Here we are, the penultimate day of November, and those of you who have been doing NaNo are either sitting pretty, or tearing your hair out, or, if you are like me, looking somewhat bemused and wondering, “What the hell happened this month?”
By all metrics, this has been my worst NaNo ever. I haven’t made even 25 percent of the word count, and most strangely, I’m not sitting here with a short novella – a completely finished story.
But, I still feel optimistic. I’ve got a great story, I’ve plotted out two-thirds of it, my world-building is some of my strongest yet, and everything just feels right. So, I feel that makes me a NaNo winner. I’m really happy with my results this month.
And how was your November? And what are your plans and strategies for December?
