Nanowrimo is over and it is safe to change my banner

This year was a tough year for me with Nano.

As far as time was concerned it was going to be an awesome year because I had a regular schedule, with set shifts and days off – everything was going to work out. I started off strong and about a week in I came across a user who had already reached 50,000 words and for whatver reason my ambition was taken down a few pegs. Let’s chalk it up to the fact that I am an impressionable person, I like competition as a means to increase my ambition when when individuals are so far ahead it becomes disheartening. Good news? Spoiler Alert? I made it to 50,000.

What I love most about Nanowrimo is that it is you and your book and the only thing in your way is yourself. It takes some flexibility, perserverance, and a dash of adaptability. So another novel has come and gone.. sort of… “Death Defines Us” (workign title) still has a great deal of editing to do, but the plot is something that I really enjoyed creating.

November has only just ended and I have already begun to dive into costumes for the upcoming conventions AND a whole new project of sorts. Which as of right now kind of looks like a mess, but I’ll leave some preview shots. Its going to be a good year with more of a presence on the site and else where!
