Post NaNo


I did NaNo on the QT this year. I wasn’t sure I was going to make it. With tons of grading, running a brand new project, more grading, a writing conference, Thanksgiving, and more grading, I just didn’t think it was going to be possible. NaNo was going to be the thing that I had to give up.
But there was no harm in at least starting it. If I didn’t make it, no problem. And there were quite a few times, especially during the conference, where I didn’t do any writing at all.
NaNo is something I will probably always attempt because it neatly sums up the writing life. There are always going to be things going on, and if you don’t make your words for the day, that’s okay. The important thing is to keep pushing forward. Keep adding to that word count.

I didn't do NaNo this year. I'd hoped to, but a whole lot of things got in the way. The month just flew by. Hope you at least made a good start, A3. I'm revising a NaNo novel I did 2 years ago. You're missing a fab party with the romance writers on Saturday--how about making a fast trip to Connecticut?
