Which if you follow this blog and don't follow us on Twitter, you might NOT actually know as I pretty much did absolutely nothing here during November. And I am very sorry about that. But during November, Rachel and I DID A THING.
This thing is called Nanowrimo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month and means you write 50,000 words in a month. If you want to know if you should consider doing it next year, I suggest asking me in a couple months when I have recovered enough to convince myself that doing Nano again will be SUPER FUN and not make me go insane at all.
But anyway, just before November 30th began at midnight, after staying up till like 2 am (If my parents are reading this, then NO I was not up until 2 am. *nods* *is a good daughter*) for the past two nights I HIT 50,000 WORDS! *dances* *throws confetti*. That means that I won! And I get to wear a super cool winner's t-shirt and stick THIS button in random places:
This was my second year doing Nanowrimo and my second year winning, but not technically finishing my draft. There is one major difference this year though. I think I am actually going to try to finish this draft. I love my characters, the story, and I really want to continue writing this one. Plus Rachel's younger sister has been threatening my life about finishing this story since I first explained my idea to them a couple of months ago.
If I can actually finish this draft, it will be the first one I've ever finished and that will be AWESOME.
Now, I need to pause and thank Erika from Rescue Reads and Aneeqah over at My Not So Real Life. During Nanowrimo they had an ongoing four way conversation with Rachel and I, doing word wars and giving us support. We started an awesome group of awesome, which Erika made a button for:
Now that Nanowrimo is over I can go back to doing things like reading, blogging, and maybe even a bit more writing. There will probably be some school thrown in there. But at least it means that I will be back to blogging on a somewhat regular basis. Rachel and I should both be around a lot more now and we will be able to write things like *cough* guest reviews *cough* that we were supposed to right but haven't gotten around to writing yet.
I'm looking forward to jumping back into the internet world. I'VE MISSED YOU INTERNET.
So how was your November? If you participated in Nanowrimo, how did you do?
