So... I didn't come close to finishing NaNoWriMo this year. Yes, I know I still have all of today to catch up, but it is not going to happen. I still have a good start on my novel and I really like it, it's just not getting done right now.
Last year, I finished NaNoWriMo with a sense of accomplishment. I could, indeed, write a freaking novel. I could find time to write more than short stories and I could hang in there over the long haul. I had hand written a novel in a month. It didn't end up where I wanted it to go, but it was down on paper.
This year, I walk away from novel writing month with only a big sigh, a half finished manuscript, and a sense that I have finally stretched myself as far as I can. Catching up on my writing would have only added to my insanity and everything would still be half done right now. I can't take on any other tasks for a while. However, I know I can still make some time for writing.
Did you finish NaNoWriMo this year? How do you deal with tasking yourself up to the snapping point?
