Ack! This was not a good year for me in regards to NaNoWriMo. I managed to squeak out about 7,500 words. I'd love to list a whole bunch of excuses but I really have none. I wasn't "feeling" the story but honestly, that shouldn't matter either.
What I did learn is this...
- Writing is work. Yes, I enjoy it, but it's not always about "feeling" the story. It's about getting the words out of my head and on to the paper.
- I have a lot of ideas floating around my head. If I don't put them down somewhere they will fly away forever never to return.
- I really do want to write.
That last one is probably the most important one for me. I have said I have wanted that for quite some time but I have yet to make the time to do anything about it.
I am using this year's NaNoWriMo to propel me forward in 2019 and work on writing - daily. I will be working on getting those ideas out of my head and on to, um, paper - digitally speaking.
So while I didn't win this year by completing 50,000 words, I learned a lot about myself and how I need to structure things in order to make my dreams a reality. Here's to more writing in 2019!
