First off: my apologies. Save for my progress bar for my novel, I didn’t really update this blog all November.
I was hard at work on my novel, but not hard enough. I never made my daily word quota, my most productive day 1400 words. My final word count: 23923. Almost — but not quite — halfway.
That’s a personal victory. Last year due to exhaustion from work I didn’t even write 19 K. New director for my work program and I topped it.
Here’s a little ‘secret’ about NaNo: getting to the finish line is great, but even if I had just written 1 word, I would already have won. The number of people who have even begun a novel before is minimal.
