This is just a quick update to those who have been following me on this blog.
No, I didn’t win NaNoWriMo 2009. I didn’t finish 50,000 words by midnight on November 30, 2009. Even on the first day, I doubted if I could do it. Then I received words of encouragement not only from people who believe in me, but also from the pep talks from the MLs (Municipal Liaisons) of NaNoWrimo. There was a moment when I thought that I could actually do this. I was motivated. But something came up – WORK.
I thought, so what? I could still try to do this even with a busy schedule. I planned to drink lots of coffee and stay up til late at night. But I soon realized that my mind and body could not do what younger writers could. So I didn’t bother anymore.
I do have the material. I believe I have at least 50,000 words up here on my head. I just don’t have the time right now to put them into paper or type them on the keyboard. I know I want to write, finish what I have started. So it doesn’t stop here. I’m going to continue writing a little bit every now and then and eventually I’ll have that 50,000 words on paper, or a Word document.
