Today is my final Word Count Wednesday! I can't believe NaNo is over, and now we can resume our normal lives of writing and rewriting manuscripts, crying over said manuscripts, and tearing our hair out with worry (oh wait, didn't we just do that for a whole month? Ah well...the life of a writer...)
Congratulations to everyone for participating in NaNo whether you "won" or not! You've won in my eyes just for attempting it, and if you didn't do it that's still great too- because it really shouldn't be the be-all, end-all of writing. You can still write that novel, and it doesn't have to be in one month either. To me, NaNo is just a fun exercise to get those creative juices flowing, and not something to get too worked up over.
So, what's your final word count? Did you "win" or did you accomplish what you set out to do? Even if I didn't "win" and get 50k words, I still finished my WIP, which I am very proud of. Husbies rewarded me today with a new desk chair and keyboard to hook up to my laptop. So now I can start on edits! yay....
I also wanted to say Happy Hanukkah! Today the Festival of Lights starts at sundown, and we celebrated by getting a cute little Menorah and will give Little Monster some Twinkle Toes shoes she has wanted for a while.
While we don't follow one religion over the other, we like to celebrate some of the major winter holidays: Christmas, Hanukkah and the Solstice. We usually have a gift for Little Monster on the start of each holiday, and also read about it that night.
Hope you have a wonderful Hanukkah if you celebrate it, and I also hope you are satisfied with your accomplishments either on NaNo, your current WIP or anything in your life right now! Let me know your final word count, or even if you are just proud of something in your life- I want to be proud with you!
