So we already know I didn't win and why, but I was thinking about what I could do better next time. What was my final word count, you ask. Do I still get a drum roll if I didn't win? A whopping 30,070. This is the second time I have made it just over the 30k mark.
My NaNo experience has been rough, stressful and enriching. I have learned many things. Though I would say that my favorite part of NaNo is the awesome bunch of people in The Lake Writers group. I have made some life long friendships. Also, our local Municipal Liaison is particularly amazing. She seems to never get tired of our asking rudimentary questions and by us I mean mostly me.
I think on of my biggest problems was getting behind and getting discouraged. I was able to use Write or Die successfully. Many 20 min sprints took me from 23k to 30k in 2 days, but they were the last 2 and I was out of time. So what tips do you have for getting back on track if you fall behind?
