NaNo Check-In

Tell me how I'm supposed to get any writing done?

I'm 33,000 words into my NaNoWriMo novel, and because I started it eight days early, I'm supposed to finish it by tomorrow.

It's okay that I'm not going to make it. My definition of a successful NaNo has changed over the years. I now consider the month a success if I manage to NOT change plots 17 times, and if I end up with something I'm actually going to use. This unfinished 33,000-word novel? I am smitten! This, I'll use. Most of it, anyway -- I might cut the part where I went off on an accidental rant about corn.

So how is November treating you?

I'm in the same boat, behind, but somehow happy about being behind. I needed NaNo to tell me it was okay to start a new project, so it has been a big success. I'll be jumping back into revisions on my other novels...sooner than later. But I'm happy about NaNo!!
