NaNoWriMo Recap!

Hello There!

NaNoWriMo has officially ended and I am feeling torn. I feel accomplished for participating but at the same time I am a little upset I did not meet my word count! I had issues with my anxiety and it kept me away from the computer for a while but now I am back and more determined than ever to get some writing done! Another thing that has hindered my progress is a dream I had a few nights ago. This dream involved masks, pirates, magic, and a dance with a dangerous foe that could have easily been compared to a thrilling chess match. Ever since I had this dream I have been enthralled by it! I want to know more about these mysterious characters and their world. Every time I try to go write my main project I get swept away by the thought of the mysterious pirate that had a knack for fire magic and I am taking this a sign that I should put some work into fleshing them out before I make any major decisions. I have fallen in love with the idea of pirates before but due to certain complications that did not work out and I just recently moved on from having to give up that kickass idea only to have my heart stolen again by the idea of writing the pirates from my dream.  We shall see how this works out!

I wish you luck on your writing journey!

One thought on “NaNoWriMo Recap!

  1. I couldn’t complete NaNoWriMo this year either, I stopped at approximately 37k last week because in my opinion it was my worst ever work! It was disheartening to see the stuff I was writing, it was unemotional, I was obsessed with the word count and the quality of my work suffered tremendously. I doubt I will ever take that challenge again! But look on the positive side, at least you wrote what you did and got as far as you did. 🙂 That’s my solace in any case, despite this work being the toughest revision ever too!
