Participating in National Novel Writing Month was great. I had the excuse I needed, one that everyone honored, to be able to spend a couple of hours a day just writing. I managed to chunk out the rough draft of a 50k word novel. Actually, I managed to get the 50, 000 words written which was the goal but the novel didn't get completed but that's okay. I'll just complete it this month...except this is the end of the first week after NaNoWriMo and I've added only 1,400 words more to the novel and before I was doing 2500 words 5 days per week. That's sad. I wonder if I can get myself to wake up early just to be able to write. I did it for the month of November. Surely, I can do it again.
