Ok, so now that I’ve had a month to recuperate, get sick, recuperate again, have Christmas, and recuperate again…now I want to take a look back at what I learned from the whole NaNoWriMo experience
#1 I can get blood from a stone! Writer’s block? What’s that? Despite several moments of fearing I wouldn’t finish my NaNo, I did it! I discovered I can push through setbacks creatively.
#2 I can work under pressure. I never thought I could before. All my life I’ve been a victim of the perfectionism/procrastination tendency. But faced with a deadline, I made it work.
#3 I’m not very good at balance. Before I do anything like NaNoWriMo again, I’d better get some efficient routines into place so I can write and still do those other things like wash clothes and feed my family. 😉
So with this in mind, it’s back to the grind!
