NaNoWriMo 2016 – It’s done

Today at 17:30 I reached 50,162 words and I have an ending to my story.

This is my first win at Nano in the 3 years I have participated. I have done it with one day spare and I am pretty chuffed about that.

The experience wasn’t as difficult as before and I think it’s because I did a little bit of planning. I am not particularly happy with the story and most of it will probably go to the shredder or that special folder where failed attempts go die (as you never ever shred anything…you never know when it might come in handy). However, I am happy that for the first time since I have taken up writing again I have a story with a beginning, a middle and an end!

So what now?

Well first, I am going to play some Assassin’s Creed: Unity – there is nothing like mashing up buttons to kill villains to get rid of tension…

Then, I am going to start reading a new book. I haven’t read in ages as I didn’t want to distract myself from the story for Nano.

Finally, I am going to take a writing break until Xmas and then see if I fancy editing this one or starting a new…

For this year though, Nano is done. Weeeheeee!

Congrats to all of the other winners and if you haven’t finished yet…keep going…one more day and you are done. I know you can. If I can, anybody can.
