So here we are at the end of NaNoWriMo, and I’m sorry to say I got only a thousand words written this month. Some writer friends were surprised to hear that, especially the ones who’ve watched my NaNo Live videos on Facebook. This has been a month of false starts, dry creativity, and sluggish motivation.
It did allow me a chance to reconnect with friends, however, and I made a pact with one to check in with each other regularly to keep each other motivated. He lives in a small town in Idaho where a literary community is hard to come by. Conversely, I live in LA where there’s a thriving literary community, but everyone is so busy that I get to catch up with friends mostly at the readings.
I enjoyed making my NaNo Live videos, even though I wasn’t able to get them out on a daily basis. It’s something I’d like to keep doing on a weekly basis.
