Okay this post is meant to be two separate posts, but I’ve combined it to be one, because of two reasons, 1. I was late writing up and scheduling both posts DUE TO NaNoWriMo and 2. Because I’m awesome like that.
Basically NaNoWriMo has been over for a week now and since then I’ve been thinking about how many words I wrote in just 30 days… It’s so weird!
In the fourth week of NaNoWriMo I found myself doing pretty well, but I began to stress out after 45,000 words as I was busy last weekend when I was needing to get those last two, nearly three thousand words written to complete NaNoWriMo and get to 50,000 words. I was with my boyfriend pretty much all weekend so I had to fit in writing before going to bed and as soon as we woke up for me to get to 50,000 words. The last two thousand works were horrible to get down because I just wanted NaNoWriMo to be over and done with for another year.
So as hard as the fourth and final week can be for NaNoWriMo, I found it to be pretty simple. I’d come home from work, write until about 1am-3am and then go to sleep. Simple! I did get a tad stuck at times but I soon got through that and plodded on!
Overall I really enjoyed NaNoWriMo this year and I’m actually surprised I finished! I finished on 50,261 words and I haven’t finished my novel, infact I’m nowhere near finishing it! It’s probably got another 50,000 words to go until it’s completely finished, but right now I’m unsure when I’ll be continuing with it as for a while I’m just going to be busy with Christmas and my birthday, as well as keeping my blog updated.
I have to admit, as much as I love writing I really did miss writing on my blog every other day. I just love writing about things I’m passionate about and I like to update you guys on things I’ve bought, like, my life etc. So the fact I just had to schedule a ton of posts back in October for the duration of November, it sucked!
I’m just glad to be back, but this being said I’m going to be taking part in NaNoWriMo next year, because I just enjoyed it so much!
I want to thank my friend Amy who was definitely my writing buddy throughout NaNoWriMo and would sit with me on Skype night after night discussing make up and out novels!
You NEED to go and check out her blog, (vondork.blogpost.com) she’s an amazing writer and recently came back after a very long hiatus, which I’m glad about. She’s mad about make up and was amazing and got me my MAC’s Speak Louder lipstick dirt cheap! Tell her I sent you if you find her through this post.
But the person I want to thank my most is my boyfriend. There were a few times where I was pretty close to giving up and he was there to encourage me to carry on and remind me that days before I was enjoying taking part in NaNoWriMo. He’s an amazing person and excuse my language but I’m so fucking lucky to have someone like him.
I’m really proud of myself for seeing NaNoWriMo through to the end this year, as I mentioned before I didn’t get past week one in 2012, which was rubbish.
I’m glad I was able to document my NaNoWriMo experience this year with you guys who read my blog, it’s been awesome. But now I’m back to being a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger. I’ve missed you all so much!
