Well, I set a goal and I made it!
I decided that I would try to write a novel in a month, and while I have not yet completed the story (I have about 5 more chapters), I did complete the goal of writing 50,000 in the month of November!
Now my goal is to take it easy, catch up on school work, and hopefully finish the book by the end of the calendar year. I would like to spend the first quarter of 2011 revising it and then take advantage of one of the “prizes” and submitting it for free binding at Create Space.
This has been a marvelous experience and I hope to write a more detailed post of all the lessons I have learned while participating in NaNoWriMo, not the least of which is that I can indeed write a novel. In the meantime, I must now grade papers…..
