I won NaNoWriMo! This stands for National November Writing Month. The goal is to write 50,000 words by November 30th and I finished by November 28th!
Writing every day was a genuine struggle, I’m not a writer who writes every day. This was a challenge for me, but I wanted to commit to this and push myself to complete this challenge. There were days I was near burnout mode, but having a competitive nature I didn’t put on the breaks and take a day or two off instead I pushed through to reach my goals.
During NaNoWriMo you earn badges for your milestones. You collect a badge for updating your progress, a badge for reaching the halfway point, writing 5, 10, 25, and 40 thousand words, and for reaching 50,000 words.
You can reward yourself for completing milestones! One of my rewards was the new Bésame Cosmetics Signature compact. This vintage compact is a beauty!
I’m not finished with my book yet, I still have words to write, but I completed my first NaNoWriMo and that is something to celebrate!
