It’s been almost a month since my last post and I only have a half decent excuse for half of that. To quickly sum up NaNoWriMo: it was a success, although it would be false modesty to say I was ever in doubt of that fact. NaNoWriMo for me is the challenge of meeting a tight deadline, pushing through the spectre of self-censoring during the writing process and establishing a solid discipline. I’ve succeeded the last three years and will continue to participate every year I am able. Really, the true challenge is maintaining a similar level of momentum after the month is over.
