This year was the third attempt I’ve made at the National Novel Writing month, and my third failure. I am neither heartbroken nor discouraged. I did write over 50,000 words in the last month, it was actually closer to 75,000 words. It just wasn’t’ all towards the novel. For that I did about 10k words.
It was not lack of ideas, I had enough to at least double what I put into it before I would sputter out. It was two things, the lack of time and the lack of effort. I whole heartedly take the blame for not finishing. I also didn’t finish the series about my mother, though there was another reason for that (coming in one last mother post).
Thought I would gie everyone an update since the last month was a slow one for me and the blog.
