Good-bye NaNoWriMo ’13

I made a hard decision yesterday.

I dropped NaNoWriMo for this year. It just was not working out for me to write in that challenge. Perhaps it was because I took on three writing challenges for November and it was too much with all else going on, perhaps it was because I am simply having difficulty writing through to the end of my novel’s story, maybe it was because I am weary or preoccupied, or …. all of the above!

Whatever the reason, I gave up. That is something I hated to do, but it was better than reaching the end of November and hardly having anything added to my novel when I had a 50k goal or completion of my novel. My NaNo update page for 2013 has been revised to accommodate my decision. So, good-bye NaNoWriMo 2013; I’m disappointed to not have finished the story, and likely my sister will be, too, since she wants to know how it ends. (So do I!)

The good thing is I have been working away at PiBoIdMo and already have over the requirement for completion. Yay!piboidmo2013-lightbulb-happy-200x254I will update more later. And I may have some very exciting news soon!

Do you give up when it looks like failure, or as if you cannot complete what you set out to do?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!

  1. I have some ideas for PiBoIdMo. I am catching up over break! 3 of them are titles for fractured fairytales I came up with (the fractured, not the tale 😉 )! 🙂 I’m sorry for you not being able to complete NaNoWriMo 2013. 😦 Maybe next year? 🙂


  2. I don’t think you should feel bad at all. I don’t like to write on demand, and like you, have enough other projects to keep me centered. All the best.


  3. Proud of you for wise decisions, Lynn!!


  4. Goals can always be adjusted. I think you made a good decision. Congrats on the PiBoIdMo. Also you wrote a blog everyday! (Something I couldn’t do) You should pat your self on the back my friend.


    • Good reminder for me that “Goals can always be adjusted”, thank you for that, Darlene.
      And thank you for the acknowledgement. I’m sure you know how much that is appreciated. 🙂
      Have a wonderful weekend!


I look forward to reading your greatly appreciated comments. Thanks for making my day! :)
