Whew! And... We're... Done!
Need more proof?
Ba-bam!! Isn't that beautiful?
I know I've said it before sarcastically, but I'm really going to keep this short. Cross my heart and I hope you die. Oh you know I don't want you to die. I appreciate you always taking the time to read and comment on my posts, so I would never want you to leave this Earth. Look at me, look into my eyes. No. You got that? Good.
What a tiring month! For some reason, November always drains me. It doesn't show because I use lotion before I go to bed, but I am literally out of words right after this month. I know it doesn't show it because I've used multiple NaNoWriMo accounts in the past, but I've been at this since 2010. I've been writing 50,000 plus words for far longer than most kids have lived. I feel like I'm a grizzled veteran even though I've been professionally published 0 times. Quite too often, in the middle of the month, I just mutter to myself, "I'm too old for this shit."
This was one of those classic nailbiters. Unlike last year when I blitzed during the midpoint and then coasted near the end, four days ago, I wasn't even sure I was going to finish. When I started, I set a lofty goal of finishing 1.5 stories. People told me that I was crazy, that it's a suicide mission. There were prayer rallies and petitions asking for me to take it easy. But, I shrug them off thinking that after seven years of doing this, I was finally ready to ascend to heights that most people only dream about.
Turns out they were right.
Let it be known that while I succeeded in my NaNo mission, I failed in my own side mission. For that, I am sorry. I know babies are weeping right now, and to them I'll say, "Get over it... you babies." It was too much for me to carry, what with everything going on. Add to that, I even wrote this NaNotes series because I had a deathwish. I hope people got something from them.
As much as I want this to be, this is just a short culmination for my experiences last month. It was a rollercoaster ride, and like every other ride, they all have their end. No notes here, just a recap. I just wanted to etch my mixed results to the STEEM blockchain, and to put a table of contents here for my NaNotes. I initially planned it to be eight in total, but I ended up with four. So, here they are:
If you liked them or you thought they were da bomb, feel free to comment here or any of them. Also, I won't complain if you gave this post an upvote. In fact, I would be grateful. Like, so grateful.
Now, wasn't that short? (Na)No? Hit that ^ button below to tell me "up yours" and protest. Go on! I dare you!
