NaNoWriMo 2015: Retrospective

It’s December 1st, which means that NaNoWriMo is over. I’m imagining that a huge sigh of relief is being breathed by writers the world over. As a challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days, I failed this year’s NaNoWriMo. That’s ok, I’ve never actually “won” the challenge, and I’m not bothered any more by the loss this year than I have been any other year. Actually, this year felt better to me than previous years, even years when I’ve gotten quite close to winning.

More than other years, I feel like I learned something important this time around. I can sort of vaguely see a path forward that sort of vaguely looks like a path I might be able to follow. I have a sense of things I should do in the coming weeks, months, years. And I’m even a little excited?

The end of this month will have a New Year’s Resolution post which will list my general plans for the coming year. For now, suffice to say… November wasn’t a month in which nothing happened, just a month in which very few words were written.

  • Words Written on NaNoWriMo novel: 3,543
  • Novels Plotted: 2
