Back to Normal

I don’t know if there’s ever a “normal” in this country, but the firing has ceased and so has NaNoWriMo. It was my first attempt and I managed 35,044 words.


I didn’t “win”, but I wrote every day and I now have the first draft of a novel I can work with.

In addition, I met some lovely people in Jerusalem who were also doing NaNo.

So I enjoyed the experience and, whatever they say, I feel I’ve won!

You may not be able to put the NaNoWriMo win badge on display, but this is a big win, indeed. You’ve got a novel started and been able to make new connections. Sounds like a win to me. Good luck as you continue working on the novel 🙂
