My Thoughts On NaNoWriMo

I completed the 50,000 word requirement to win (yay me) and now have another novel to work on, leaving me unsure as to which novel I should work on finishing.
I was happy to finish, it took some work, thinking up things to happen to get from 0 to 50,000 and yet, the month felt as though it flew by.

What I learned by doing NaNoWriMo:
1. Turning off my inner editor and just writing is rather hard.
2. It's physically possible for me to write at least half a novel in one month.
3. I seem to stay on task better when I have a deadline on my shoulders.

I think its something worth doing every year, at least to keep myself writing, but now that it's over I don't think I can keep up the pace of writing everyday.
