I managed to write the required 50,000 words to complete NaNoWriMo. I didn’t find this easy to do but I did do it in 17 days. The story may have been better if I had taken more time but I knew that once I started travelling that there was no way that I would find time to write.
I found writing strangely addictive. There were parts of the story that unfolded as quickly as I could type. I also started to dream about the characters. I hadn’t expected writing to feel so like reading. (I’m not sure if that sentence makes a lot of sense but whilst I was writing I stopped reading fiction, as if the writing I was doing removed my need to do this.)
The story isn’t finished yet but I’m going to wait until the New Year and then go back to it.
