Yup - I survived NaNo again! Yay :)
I ended up with over 60k words for the month. I hadn't expected to be successful this year because my November was nuts, but it somehow all worked out. I think, for me, the joy of NaNo is that there are so many other nuts out there. It's also a competition, so that helps! I also get REALLY excited when I'm writing the first draft of a story, so I tend to do them fairly quickly.
I'm really enjoying the story and I'm nearing the end now. In fact I hope to wrap up the draft and put it to the side for a bit, let it marinate for a few weeks or more. In the meantime, I'm going to go over the draft I wrote for Camp NaNo in August. It's been a great year for first drafts for me!
I'm over at From The Write Angle today talking about some NaNo NoNos. I hope you'll pop over and add your thoughts to the discussion!
