I’m relieved because this month has been long, a bit stressful, and most of all, mentally draining. I found myself on edge and snapping at friends because my mind is tired and needs a rest. Writing 50,000+ words in 30 days is not easy, even with a co-author. So, I’m relieved that the month is almost over, and I’ll be able to give my brain a rest.
On the other hand, I’m sad because I believe this month has been a lot of fun and has helped me, even if it was just a little, to become a better writer. I have a better understanding of writing to a deadline, as well as pushing though even when I don’t feel like writing. It also helped my creativity skills because I had to think of things on the fly sometimes. It’s been an all around awesome experience. Something that I think I would like to do again next year.
But that’s a while away, and this November isn’t over yet. I still have five more days! I’m happy for the break tomorrow because of Thanksgiving!
Current word count for The Pharaoh: 58,207/50,000
Until next time,
