I’m glad I did NanoWriMo again this year. Even if my novels don’t see the light of day, it’s good to be writing & for it to be fun. This year’s effort I just finished. My program had more words than NanoWriMo’s official validator, so I had a bit of catching up to do, but not by much. I know this one will need work too, but I’m glad it’s done.
Today and yesterday were not great breathing days for me, so it made it harder. I also had to play catch up a few days because there were days I could not write at all, but still I managed. Only finished a day later than last year.
I’m glad I put forth the effort to try. I can always rework these novels later. It’s just nice to have a sense of accomplishment for finishing something of my own on my own. I may try it again soon without a deadline. I know some people knock this program, but I’ve met a lot of cool people because of it that I might not have otherwise. Plus, it’s productive, one of the few things I can still do, no matter how I feel & that makes me feel good since I’ve lost a few things I used to enjoy doing.
I’m happy with my effort. But also glad to take a break and maybe do some other type of writing that’s not as intense as this can get at times.
I’ve also decided to make a change with my blog, in December I’ll just post as I feel like it. That may be twice a week, or only once a week or not on a schedule at all.
I still have some reviews and things I know I’ll want to include, but since not much is going on & I don’t want to talk about just the wait over & over, things may slow for awhile.
I think that’s ok. Time for me to be selfish, instead of worrying about other people’s expectations & thoughts.
