I’m going to NaNoWriMo this year to hopefully finish my very shitty first draft that I’ve been taking seriously since January. I outlined the ending yesterday and found loose ends which made me realize how much I need to finish this story — a story which I do like a lot. Then the clean up begins. This is my first novel and I’m working in circles half the time. But you’re right, NaNoWriMo helps us focus and the camaraderie is fun. In a sucky sort of way.
