NaNo Update #4
Wellp, it's all over. I finished and validated on November 27. Funny enough, I didn't write shit on the 25th, which was the day before Thanksgiving. I'm not 100% sure why. I mean, I had a lot of things going on due to the holiday, sure. But I was so damn close. Then, Thanksgiving, after the whole holiday business, I sat down and pounded it out I was ready to quit a bit after midnight, then I just powered through and ended up finishing a little after midnight.
Well, this NaNo hasn't been quite as memorable as previous years. Last year the heater blew and I felt like I was living a bit like a caveman, huddled up to a space heater for warmth. In previous years I've had wild, exorbitant ups and devastating downs. Perhaps this year was just fairly even and didn't blow my mind. I'm glad as always that I did it. At a minimum I made some grand progress on a contracted novel.
So how about you? Did you make it? Fail miserably? Fail triumphantly? How was your experience overall? Let me know in the comments below.
