Hello citizens of DeviantART!
November is nearing its end, and... I'm finally done with NaNoWriMo!
I reached the 50k last Wednesday, but I still had about 3 chapters to go. Yesterday I finally wrote the last paragraph, ending at 61.296 words (my Nano meter isn't entirely accurate – it said I had 1.5k less than I really typed, so I had to compensate a bit but then I copied too many words and messed up by two hundred that I was too lazy to fix
). I feel kind of 'meh' about finishing, actually. I don't know why.
And now, because you're all dying to hear about my emotional and cognitive advancements this month:
But besides all that...
- So apparently, I can manage my time after all. Nanowrimo made me realize just how much time I wasted each day doing nothing substantial, just surfing around the internet. Joke's on them though, I have already fallen back into the habit of brainlessly internetting.
- It really ignited my love for writing again. Well, to be exact, my hate for writing but my love for having written. I can't wait to start working on my first book again.
- WHY CAN'T I DOWNLOAD A THESAURUS + DICTIONARY INTO MY BRAIN?!
This isn't the thing for me, I'm afraid... too little time. I like taking my time with scenes, thinking of the small details. I don't like racing through stories. As a result I ended up with some gaps in the middle of Stoneheart and minimal character development. Well, not like it would've been a much better first draft anyway.
I think I wasn't all that slow before I joined anyway. But it was fun. Right now I would not join in again next year, but who knows! Good luck to everyone who's still typing! YOU CAN DO IT!
Time to resume normal daily activities, including replying to messages and trying to somehow start demolishing the pile of deviations I've built over the month... help me
