End of Nanowrimo - what?!

what November looked like for me
Challenge: 30 days to write 50,000 words.
Challenge accepted!

I can't believe today is the last day of Nanowrimo or National Novel Writing Month. It was my first time participating, and it was a lot of fun. Honestly though, the entire November was such a blur to me - full of late night and early morning writing sessions in between 'real life.' Overall, it was exciting, and thankfully, I managed to reach that 50,000 mark on Day 25 even though I seriously doubted myself along the way. 

I think I still have about 30,000 words or so left to finish the story, but just the fact that I have words down now and an actual story is very encouraging to me.

I have to thank the entire Nanowrimo community as well as the writing community on social media, specifically on Instagram. Of course, I have to thank my boyfriend for pushing me to write everyday and for understanding when I can't.

Now time to write more, to finish, and then to edit 0_o. If you also participated, I hope that you hit your own personal goals for your novel too!

  5. Congratulations on your first NaNoWriMo experience and on your first win! =) Will you be doing it again next year? Or participating in the Camp NaNoWriMo opportunities coming up in, I think, April and July? I'll be participating in April since I had to bow out of NaNo this November due to tendonitis. (Sorry, tried to comment as my WP name, but it kept showing the preview and the publish button then never publishing when I hit it.)
