NaNoWriMo Post-Mortem

NaNoWriMo 2007 was a bust this year. Not in general — as far as I can tell it went off without a hitch… they even had various writers (including Neil Gaiman!) send off the weekly pep talk emails that were sent to all participants.

But this year November wouldn’t let me catch a break. There were all kinds of fires to put out here (including a very hectic and drawn-out attempt to find work in an area that has no particular need for someone with fifteen years of technical writing experience, culminating in a four month job offer in New Orleans that has been pushed back to January 2008) and I had little time to sit down and think, much less actually write anything. I managed about 4,000 words on the first weekend, and never got back to it afterwards.

But that’s OK. There’s always next year.

Those of you who did better (or even if you did worse!) — post your wordcount here.
