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 😊
