Now that we're all out from under the pressure of National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo), it's time to take a look at the creations we've made. In truth, I was not a winner this year but I am looking forward to giving it another shot next year. The month wasn't all a wash though as Nanowrimo DID spur me on to write the first two chapters of my second novel, inspire me to move forward with finishing the manuscript of my first and give me the kick-in-the-pants I needed to apply for featured writing spots with Yahoo! and Examiner.com.
Add to the mix a bout of flu, a head/chest cold, a somber death in the family and a busy Thanksgiving and it's easy to say that November was crammed as full as it possibly could have been. Although life certainly didn't take a break through this Nanowrimo, it did show me that I can keep plunking along on my writing projects even when things are crazy. My new goal? To have novel #2 written and in editing by the time the next Nanowrimo comes along. I have a feeling novel #3 will help me to win next year!
