I fell short . Way, way short. National Novel Writing Month’s (NaNoWriMo) finish line ended at 50,000 words in 30 days. I wrote a paltry 3,000 words in a week.
I signed up with good intentions, mind you. Feel free to chuckle at my feeble and most embarrassing attempt to write a novel. I’m giggling, too.
It’s not a bust, however. Written words, no matter the length, are better on the page than off. If I choose to go back and work with my characters, they’re waiting for me.
In the meantime. I got busy building a web presence. NaNoWriMo fell by the wayside but my brand grew.
I met my goal. That’s what counts. In November, I got Big Grey Horse Media and another blog, Elizabeth’s Legacy, running. There’s much work to do on both but now I’m writing for my clients and for me. I’ve joined the social media revolution with tweets, blogs and soon-to-come Facebook pages. I’m proud of that!
Keep after your dreams. It’s worth it to start something, even if you don’t finish.
