NaNoWriMo has been over and done with for three days now, and I’ve started to look forward to what’s going to happen with my novel, and my writing in general. I would absolutely love to finish my novel by the end of the year. I am hoping that it’ll be ~70k words, easily the longest… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2017 | now what?
For a few moments, I didn’t think I was going to make it; but make it I did. Yes, I ‘won’ NaNoWriMo 2017 and wrote over 50,000 words in one month! I am completely and utterly exhausted – I wrote over 10k words in the last two days – but I am so happy and… Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2017 | I did it
