The last week… NaNoWriMo 2018 will end this Friday!
Luckily I have more time to write this week and I got off to a good start.
Although I really enjoy NaNo every time and it definitely gives my manuscript a boost, I always seem to forget how tired you can get. Of course I write a lot in daily life, but 50.000 words just are a lot in thirty days. Especially when it’s a month where you already have a lot of appointments.
Of course, it’s partly my own fault, although some things you can’t escape. Like I said; I do not intend to set aside everything to be able to write. Not even if I have a deadline.
Besides writing, I also spent an afternoon at the Coornhert Gymnasium in Gouda. This school has the “Fantasy Experience” every year where writers are invited to give workshops and have a meet & greet with the students. Very nice of course!
In the same week, I was also present at the winter edition of Castlefest on Saturday, where I, together with my colleagues from Celtica Publishing, stood behind the stand to sell books, chat with readers and of course sign my books. Also awesome!
Furthermore I like to spend time with my family and friends and it doesn’t matter if it’s November or any other month. Although that is all at the expense of writing time, I certainly wouldn’t want to miss it. ❤
Now I have two days left … two days to successfully complete NaNoWriMo 2018. Will I succeed in making another final sprint? I will definitely try it!
Moreover, I have a great holiday in prospect and something to work towards is always a good motivation.
For everyone who wants to make a final sprint as well: Come on! You can do it!
Lots of love, Patty
