I didn’t finish my Nano, and I was so very disappointed.
I’m not one for excuses when it comes to writing, so this is surely not an excuse post.
Some excuses I could have utilized:
I had to feed my army of dragons!
I’m reading right now!
I just posted something, I’m tired!
It’s Thanksgiving, thank goodness, I’m done for this week.
No, none of those were the real problems, I actually got about 1/5 through the novel. But I got 1/5 through my novel about 7 times.
That’s right, I drafted before I was even FINISHED.
I fretted over every little detail, and before I even knew it, November came to a close. I got sucked up into the holiday magic, which is ultimately a good thing, but not for my novel.
So basically, I failed Nano. I had stickers to reward me,
because who doesn’t like STICKERS as a reward, and I didn’t even get a sticker. You know what else probably wasn’t a good plan?
Writing it down and then going to type it after it was done.
Because I didn’t own my own typing device, I just lived on my family’s. So now that I have my own Chromebook, I can type it, humanly type it.
So, yes, many things went wrong with my Nano Novel. But I think, NANO 2017 will be my year. Hopefully.
The world wants to hear what you have to say, and conversating is lovely. Comment whenever!
Did you finish NANO? Do you have any tips? Did you utterly fail like I did?
