Losing NaNoWriMo

Good morning readers!

Oliver Gray, my partner in writing crime (though we try hard not to break the Strunk & White Laws), gave me the opportunity to write a guest piece for his blog. As I promised a few posts back, I discuss what I learned from losing NaNoWriMo.

If you were a fellow loser, I hope you find some comfort and/or ideas in it. Even if you won, you may still be able to extract some thought juice from the write-up.

So without further ado, hop in the transporter and read it!

  1. I’m on my way over . . .

  2. I’ll hop over and take a look, but first I’ve got to take issue with “losing” NaNo. That event is what you make it, and if you find that cranking out a massive number of words in a short period of time does not work for you, then you’ve discovered your process and are a winner at your own game. Don’t ever let anyone or any event make you feel as if you’re not up to par. As long as you’re taking risks and trying to find your process, you’re on it and winning.

    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Cyd. I hope after reading it, my self-directed jab at being a “loser” made more sense! I agree with you 100%. I’m glad I attempted NaNoWriMo and it was just another step in discovering how I can be successful at this writing gig. I hope everyone else that didn’t make the 50,000 words came away with a positive attitude and feeling just a little bit wiser.
