I’m nine days behind in announcing my win for NaNoWriMo, and twelve days behind in celebrating it when I actually met my goal. Yes, I wrote 50,000 words in 28 days. But I had to. On the 29th, I was leaving for an early Christmas Vacation.
But I also want to let everyone know that 50,000 is just a number. That whether you wrote down 500 or 500,000 over the course of 30 days, is still words that you didn’t have before! And that’s a great success! Too many people cannot even put one word on a page, but you saw this challenge, looked it in the eye and accepted it. So if you made the arbitrary goal of the program or not: you wrote something, of your own free will, because that’s what you want to do. And that makes you a writer.
If you are interested in a beta reader, or just hearing some general feedback from another perspective, I’m happy to take a look over these chaotic creations from November. Let me know what was the best/worst/hardest/enlightening part of your journey through November!
