NaNoWriMo 2018, Mission: Completed
It gives me great pleasure to announce that I've completed NaNoWriMo 2018 AHEAD of schedule!
Yes, I finished those 50,000 words two days before the deadline!
This means I've done and finished NaNoWriMo two years in a row AND each time I've upped the game and learnt things.
November started out with a cold for me and there were several days I couldn't write. But there were several others when I wrote 2,000, 3,000 and even 5,000 words!
Writing is like running a marathon. Your mind feels like it's been whipped around, after trying to beat a car on a race track. But when you write, even 500 words, you feel like you've accomplished something.
When you finish NaNoWriMo, you feel like you've accomplished A LOT.
There were many months in 2018 when I couldn't write. But when November started, I knew that there were sacrificed to be made and I made at least 25 nights of the 30-day month count.
Sleep is one of the things you have to sacrifice often during NaNoWriMo. But trust me, it's worth it!
Not only did I pass 51,000 words, my story isn't complete. I have about three or four chapters to go (may be more depending on the characters' actions) that I will continue working on in December.
Here's my NaNoWriMo Success Certificate!
