Alrighty then, so I’ve reached the end of My NaNoWriMo Journey-Day 30. And what a journey it has been, writing a story of approximately 69,000 words in a month. Whew! I’ve done a draft in 3-months before, so this was a new experience even though I did prepare for this event as noted on day 1 – though rushed, but believe me I felt the heat and am relieved to get some respite.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this journey, I made an impromptu decision to take part in this writing marathon. My intention was not to go for a win, but use it to get started on my second novel, that is the sequel to Whisper of Lies, the prequel. I’m really; really glad I made that decision. I still have a lot of writing and research to do, as the book will be in the range of 80,000 to 90,000 words.
All-in-all, I enjoyed the experience and gained great self-satisfaction from accomplishing the writing task, as well as interacting with other participants.
