For the first time ever, I have won the NaNoWriMo. Â By focusing on word counts over content, I was able to bang out over 50,000 words in 30 days…
… and I feel dirty.
In my time on this Earth I have written a number of things of which I am ashamed, but after the first fifteen thousand or so words this year’s WriMo project turned into the worst piece of shit I have ever created. Â I will set it aside and sometime in January I might review it, and in all likelihood I’ll delete over 35,000 of those words and pretend they never existed. Â And that’s if I can ever bring myself to review it, which I may not, because it really is a piece of shit.
Next year, I think I’ll go back to focusing on content and return to my previous years of losing with style. Â I’ve never felt so poorly about winning in my entire life.
