A picture is worth a thousand words ….
I managed to squeeze out 50,650 words, and actually put an ending to the novel. Nothing like having closure. But these last few thousand words were hard to write. I didn’t have writer’s block. Rather, I didn’t want the writing to end.
But all good things come to an end and now I must get off my numb butt and return to the life I left behind a month ago!

I can’t believe I’m making this much progress! I’ve never written a novel and I can’t say that this one is very coherent, but NaNoWriMo is truly serving its purpose with me. I’ve gained a lot of confidence in myself as a writer this month. More than I’ve ever had in my life.

I just uploaded my novel-in-progress to the National Novel Writing Month website (www.nanowrimo.org) and I have over 43,000 words! Only five more days to write and reach the 50,000 word mark. I’m pumped! And I’ve learned a lot.
This is my first time participating in NaNoWriMo. One thing I’ve learned is to write early and write often. I started off with over 2,000 words on Nov. 1 and then was stuck there for several days while on a business trip and then while recovering from that business trip. In hindsight, I should have skipped the social events and just gone to my room to write. Even though I’m now up to speed, I’ve had to sacrifice practically my whole Thanksgiving weekend to writing!
Well, I’ve learned and next year, I’m sure I’ll take my advice: Write Early and Write Often!
