Since NaNo started, I’ve come to realize a few things. And maybe you have too.
I have more time than I thought I did.
God knows what I did every morning before class in September. Managing my time wisely means not staying up until 11:38 p.m., writing frantically.
I underestimated the speed at which I write/type.
On good days, I don’t need an hour to reach 1,667 words. Being in the zone is a beautiful thing.
Writing a novel is more satisfying and will teach you a lot more than acing any test or exam.
National Novel Writing Month reminds me that school isn’t everything. I’m much happier (albeit busier) when I’m working on personal projects outside of class.
What, if anything, have you realized?
