Today is the very last day of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). I wrote 67,831 words in 29 days, passing the 50,000 word mark (with 5,0005 words at time of validation) on November 22, 2018. I’m spending most of today continuing to write my story in the hopes that I can reach “The End” before midnight.
It’s been a turbulent November this year. I’m part of the Municipal Liaison team for my area (ML is a fancy term for an unpaid volunteer). There are three of us. The region is active enough that it needs three of us. Due to work demanding time, energy, and overtime, for one co-ML and the other ending up sick not once but twice during November, I was a solo act for possibly half the month. I know this was no fault of theirs, and I love them both dearly for doing as much as they did while overwhelmed with work/illness. It just meant more time being an ML and slightly less time for writing.
