NaNoWriMo: Week 4 (Did I Win?)

Hello writer bees!

Is it just me, or did November just fly by? I swear it was November 1st like two days ago.

So, the big question. Did I reach my goal? Nope, not even close. I almost got half way, barely. Around 30k ish words. If I’m honest, I am a little disappointed, I wish I wrote way more.

But it wasn’t a total bust.

On a positive note, NaNoWriMo got the ball rolling. It got me thinking about the story as a whole. It got me writing. Even just a little bit. And at the end of the day, that’s what counts. I added new scenes and rewrote some old ones. Writing a novel isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon. And I’m in this race for the long haul.

I’ve recognized the bad writing habits are still there. And although difficult, I’m working to breaking them. I really need to fix those. A New Year’s resolution perhaps? Let’s add ‘be a better writer’ to the list.

I’d like to start editing soon. Maybe as I delete and revise my draft, more ideas and words will come. Here’s hoping, anyway. My real goal is to write the best novel I can, no matter how long it takes. But life is short, and I really need to write more often, just to reach that “published” finish line.

I just want to say thank you everyone who supported me in my endeavors this month. Every ounce of encouragement really kept me afloat. So, thank you all so very much! And congratulations to everyone who participated in National Novel Writing Month this year.

How was your NaNoWriMo experience this year? Did you reach your goal? Tell me all about it in the comments!

Write with Heart,

Lady Jabberwocky
