Twelve Days of Christmas Day 6: NaNoWriMo 2011 Win

Posted December 30, 2011 in Creative Writing, Life Updates / 1 Comment

To celebrate Christmas this year I have decided to do a post on each of the twelve days of Christmas (25th Dec-5th Jan) to celebrate all of the gifts (both physical and metaphorical) that I have recieved this year and take stock of what I have achieved during 2011.

On the six day of Christmas 2011 gave to me…a NaNoWriMo win.

Yep, one of the highlights of 2011 was taking part in NaNoWriMo again. I managed to write my 50, 000 words over about 16 days, and although the first draft of Roar of the Blood still isn’t finished, there’s now a considerable chunk of it done. I’m more positive about this novel than any other attempt I’ve made before, and I’m hoping that in 2012 I will be able to complete it and begin editing. NaNoWriMo was such a lot of fun as always. I really enjoyed connecting with people on the blogs, forums and on twitter. Everyone is so helpful and inspirational, and thanks to NaNoWriMo I’ve made a pretty good start. I’ll definately be taking part next year (as long as the world doesn’t end of course).

  1. It seems for some reason that all your posts since like November haven't been showing up in my Dashboard until today. I'm scurrying to catch up! Wonderful about your NaNo win. ^^
