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).
