NaNoWriMo Update, the First and the Last

Well, I failed NaNoWriMo this year. I tried but I just couldn’t get past the first 100 words even.

I hate quitting and giving up, but I think that I need to. I just don’t think I am reading mentally to write this book. I had no clue where to start, no clue where to end, and no idea what would go in the middle. This book is really important to me and when I write it I want to do it the right way and on it’s time not mine.

I think one of the biggest reasons I failed is because I’ve been spending a lot of time working on this blog, which has a higher priority than NaNo at this point.

On a happier note, I finally decided that it’s time to start editing my Camp NaNo book from April. I printed it all out and put it in this cute hot pink notebook. Now I’m working on the first read through and trying not to punch myself in the face while doing so. I don’t think I’ve ever written anything this terrible. I’m trying to stay positive and remind myself that it kind of has good bones which means I can try to fix it.


Did anyone else quit NaNo? If not congrats! How far along are you?

Also, happy Thanksgiving!
