Through I’m disappointed that I won’t be able to complete the challenge, when I look back on what I have accomplished I’m pretty excited.
I managed to complete the hardest edits of my writing career, Wandering off the Path, the first in my new bound by fairytale series. I released Foolish Desire, the fourth book in my naughty holiday list series, and promoted it to a successful first month (even landing on the best sellers list for a little while).
Writing wise I wrote over 20k on Dirty Work, the next and final installment in the naughty holiday list series, and another 3k on Regan and the three bears (working title), a future installment in my bound by fairytales series.
All in all it’s not a bad month’s worth of work. And I do have Nanowrimo to thank for it. If it weren’t for Nano I certainly wouldn’t have written as much as I did. Between the edits, promotion for Foolish Desire, and some evil day job issues, I probably wouldn’t have written much. Due to pushing myself towards that Nanowrimo goal, I’m now about two thirds of the way through
Dirty work, and I’m that much closer to having another release heading towards the door.
So even though I didn’t make my Nanowrimo goal, I’m still going to consider it a successful month. I’m hoping to put in a few more thousand words before the end of the month, the best I can with this nasty bug. Thankful for another year of Nanowrimo.
