I did it, people. I finished my NaNoWriMo manuscript. And then I wrote my first piece for Medium about the experience. Mainly, I am just overwhelmed about being finished. I think my novel was very, very bad towards the end. In fact, the whole thing may be bad. I introduced characters, then forgot to write about them.
And then there’s the problem of genre. I meant for my novel to be firmly in the young adult genre, except I think it turned out too violent for that. Oh well, that’s what editing is for, right? Mainly, I am so proud I finished. I have been writing for a long time, but I’ve never finished a proper novel before.
To everyone who participated in NaNoWriMo: congratulations!
