With NaNoWriMo winding down, some of you are coming out as winners and others did the best thing they could; they started. Sometimes it is about intermediate goals, and sometimes it is about long term goals. For those of you who haven’t finished your book, I encourage you to not lose momentum. Keep writing 1,000 words a day or more into December and beyond. Push yourself to the end of your novel, because finishing will leave you feeling elated.
On a personal note I am thrilled I just narrowly finished my own goal of 30,000 words. Publishing my second novel in the first week of December pulled me away from this years NaNoWriMo, so I set a smaller more obtainable goal. Just 72 words over my goal as I wrap up the end of my day. I feel excited that I’ve finished about 1/3 of my new book. I hope many of you have similar stories of personal success.
Exiting this month of writing madness, it is good to reflect on all the wonderful people I met this year. Last year I stuck to myself and just wrote. This time I reached out to other writers and discovered some amazing talent and personalities. Many of them will help me in my quest to become a better writer. In return I hope to help them. If you didn’t meet anyone during your NaNo time I will encourage you to do so next year. Talking with others has opened my eyes, and I can start to see where I can make my stories better.
Thankfully I met my goals, and I was able to publish Zendar: A Tale of Blood and Sand. Check out my published links if you’d like a desert fantasy, with undertones of adult romance. Or click the link: Paperback or Kindle. I’ve dedicated it primarily to everyone who is looking for love. Because everyone deserves a little love in their life.
