s kind of cool to think that all around the world, people are like me, collectively sighing with relief that the madness of National Novel Writing Month is over. We’ve fried our brains, deprived ourselves of sleep, and typed letters and words and sentences through the worst of our writer’s blocks, striving for that ever elusive word count.
Now it’s over. And I don’t know, but I think I kind of miss it.
Sadly, due to tests and essays and the sudden development of a social life (wait, what?), I did not reach the 50,000 words. However, I can hardly say I’m disappointed with myself. I did end up with 100 pages and 36,193 words. That’s about 99 pages and 36,000 more words than I would have written normally. So, I’m calling this month a success.
I still have plans to finish my book. I had a TON of fun writing it, and I feel like it’s worth finishing, if only for myself. And my parents, because they want to read it too. I’m also feeling inspired to write another one.
So I guess that most important thing that Nano taught me is that I really might be able to write novels! Yay! Nanowrimo may be complete until next year but I don’t have to miss it because I can keep on writing.
