So as my current NaNo friends may have noticed, my word count has stayed at 13k for a while. That's because around five days or so ago I came to a sad conclusion - that I was not going to finish Nano.
I'm currently in the process of applying for graduate school, and I'm trying to get everything done by Dec 1. Since I am applying to join a MFA program, this means I am polishing and repolishing a certain amount of my writing, which is consuming a lot of my time (and mind). I have decided that my application is more important to me than Nano, so I have more or less withdrawn myself from Nano. Honestly, I probably should have figured this out before, and not have even committed myself in the first place to Nano, but I thought I could do both.
But my shortened Nano experience was positive, and so you can expect to see me fighting the good fight (or should I say writing the good write?) next year.
Thanks for the cheerleading! and kick butt danielle, kc, jamie, mercedes, and barry!
