When I began the NaNo journey, I had no idea what I was in for. 50,000 words in 30 days. 1667 words a day. How hard can it be?
Well, all I can say is that the people who have have full time careers or are stay-at-home Moms (which is also a full time career), and actually finish NaNoWriMo, are the real heroes. Congrats! to all of you. This is definitely an endeavor, of which to be proud.
Now, that it is over, I am hoping to make sense out of the first draft of my novel and mold it into something that I would be proud to submit to an agent and/or publisher. Or even to self-publish, whatever the case may be. This experience has given me the confidence to work even harder to accomplish my dream of being a novelist.
I must say 'thank you' to my family, who understood what I was trying to accomplish and steered clear of me this month of November, for the most part. :-) My twitter NaNo friends, who were so supportive and helpful with writing tips and inspiration, I thank you.
How many of you will be signing up for the April Script Frenzy?
If you have a minute, please post some of your NaNo nightmares.
Thank you, my friends,
