That day ” A story was out” – 16:11:2016
I heard about NaNoWriMo for the first time last year and checked out what it was all about. For those who do not know:
National Novel Writing Month is an annual event in which people are encouraged to write a novel with at least 50,000 words over the 30 days of November.
I did not stand anywhere to join. I was a novice in writing and still I cannot call myself a Writer but only a Story teller who shares whatever the Life teaches.
When October came, I had story in my head but it was not-so-short to be told in single post.
But the story had to come out as it was making me restless.
That is why, I decided to register with NaNoWriMo with no intent to write a novel but to narrate a story. I started November with so much of excitement.
Day 1 ended with few words. May be the inspiration was missing. It was then Damyanti from Daily Write pinged me and asked me to participate in Twitter group of established writers.
I felt small among them but she pushed me to write with regular sprints. There I was, exhausted but managed to pull out around 4000 words in 4 days.
My story was still incomplete. I started again on 16th Day and manged to pull it off. A story was out with 5K+ words.
I failed NaNoWriMo but I wrote more than I’ve ever written before for a single story. It feels amazing.
I am not sure if I am able to share it with the world someday but my mind came clean.
Did you had story waiting to come out?
