Well friends, it's December 1st, and I did not win NaNoWriMo. This is not an unfamiliar feeling. I have lost the challenge more than I have won. That's because it's a challenge! It's hard every year, some years are harder than others, but it's still always worth it.
I've got the bones of a story. I have some good scenes, and I got to know my characters. The only way that this month is a waste, is if I stop writing.
I hope that all you other Wrimos that have participated this month had a wonderful experience whether or not you hit that 50k.
I'm looking forward to the end of the year, spending time with my family for the holidays, and then getting back to work in 2017.
Wishing you lots of luck on your adventures, and a big high-five to all of you who attempted NaNoWriMo this year!
