What I learned from #NaNoWriMo
And even though I didn’t get around to the full 50k, I got a lot done. Writing a novel takes a lot more effort than just writing words on a page. Here are a few examples of what else accomplished this month:
I researched backstories,
sketched several new characters,
did some plotting,
was crippled by writer’s block,
got over writer’s block,
filled in more of my outline,
realized what the story is *really* about,
recognized some key areas that will need further development,
and even did a little bit of revising.
So even though I didn’t pound out 50,000 words this month, I feel like I got a lot of work done for one short month and I’m excited to keep going!
