Writer's Life: Did You Win NaNoWriMo?
November is National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. I've participated several times in the past but this year was the first in a long time. I really wanted to write a Christmas novel (I love, love, love the season, and while it's a painful time of year for me I always manage to find joy in the season).
Did I manage to win? Did I write that Christmas novel? Well, yes and no. I feel like I "won" in the sense that I made major progress on my story--even if I didn't finish it. I did write a Christmas novel in that the story does have a few scenes that take place over the Christmas holiday. But, it's not a "Christmas" book, exactly.
So, what about you? Did you NaNo? If so, did you win?
This month is super busy as many people are gearing up for Christmas, New Years, and other winter holidays. I made a short video about the busyness of the year and how I plan to finish my novel beyond NaNo.
