My NaNoWriMo Round 3: Week 5

Louisville Caverns Zipline to Hell

Last day of NaNoWriMo! Not only did I hit the road for the holidays, but I also completed my goals for National Novel Writing Month before we entered the month of December.

Not only did I visit Columbus for Thanksgiving this year, but the family took a short trip down to Louisville. As you can see, the ziplining there was pretty awesome!

Here’s my last update for this year’s (and my version of) NaNoWriMo:

My Progress

Since last week, I submitted my play to four theatre opportunities as promised. They were scattered all around the U.S. this time. Some opportunities were to develop the play while others were to perform it in full.

My Struggles

I had two obstacles this week. Fortunately, one was a very good problem to have.

The not-so-very-good problem was that I struggled to find play opportunities this week. Last week, I simply narrowed my search to Chicago and found a wealth of opportunities. I didn’t have this luck putting in other cities. So I spent many hours digging for opportunities that were a good fit for my play.

My Successes

The good problem I had was that I had a commitment deadline to meet. I wanted to finish up my NaNoWriMo goals before I left for Thanksgiving, so I pushed myself early in the week (in between bouts of packing) to get all my submissions in. That way, my family had my full attention during the holiday.

My Goals


NaNoWriMo ends tomorrow. While I won’t have formal goals to post weekly, I’ll still aim to submit my play more and more now that it’s become a habit.

You can also expect my blog to resume its normal blogging schedule. I have some exciting blog posts coming up about creative writing and content marketing. I can’t wait to share them with you!

November is a special month for me because it’s when I first began my blog. This November marks the third year that I’ve blogged at Thank you for your readership and support in keeping this blog going!
