With yesterday being the last day of November, NaNoWriMo came to an end. If you caught my post at the beginning of the month, I wrote about taking on the challenge for the first time. To recap, NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month, is a challenge to write/start writing a novel during November with a goal of 50,000 words by the end of the month. I doubted I would get to 50,000 – that’s a lot! But, I definitely thought I’d get more than I ended up with which was 11,689. The month was really tough for me to find time to write for various reasons such as the end of the marking period at school, which meant I was grading a lot of things I had fallen behind on before grades were due. I also just had a lot of other work, blog, and reading things going on so it was hard to find time each day and on many days when I did find a little bit of time before bed, I’d end up falling asleep while writing! Then, of course, Thanksgiving and all of that.
Anyway, my main goal for this challenge was to get started on my princess adventure comedy idea and I did that so that’s a success, right? I’m going to continue working on it and now that the challenge is over I won’t feel so much pressure to just get words on the page.
I took some photos and videos throughout the month so I could put a compilation video together of my NaNoWriMo writing. It will be up on Instagram today!
I also want to do some more research into self publishing as an option, because I really know very little about it. If anyone has self-published or knows a lot about it, please fill me in!
I’ll keep you updated on the progress of my book, but in the meantime I did finish and post the last chapters of my Wattpad story, I’m Still Here . It’s free to read! Enjoy!
