I Failed At NaNoWriMo

When I wrote the post saying I was attempting NaNoWriMo a few weeks ago, I really didn't want to have to write this post. But alas, the typical thing happened and life got in the way and everything just got far more hectic than it was in October, meaning I failed rather miserably.

Although technically I failed as I didn't even reach 10,000 wor
ds, I'm still pretty proud of the fact I planned out a novel and wrote just short of 10,000 words of it. I think that alone is an achievement in itself, especially as that was almost exclusively written in the first week or so of November. After that everything got a little too busy and I wasn't able to write much at all and when I did have time I was too tired but these things happen.

Technically, yes, I failed, but I'm not really thinking of it like that. I wrote nearly 10,000 words that I wouldn't have written had I not attempted NaNoWriMo and since the whole idea of it is to get people writing more than they would normally, I would consider that something at least.

Did any of you manage to complete NaNoWriMo? If you did, I applaud you. It is no easy feet.
