November has left us behind, and with it, the rush of word counts known as National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. This was my fourth year participating. For a while, it looked like it would also be my first year losing, as a second job I took for the season ended up frequently getting in the way of writing. But over the past few days, I managed to write over 10,000 words and, on the last day of the month, catch up in time to win. I will admit that my writing project ended up being more of a self-contained novella than a full-fledged novel, but I’m fine with that. In fact, I have some definite plans for the piece I wrote this year.
How about you? Did any of you participate in NaNoWriMo this year? If you did, how did you do?
