Congratulations NaNoWriMo Participants

Congratulations to everyone who participated in National Novel Writing Month! With the end of November, you are either looking with glee at a 50000-word (or more) manuscript or sadly facing the fact that you just couldn’t make it to 50000.
Either way, you accomplished something meaningful – either you finished (or at least made a good start on) a major writing project, or you didn’t make it and learned some pretty important things about yourself as a writer and about how to manage your time, enthusiasm, and creativity to make it for the long haul. I admire the people who took the challenge, regardless of your final word count.
I hope the posts here have helped you in your efforts, especially the interviews with NaNoWriMo participants. I am grateful to everyone who answered the call – I really appreciate you taking the time to share your advice with your fellow WTC readers. My thanks to:
- Trisha Bartle
- Carolyn Dekat
- Sonja Faust
- Catherine Hicks
- Amanda Kendle
- Betty Punkert
- Whitney Rhodes
- Jon Strother
Let’s do it again next year, and more besides! In the meantime, keep writing. Have a happy holiday season and into the New Year.
We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.
Thanks for your support of the event – the interviews were both insightful and encouraging. The best of all (for me) was finding your Linux writing series – very useful indeed!
You’re welcome. Aaron Peters has been doing a great job with the Linux posts — and I’m told there are more on the way.
Thanks for running my interview. I enjoyed doing it. I fully expect I’ll be doing NaNo again next year and hope I can use some of the lessons learned from this go round. By the way, I talk about using Twitter to chronicle my NaNoWriMo progress this year on my Blog today. I think Twitter actually turned out to be useful. I was highly skeptical of the utility of Twitter when I first signed up for it, but I think it helped me reach my goal. Pretty cool.
