NaNoWriMo Revisited

Thirty days ago* I posted that I had signed up to NaNoWriMo again this year. The intention was to clear the backlog of work I've had on my schedule of late. And did it work?

In a word? No.

The trouble is that as a jobbing writer, new jobs can come along at any time, often accompanied by a tight deadline**. As a result, I've not finished the jobs I was planning on finishing, but have completed several others.

And my conclusion? That NaNoWriMo just isn't for professionals. And will I do it again next year? Never say never.

My NaNoWriMo profile today.

* Is it really thirty days? Where did the time go?

** I've also been trying to get a Kickstarter off the ground, but more about that another day (I hope).
