NaNoWriMo: The Home Stretch

Ahead for the first time since November 2nd... the feeling is amazing. If you've never done NaNoWriMo, I can't begin to recommend it with anymore vigor and enthusiasm than this. It is simply more evidence that life is best lived in a creative fashion. Last year, I was "finished" by the 24th, having taken over the word count around the 17th and never even bothering to look back. This year, as I explained earlier this week, I have worked behind practically the entire time. And while I still have a long, long way to go (over 6,800 words), I am beginning to feel this is quite possibly the best writing experience I've ever had.

I suppose I should give quite a bit of credit to Mr. Murakami, whose last book "What I Talk About When I Talk About Running" (see October 31st entry) taught me about focus, endurance and the determination to see things through.

I still have some obligations at the Academy tonight, but I'll be off tonight through Sunday, November 30th, and, despite the fact that I have tons of papers to grade, I'll keep pushing through and through until the very end of NaNoWriMo.
