NaNoWriMo 2017: We Have a Winner!!

πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ Picture from NaNoWriMo

After one entire month of sometimes enthusiastic writing, sometimes forced writing, occasional crying over spilt tea, frequent jumping and crashing from coffee, some cancelled appointments, occassional playing truant (and video games), quite a bit of binge sleeping…


Those who aren’t too familiar with NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month and happens every November, where anyone and everyone who participates writes 50,000 words of a novel in a month! That means one has to write 1,667 words a day, and based on my average speed of 600 – 1,000 words an hour, that means I’d have to write 2 – 3 hours a day!

But if you look at my word count graph below, well, you can see I had a really slow start and a big bang finish. πŸ˜†

My stats for NaNoWriMo 2017. πŸ˜†

So, while we’re here, here are some blogging mini-announcements:

  • 3rd December Sunday post delayed: I normally have a post scheduled for Sundays, but this time I have none for 3rd December because of NaNoWriMo, plus I’ll be out of town the next couple of days for a mini-vacation! Hey, I deserve that for finishing NaNoWriMo. πŸ˜†
  • December collaboration intro post delayed: Yes, Collaboration with a Purpose is still on! I normally post the collaboration intro post every 1st of the month, but seeing how it’s 1st tomorrow, it’s very unlikely I’m able to get it up by then. It’s likely going to be posted on the 4th, but no promises. πŸ˜›
  • Long backlog blog reading list: For those of you I follow, you might find I haven’t turned up in a while… I was so running out of time that a lot of things went into a backlog to-be-done-in-December list, including playing games! I hope to catch up in the next week or two. Or three. πŸ˜…

And now, please excuse me while I go dance around the room! πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»

A Short Self-Compassionate Letter

Dear Self,

Congratulations! I’m really happy for you and am at awe with your dedication to win this NaNoWriMo despite the slow start and frequent demotivation; you can do more than you think. ❀️
