So... two days left of National Novel Writing Month. Did I hit my 50k, you may be wondering?
Well, hopefully you used your deductive reasoning and figured out, after reading my post title, that I failed.
Yup, that's right. I am a NaNo failure, once again. But WAIT! I don't feel too bad about it. And the reason: I wrote half my book!
I'm sure after being super pumped to hit my half way point, I should be super pumped to keep going, but honestly, I've lost my steam. My back is sore, my fingers bleeding (not really), my brain has popped (this is probably true). And though I still have two days left of November to write, and only about 14k words left before hitting my NaNo goal, I'm just too
whiny tired to go on.
Not to mention, I've been having anxiety nightmares in which I'm in my character's shoes being hunted in a labyrinth underneath a crack house by Jack the Ripper and a minotaur.
But I did finish the first half my book, and I actually like it. No, wait - I actually LOVE it. And I can't wait to finish... as soon as I
stop whining get some rest after writing like a maniac all month.
Happy winning to all you NaNo winners this year! And for the ones who are right there with me... well, good for you for writing something!
