As I mentioned earlier I decided to embark on doing NaNoWriMo for 2018. This is where you attempt to write 50K words in the month of November. Thankfully on the 19th of November I crossed that barrier at 50.065. I continued to work on this manuscript for November but not at the pace well the manic pace I was doing prior to getting the words needed.
I was reminded over the 19 days why I don’t do NaNo as regular as I use to. My first try was in 2011 and I won and continued the next two-year winning those as well. But the toil to accomplish this is hard especially if one has a job, family, one is ill or a host of other things . So I always try to get it done early. My best time was when I won NaNo in 15 days but that was harsh. But it is a good feeling being 4-0 as my record for this.
It is a fun thing to do don’t get me wrong. The people I meet and hang out is inspiring and motivating. Meeting new people and new writers to hang out with in the future is a definite win.
Will I do NaNo next year I am not sure. At the moment I think not. But considering how I decided I was doing NaNo 2018 three days before it started could happen again.
