NaNoWriMo Aftermath

This November did not go as planned in my effort to complete the daunting 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo. I had every intention to write the needed 1667 words everyday, but things do not always go according to plans. I had just got into Bullet Journaling and was trying to be more productive, but this inadvertently made me less productive, at least in the writing department. I made a list of goals I wanted to accomplish in November, one of them being writing my novel, reading at least one book, studying Korean, writing in my journal, and keeping my apartment clean. Sadly, writing took a bit of a back seat in my list of things to accomplish.

I’m not going to let it get me down, though.

I was still able to write a little over half of the required words and got some great scenes put down on paper. Like most writers know, it’s important to get it written down before it blows away like a leaf in the wind. I’m still writing as well, trying to keep some of last months motivation up. It helps to join a group of writers that meets every Saturday at a local cafe. They give me a nice relaxing environment to write in and also provide the occasional light bulb moment for a specific scene or just my story in general.

I’m excited to see where this story goes.
