NaNoWriMo Is Almost Over

It’s November 30th and for lots of contenders, it’s crunch time to get in as many words as possible today. My own journey into the adventure for 2016 is much different. I encountered lots of setbacks and life, in general, taking up my time. Plus, I already spend all day writing for other publications. But I also went into this knowing that there was no way I was going to finish my anthology in one month. It’s really hard to write poems, prayers, and rituals for one deity on a daily basis AND meet a specific word count. I cannot get past the need for meat and not filler words just to meet a word count. It’s simply not in my nature, and that is okay. I take the words seriously so that I am conveying Hela to the best of my own personal ability. So NaNoWriMo really became just a jumping point into the foray of writing for the purpose of creating a book that I want to see on store shelves one day. This is not an endeavor just to say I did it or to have in my dropbox. No, this is something I really want to share with others. So today I will work on an editorial piece about Hela and include it on my word count. And tomorrow? I will write more. I may only write a few hundred words a day, but I will keep doing it 4 days out of the week. Because realistically, that’s what I can do to achieve my goals.

To the rest of the contenders, I wish you the best. I hope you have met the goals you set for yourself. And regardless if you “succeeded” at the 50,000 word goal for the month, I hope you enjoyed it.
