TGIO!!!

Finally, NaNoWriMo is over and what a month it was. More than once I felt like giving up. My mind told me that there is always a next time or that this is my first attempt and everyone falls the first time. But something wnated me to keep going till the very last moment, which I did, and this is what I got:

I made two major mistakes this time : I did not plan in advance and I waited too long before making a dash for the finish. Next year, if I do NaNoWriMo, this will change. The efort will be a bit more planned and evened out through the month. But right now I dont need to think about that. It feels great to be able to get to the target that one has set for him/her self. I set out to get 50,000 words and I got there with about 4 hours to spare.

I am totally exhausted, both mentally and physically and right now I just want to Thank God its over.
