Now that I don’t have a deadline . . .

Winner-180x180On Friday morning, November 30th, twelve and a half hours before midnight November 30th, I passed 50,000 for NaNoWriMo. My story is not finished. What is to keep me motivated?

Well, besides being an interesting story to me, I need to set a deadline for myself. My goal is to finish the novel before midnight December 31st. I have no word count goal–my goal is to just finish the story.

Every time I win NaNoWriMo, I know it’s the deadline that keeps me going. Now I have no deadline except the one that I give myself. So here is my goal:

I will finish telling my story by midnight December 31st, 2012 (EST).

To grow as a writer, I must write every day, NaNoWriMo or not.

Two things I love to do the most include graphic design and writing. I was an editor at a publishing company for several years; I saw the graphic designers at work and thought, 'I'd like to do that.' So I went to art school. I love to read, write and draw. Yes, I am a creative nerd type. I like to read all kinds of books, but science fiction and fantasy is my guilty pleasure. Why am I keeping this blog? It's just a place to keep my thoughts. My brain is getting too full to store them all, so this place is a good annex.
