Thanks to NaNoWriMo and my new “resolution” to get up earlier, I have finished the first draft of my Mythological Romance! During November, any time after about 4am, if I woke up, I got up. I pushed myself to go downstairs in the dark and start typing away. It worked! Not only did I hit my goal for the month (over 50,000 words), but the habit seems to have stuck! I’ve done it multiple times now through December and Sunday, I wrote “The End”!
As difficult as writing can be, I realize that it’s the easiest part. Now I have to start the 2nd draft and edits. I’m excited and looking forward to making this story the best it can be, but I’m nervous because I get distracted so—-squirrel!
I hope NaNoWriMo was great for everyone that tried it this year! And even if you didn’t hit 50,000, any added words you got onto paper is more than you had in October!
