Since 2002, I've participated in Nanowrimo, also known as National Novel Writing Month. Each November, I try completing a 50,000 word novel. Some years I've succeeded, and some years I've failed. Either way, I still enjoy it.
Every year at around this time, I start thinking about Nanowrimo. I've been attempting to write 50,000 words in a month every year since 2002, and though I've finished only 5 times ('only'), I've still enjoyed it each year.
I've attempted to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days for the past 13 (what?) years now, and while I've only succeeded four times, I've still enjoyed the process. So, here I go again! I'm hoping I finish this year!
So, guess who's doing NaNoWriMo this year after taking a three year break? That's right! I've broken out one of my two NaNoWriMo shirts and banged out my 2000+ words for the day! I'm pretty pumped! Exclamation points!!!
Hooray, I finished NaNoWriMo! I am absolutely surprised I finished, what with the setbacks I faced this month; I got sick a few times, work was insane, and my laptop died on me halfway through the month.
