All month, we've had a local group for write ins, helping encourage all involved to cross that 50k mark for NaNoWriMo.
I learned several lessons going to these write ins.
1. I'm not good at writing in public. But I love helping people write.
2. In spite of not being good at writing around people, I still wrote remarkably well in my own time and have really developed a new approach to novel writing.
3. Writing is a powerful tool for unifying people of vastly different personalities.
4. You can't deny the thrill of being able to tell a group of people that you just won.
5. I love writing. I already knew this one, but I'm thrilled that every time I write, it just feels better and better.
I'm going to miss these write ins. But, doubtless, I'll draft many of the folks I've come to know into our various projects, like film and the like.
So, here's to a great month. Sad to see it go. But glad that several new novels will be gracing the world with their existence.
