A quick round up on the second half of National Novel Writing Month
Hello again! It’s me, Danielle Paige, and I can only apologise for how long it’s been since my last blog post. I think I got a little too overwhelmed with pumping out the remaining words of my novel. Yes, it’s official! I am now a NaNoWriMo winner! I’ve already seen plenty of mumbles from all of the other proud winners, so let me take this moment to congratulate you all.
Anyway, week three (although I failed to make a post about it) was the perfect time to revive my novel from the boring middle that I created in week two. I found myself slowly revealing secrets that I hadn’t even realised were there. Parts of my plot just seemed to come together. Honestly, it was so fulfilling to add the finishing touches to my main character before the ending began.
Week four was even better. The rush of the main event came and went as I raced towards the 50,000 word mark, and I finally made it on the evening of 29th November. I can proudly claim that I am the rather over-excited author of the most grammatically incorrect novel currently in existence! Therefore, to all other winners out there, I can sympathise with the amount of editing that you’re currently putting off.
Once again, to anyone who has completed their novel, congratulations! Now begins the relaxation period. Treat yourself to a well-deserved break and as much food as you can manage. You’ve earned it! Even if you haven’t made it, you should be proud of yourself for even trying in the first place, and I wish you better luck next year. Don’t give up on your novel. You may not be able to write it all in a month, but maybe in two months, or three. Keep going! It’ll all come together in the end.
That’s all from me for now. Be sure to promote your novel in the Movellas National Novel Writing Month club, as we’d all love to hear of your progress. Also, feel free to give me any links to your novels. As a Movellas Ambassador, I’d be all too happy to review your work. Until next year, happy writing!
