No cash prizes, not even a t-shirt. I finished Nano and all I got was this stupid blog badge.
But at the same time, while this victory means basically nothing to anyone who doesn't know about Nano, it is a huge thing with a lot of people in the writing community and it is a huge, big deal to me personally. I set a goal and followed through with it which is a good habit and one I am trying to keep. I almost gave up, and said well 25K (which is where I was on Friday) is more than I had before, I am just going to quit and not worry about it. But I kept pushing.
As it turned out, I woke up today and wrote approximately 15,000 words. That's a lot to write in one day. If you ever do Nano, don't do that.
|This is not the way to do nanowrimo. See all the blue lines the same height? Days I didn't write at all-bad idea. Because today I had 15000 words to catch up in 36 hours.|
