I survived NaNoWriMo

I may have survived the grueling thirty-day challenge, but I didn’t hit my fifty-thousand-word goal. I ended with forty-eight thousand. I was so close, but I can’t say I was disappointed. I managed to write every single day, which is something I haven’t done in a really long time.

Even though I was close to finishing, and did manage to write every day, there are still some things I would do differently.

I am a fiction writer who loves to write fantasy and romance. Check out my western romance book, Tangled Up In Love, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07YRFH37N
