Saturday night, I won* National Novel Writing Month!
What a relief to be done. And by done, I mean: done with the first 50,000 words of my very messy first draft. I’ve still got the whole third act to write, plus a bazillion hours of revising ahead of me, but this whirlwind month of writing at least 1,667 words per day is over. Phew!
I wish I could tell you more about this project of mine, but for now, holding it close feels right. I will say that I love it. A lot. It’s the first WiP I’ve drafted since The Impossibility of Us that has me feeling inspired and excited and like maybe one day, this thing could actually be a book.
So, for now, congrats to those of who’ve already won NaNoWriMo! To those still climbing the 50,000 word mountain, you’ve got this! And to my friends who are revising or editing or brainstorming or drafting at your own pace, you are amazing and I’m totally cheering you on! ❤
*Won is a strange term. Anyone who writes any words during the month of November is a winner as far as I’m concerned.

Congratulations on your win! Though I was an overachiever yet again, I still feel really disappointed in myself for writing below what I did in previous years. 65,524 isn’t the best I’m capable of in a single month, but at least they’re words I didn’t have before, and added to what I wrote last November and December, I’m now about a third of the way done with this book.
