This is a delayed post due to crazy busy moments and the power going out multiple times during a blizzard last night, but I have some belated, yet extraordinary news.
I completed the NaNoWriMo challenge this year! HOORAY!
For those who don’t know about NaNoWriMo, it’s short for National Novel Writing Month. It’s a challenge where you have to write a 50,000 word novel over the course of November. That’s roughly the same length as the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in terms of word count. I’ve done this challenge since 2014 and I’ve competed in Camp NaNoWriMo which is their off-season contests. A good portion of my books have been NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo projects.
Last year was considered a failure for me though. I did Camp NaNoWriMo, but I failed the 50k goal for the real thing last year due to finishing Hollandus Landing and dealing with a heavy work schedule with multiple jobs. This year, not only did I beat the challenge, I beat it with over 59k words which is my longest NaNoWriMo project thus far.
I don’t know how many of you care about my literary endeavors, but this means a lot to me.
