NaNoWriMo and Me

writing in a notebook

Here are some of the pros and cons of Nanowrimo (for me):


  1. Finished a book in 30 days

  2. Learned to write without thinking a lot beforehand

  3. Learned to write an impressively detailed outline


  1. This is not a very good first draft.

  2. In fact, it’s a terrible one.

Will I do Nanowrimo next year? Right now I say no way, but a lot can change in a year! It was a good exercise, it was fun to try, but part of me wishes I could’ve spent more time on this draft. I see a lot of editing in my future…
