Stop writing in 3, 2, 1

So, I didn’t achieve 50k words this month and have therefore not won nanowrimo.  I’m not too sad about it, because I really think that I can do something good with the writing that I did do and I’ve not become so sick of my story that I hide it in a drawer tomorrow and never look at it again.  Some of my incredibly dedicated friends have hit the magic number and good on them, for sure, but I think that I’ve decided that, for me, nano is more of an enabler than a competition.  I’ve enjoyed the challenge and the community, definitely, and it’s been thrilling to watch my word count creep up, yet it’s more about quality than quantity.  Well, hopefully.

Congratulations to all you nanoers out there!
