So, that didn't work out.
I did not reach 50,000 words and “win” NaNoWriMo. I am trying to convince myself that this is okay; it’s just a silly thing and it’s no big deal.
But it sucks.
This November was one shitty month. The election messed up my flow and I never quite recovered (hint: I'm not a fan of the winner). I doubt that I am the only writer or artist who found it difficult to focus on an imaginary world this month, though, so maybe that excuse isn't worth all that much.
The important thing is to finish the book and make it as good as possible. And I will do that. In fact, it's possible that I may finish it faster now, as I am not pressured in the same way. Who knows? Not me! All I know is that I will complete it and I think it's gonna be pretty dang cool when it's all fixed up.
'Can’t win ’em all,' is what a baseball coach said to a team of weeping infants.
My congrats to all others who took part!
