I did it.
I hit 50K and I won NaNoWriMo again. It wasn’t a pretty win, and not one I’m proud of, but it was a win.
And for the first time ever I’m glad it’s over.
November was a rough month all around and I’m beyond exhausted on all levels: physically, mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually.
I don’t think I’m going to set any goals for December. I need a break.
I’ll still be doing some work (I need to type up my handwritten notes for one thing) but I’m not giving myself a minimum word count or anything like that. I’m gonna kick back and relax and do a little of this and a little of that.
And tackle some stuff around the house that has been let slide.
I’ll also be working on setting up my goals for next year.
Then in January I’ll tackle stuff full on again.
Of course, that’s what I say now. But while I was making lunch a while ago I was thinking about diving into the first round of edits of Book 6 of The Academy of the Accord series, and getting the changes of the first round of Book 5 entered into the computer, and finishing this round of revisions to Onyx Sun and…
Yeah. So much for taking a break. Apparently my idea of taking a break from writing is to edit.
