Post Nano and Into December

I won Nano (National Novel Writing Month), crossing the 50k finish line on the 29th of the month (yay!). I  had been behind most of the month using my Thanksgiving break to catch up. I wrote over 20k for said break. Well having Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday off from work helped.

That being said I decided at the start of this month to finish the draft by year end. As of yet I have not touched the actual draft. My plan was to finish a note card outline then jump into the writing. Last week I wrapped up most of the rest of the story on my note cards so I think I am just going to start writing tomorrow.

So how did Nano go for those who participated ? Or writing in general?

I didn't participate this year, and as for writing in general-- it's not gone well the past several months. Glad for a new year with new resolutions to do better. Congrats on winning Nano, that is totally awesome!

Karen - Thank you :) I had a blast with Nano this year even with being behind most of the month.
Sorry to hear your writing isn't going well. I'm with you on the new year, aside from Nano I haven't been to productive writing wise. Good luck in the new year.

Congratulations on completing your 50k!

I'm not being very productive at present. The darkness and cold have had a paralysing effect on me. New year, new start, hopefully.

I just watched from the sidelines, but it was fun. Congrats on finishing and have a Merry Christmas! :)
