Nanowrimo is finally OVER! To be honest I am actually beyond thrilled for it to be over. I can finally be with my family, relax, chat with friends, read more books, and try to think of something else that I may want to write in April. Right now, I don’t really want to focus on writing. Sort of. I already have something in mind.
I love writing. I would love to be a writer when I grow up, but it is stressful and I have a feeling that every writer is going to say that sometime in his or her life. I have spent the last two months writing something that I may or may not let it be published. It is kind of a lame idea, but it means a lot to me. I think that is what matters the most.
This was my first year doing Nanowrimo and I thought that I wasn’t going to do it at first. I certainly didn’t want to write on Thanksgiving because Thanksgiving is a time to spend with your family. What’s better than staying on your computer, enclosed in your room, writing all day long?
In case you didn’t really realize it I actually meant it or not, I was being sarcastic.
If I wanted to do Nanowrimo, I would have to write earlier. November is usually a nerve wracking month for me full of festivities. I wrote two months ahead because I had an idea buzzing around in my head like a bee trapped in a soda can. It wouldn’t fly away. That meant that I had to write it as soon as possible.
I was actually pretty proud when Gears of Ember was finished. Even though it isn’t edited yet, and it will probably take a long time for me to edit it, I still love it. It came from my heart and even though I’ll probably be the only person to read it, I’m still very satisfied with the finished novel.
Also, I wrote 100,000 word this year! That is a HUGE accomplishment! Next year I am aiming to go higher! Let’s just hope that my arrow hits the bullseye next year.
All in all, Nanowrimo is amazing. It is a great way to unleash my inner writer and for me to learn how to get better and to urge myself. Most of the time I quit because I honestly think that I can’t do it, but when it comes to writing I can write all day long!
See! I told you!
Overall, Nanowrimo was a blast to the moon. See what I did there? I mentioned the moon because the theme of Nanowrimo this year was space. Yeah, you probably knew. Nanowrimo is a blast and I can’t wait to do Camp Nanowrimo in April and Nanowrimo again in November.
