As many of you know I participated in NaNoWriMo 2018. Essentially what that means is I had the mental fortitude to withstand egregious amounts of coffee injected directly into my bloodstream. Also, I was able to write 1,700 words a day for a whole month ending at 50,000 words. I honestly learned a lot about my writing along the way. For context I’ve been writing fiction for around 8 years now, and this is the first time I’ve submitted anything to a competition or organization. It was a great experience to have participated and I have no regrets, well except now I’m even MORE addicted to coffee which I previously thought was impossible.
