The November race to the finish!
Congratulations to all of you who ran and finished the NaNoWriMo race.
This is something I’ve always wanted to do, but well, shit happens as does the holidays.
However, I so admire all of those who not only attempted, but finished over 50,000 words in just 30 days.
Wow! Way to go everyone!
Some think it’s an amazing exercise in productivity. Others like LAURA MILLER over at Salon.com thinks it’s a waste of time and energy. She contends that the writer will be disappointed in the quality of what is produced.
Ellen Scott for Metro.co.uk wrote 27 things every NaNoWriMo writer needs to know.
Hmm, maybe next year I’ll… Nope, probably won’t happen.
So have there been NaNoWriMo successes? You bet!
Ellen Scott for Metro.co.uk also lists 7 successful NaNoWriMo projects that went on to become NYT Best Sellers.
And some of my favorite books too! Like Wool, Cinder, and Water for Elephants.
Hmm, maybe I’ll think about next year.
So what about you? Did you participate in NaNoWriMo this year? How did it go? Are you happy with what you produced?
Inquiring minds want to know.
