The end is here. NaNoWriMo ended yesterday. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month: 30 days where thousands of people all across the world come together with one mission in mind: Write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. As you read these words, the final days of NaNo are fading into the ether and people are left wondering after a month of heart palpitating, sweating palm inducing, insomnia-loving writing excitement- What now?
We’re going to be talking about that at the #writestuff TweetChat: Where writers talk about writing. It’s on Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 9 pm Eastern. Each week we come in at the same time, same day and discuss a different topic. My Twitter is http://twitter.com/penpaprpad (I know, surprise, surprise). If you have any questions, I will try to help you to the best of my ability.
What was I going on about? Oh yes, insomniac writing sprints. Or at least that’s what brought it home for me. I wrote to the point of fingers falling off some days, because I was so inspired by my book. Other days I hated the very words I was writing and was determined to become a librarian. Sometimes it’s that way with a creative work, but even as I was stressing out, my eyes glazed with that crazed creative glee–I loved it.
I love shaping a story, crafting out a world. Creating something with my mind and some unknown force–because I’m not sold that all the words come from me. Especially late at night when I introduce a dwarf into the story so I could kick out those last 86 words. *ahem* I don’t think he’ll be making it to the final draft.
Here’s the vlog I created for my last day of NaNoWriMo where my goal was to write 10 thousand words and I was filled with adrenaline, coffee and crazy.
And don’t forget this giveaway ends on Friday. Four books, Three authors and shouldn’t that winner be you? Just a little thank you that I wanted to share with you guys. And please, share the link with a friend.
