Well, it’s finally over. The 20th year of NaNoWriMo is done and passed, and while I did not technically achieve victory, I am still quite happy with my results.
NaNoWriMo had the intended effect on me, as I’m sure it has on thousands of other writers across the globe. It’s proved to all of us that we have what it takes to be able to write an entire novel in a very short period of time. Whether that period of time is, in fact, a month, or if it is two, as it will be for my current work-in-progress, makes no difference.
We can all be writers.
