I made it past the finish line! It wouldn’t be possible without the write-ins the lovely ML of NaNoLondon organised. During these evenings I got a bulk of my writing done. It always felt extra good leaving a write-in, knowing that I was ahead on my word count.
Now I have a very rough draft of an ok story.
This year I was using the snowflake method to plan for my story and I think it worked out quite well in terms of structure and knowing where the story was going, and most importantly being confident that my idea was a good one to start with. Considering how many changes I did to the flow of the story during the planning phase I could see how it would have gone during NaNoWriMo without it. Hopefully, once I look at the manuscript in the new year, it will be better than my previous first drafts.
Now it is back to the last weeks of other writing, before I’m taking a couple of weeks off for the holidays.
