I began NaNoWriMo this month for the first time, thinking that I would write like mad and finish my WIP. That might have worked if I had been at the beginning of my novel, but I am dead set in the middle. Who knew middles could be so hard.
November has been a good writing month regardless. I attended Dave Farland's Writing Death Camp a week ago and what I gained there is better than any word count I could have acheived holed up on my computer for the month of November.
Networking-I met some amazing people who took my writing seriously. Who else but writers consider your characters as real people?
The mental block that kept me from writing my middle and end has been lifted-thanks Dave.
I started my book in a new spot and it made a huge difference.
I re-affirmed that, yes, I can write a novel and I am a writer.
