NaNoWriMo is over


My official total is 53,219.
So I didn't quite get to my hoped for 60,000.

And another cartoon from Inky Girl.

And so to bed.

Well at least you reached the required total even if you didn't quite get your personal goal. Congratulations.

I don't like the idea of forced speed when doing anything creative or artistic. I would end up like poor Moxie in the cartoon.

For me it's what the mad hatter said: "The faster I go, the behinder I get."

Deadlines have the effect of enforced speed...

I am writing a blog post on the whole experience at another writers' blogging site - will link to it when it goes up.

Hmmm. I was about to post a nyah-nyah-style comment that I beat you by a whole 20 words ...

... but then I realised that I collapsed in an exhausted heap and haven't written a word since, while you have kept going and must now be ahead of me again.

So much for my brief moment of glory!

Thank goodness it's over, anyway! I love it but I'm always so glad when it finishes -- it's so demanding to write so much on top of all life's usual stuff. I don't know how you manage to do it all the time. One month a year nearly kills me.

But then I don't have a bunch of kids demanding attention! My ducklings have flown.
