What exactly am I smelling, you ask? VICTORY! ACCOMPLISHMENT!
Go ahead. Take a deep breath of it. It’s like that first scent of coffee when you open a new container. The clean smell of fresh laundry. That silent calm after a heavy snow when the air is pure. Yeah, that’s it….
Today is November 30th. The final day of NaNoWriMo. Yes, I completed the 50,000 word goal this year! It feels good to put that much effort into something. I haven’t finished all of my short stories, but I am a lot further along than I was on November 1st.
The point of NaNo is to get in the habit of writing everyday, every opportunity. You have to develop your writing muscles and exercise them regularly. I may still not be writing every day, but the habit is growing. I am looking forward to the challenge next year.
Now the question is what to work on next. I do have stories to finish, plus all the projects I put on hold so I could focus on writing. Of course, it might help if I managed to make it out of my pj’s and actually get dressed today….
