How to Fail

Well, I have officially failed at NaNoWriMo 2013. Of my target 50,000 words of my novel, I achieved a grand total of <drumroll> 1,838. I think it’s safe to say, I failed spectacularly. Sure, I have excuses, but none of them really matter, which I’m pretty sure is the exact definition of excuse. The point is that I set a goal that, while it was achievable for thousands of others, for me it was ridiculously impossible. I believe you should always have a few impossible goals in your life.
So now, I’m almost finished with the first chapter, and on track to finish the first draft of the book by the end of May. This will still prove, I’m sure, to be a monumental task, but far less impossible. Stay tuned, just don’t hold your breath.
