NaNo is over, and I didn’t win, but I’m still writing. NaNoWriMo was a huge help to me, a big push towards getting back to writing regularly. I especially enjoyed my friends on the Well who also took part, and the fun we had talking about our writing and encouraging each other.
But I am a slow, slow writer, and not good at the sprinting style NaNo requires. So I’ll keep whacking away slowly at my novel through the next year, which is what it will take to finish, I think. But I am happy that NaNo gave me at least a little kick in the pants. Writing fiction is hard work for me, but very satisfying. I’ve been away from it for years, and I’m happy to be back.
