May 1 - afterword
From the end spring new beginnings.
— Pliny the Elder
Another Camp NaNoWriMo has come to an end, Nano Writer. Now begins the bus ride home and we can talk about our plans for our next writing project whether it’s coming back next July, plotting for November’s challenge or even moving on to other creative projects that have been kept on a back burner while we banged out a fantastic first draft or polished an older manuscript, crafting a more beautiful jewel of a story.
And whether you crossed the finish line this time Nano Writer or not, you should be proud of all that you did get done, five hundred words or a hundred thousand, because each word, each sentence, each chapter and scene makes you a better writer! And that’s something wonderful and creative and good!
So let’s hear how things went for you this month: lessons learned, samples of shiny sentences or laugh-out-loud typos - whatever you would like to share before the bus takes us home and we step out to embrace our families and friends who have waited for our return from this grand adventure.
Because it’s time to say goodbye. And until next time, keep writing!
