NaNo 2020 is Over!

NaNoWriMo is officially over and I wanted to take a moment to reflect on it. The struggle was… well, just that. Much like every year, I started out strong and encountered various fluctuations in my writing patterns but, unlike years past, I didn’t give up. Now that the month is over, I can look back and feel a great sense of accomplishment.

While I didn’t hit 50k words, I developed writing habits that I’ve been striving to achieve for years, and in terms of the project itself, it is leaps and bounds ahead of where I expected it to be at this point in the process. I am walking away from this NaNo feeling excited and energized instead of tired and defeated.

My words of advice: no matter what word count you ended up at this year, remember that you wrote! You did it! That is the whole point and I applaud you. Happy writing and I celebrate your future writing endeavors 😊

I am an author slinging short stories along with the almighty novel. I have been writing since my high school days on through to adulthood, moved over the years by my peers and the prose of the greats. The written word is my burning passion. Besides writing (and also reading a lot) I spend my time being: a dad to a beautiful little human that is growing too fast (along with parenting a few pet animals), a husband, and an avid traveler to the wilderness. I graduated from Purdue University and I live in Chicago, IL.
