Well, this year NaNoWriMo was an utter fail for me. A perfect storm of nonsense kept me from writing, or even trying to write. Some of the nonsense was good: a very successful book launch, a finished draft, a new job. Some of the nonsense was just plain nonsense.
However I look at this as a learning opportunity. While I wasn’t able to finish, I did get about 20,000 words written and am super happy with them. I also wrote the draft I finished at the beginning of November in 28 days, so I’m calling it my win.
No matter what, I’m planning on doing NaNoWriMo again in the spring and fall, so I’ve got three more chances to write books in 2019. It’s gonna be awesome.
