We catch up with our #NaNoWriMo participants:
Ali Williams ~ In some ways I've had an absolutely disastrous NaNoWriMo. Work hit me with a mass of "this needs to be done now" stuff first week in, and my momentum never quite recovered, and now I'm kind of blocked.
Like I said, disastrous.
However, I'm not feeling too bad about it. I've made a pretty decent start and planned out an entire novel which I'm going to keep working on.
I've found out that I can indeed capture the sense of a place far better than I realised.
And also, it's been fun. Oodles and oodles of fun.
I've met and spoken to other #NaNoRomMoers and #NaNoWriMoers that I've never met or spoken to before. I've been part of a community that's funny and engaging and supportive, and I've learnt so damn much.
So yeah, I might not be a winner in the traditional #NaNo sense, but I don't mind.
