Well dear reader, it’s over… NANOWRIMO 2017 is finished. I for one am pleased and terrified by my success. I put in a solid 75,000 words toward Jamie’s Sacrifice, which really is going to be a trilogy it seems… I have written in excess of 40,000 words from the point of view of a 14/15 year old girl (she had a birthday in the process) as well as a significant amount of storytelling from the male lead’s point of view.
Did this have an effect outside the book? You mean like two Sundays ago when we were having nice weather for November and I thought it was March…? (That’s the time frame for the book) Of course these things have an effect dear reader, sometimes it’s even a good one!
Now that we’re on the other side of NANOWRIMO it’s time to look ahead, both to editing the thing’s we’ve written (for those who do the whole writing thing…) and to a new year (for everyone). We really do have a new year just a head and we have the opportunity to shape it into something amazing, and greater than anything or any year we’ve had before.
One of the biggest things that NANOWRIMO has confirmed once again to me dear reader is that we can do hard things if we put our minds, wills, and efforts into the.
There are opportunities ahead of us if we will just seek them, prepare for them, and take them when they come.
And don’t forget dear reader, even when we fail we can learn to do better on our next go ‘round.
That’s it for this one dear reader. Next time, back to our regular schedule (for about a week and then the holidays happen…)
