I completed and ‘won’ NaNoWriMo, but it all left me feeling a little dejected. As I verified my word count at just under 51k, I didn’t feel the euphoria that I expected I would. I thought I was overtired, but the feeling has stuck.
It is now ten days past NaNo and I’m still trudging on with my novel. Not at the rate I was during November, but slow and steady. I still love my story. If anything, it seems to be flowing better now I don’t have the constant pressure of expected word counts hanging over my head. I’ve read through what I’ve already written and I have to admit it isn’t as rubbish as I expected. All in, NaNo was a positive experience, I just never felt that completing was much of an achievement. In fact, I’m almost disappointed I didn’t write more. Odd.
How does everyone else feel about NaNoWriMo now that it’s over?
