NaNo done

Well, it's official. After a couple of huge days -- I had to write 15,000 words in two days -- I'm a NaNoWriMo winner. I feel there has been a few things I've neglected in the last few weeks: emails, blogs, boards, but I've refound my focus. I'm sure I've written 50,000 words of crap, but I'll decide that in a little while when I come back to read over it. That's not for today, nor the next month, which is when I have to finish the rewrite of my novel. I've got about 50,000 words to go. And one month. Easy peasy. (Except I have to do an editing pass over it too, but that's the fun part.)

Anyway, tonight I'm determined to catch my blogs up a little, so this is necessarily quick. Tomorrow I'm hoping to blog about what I've discovered doing NaNoWriMo.

15,000 words in two days? That's amazing.

Way to go. Congratulations. And now that you have written it in your blog, you have to keep reminding yourself of two things:
1) Writing as a habit
2) Get more sleep! Before you fall into a screaming heap.

Thanks, everyone. You know what the best bit about it is: I feel like a writer again. Sometimes, when the writing's not going so well, I don't feel like a writer, even though I know that writers do sometimes struggle with words, even though the writing itself doesn't seem any poorer in quality from when it flows well, but 15,000 in two days -- yeah, I feel like a writer. And a writer who's keen, and really is there any better feeling in the world?
