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!
