3.12.13

success!

I did it. I won—barely. (YAYYYYY!) Congratulations to all of my other buddies who finished on time! And for those who didn't, you guys are awesome too! I mean, come on. How many people are crazy enough to do this?!? (Except the real writers with real deadlines. I've read that this is how quite a few of them write their novels.)
Just kidding about the whole "real" writer thing, though. WE ARE TOO. And we're all pretty awesome for even attempting this thing.

What I Learned:

1. It's okay if you don't make it. During the middle of the month, I was freaking out because I wasn't sure if I was going to win. But then during the last week-and-a-half, I calmed myself down and decided that was okay. And then I made it. (I'm not saying that thought has anything to do with it. I'm just making a point that stressing yourself out isn't worth it.)
2. It actually is possible to still hang out with friends, watch almost a whole season of Doctor Who, AND write 50,000 words in a month!
3. People really are important. When it comes to NaNoWriMo, doing this alone is a reallyreallyreally bad idea. Just saying.
...And more. But I've been working on this post forever, and I just want to get it published, so this is what you're getting on my NaNoWriMo 2013 experience. :p

On the random side:
The Ripple Trilogy. Go read it now. (At least today, the first one is FREEEEEEEEE on Amazon!)
Go Teen Writers: How to Turn Your First Draft into a Published Book is on sale for 99 cents! Well, the ebook version is, on Nook, Amazon, and Kobo. I'm pretty sure it's just this week, though, so GO BUY IT.
