I was one of those WriMos who thought it was near impossible to write 50k words in a month (the closest I’ve come is 40k), but I ended up writing a whopping 71k!! Why? Because I pushed myself beyond what I thought was possible. I made myself sit in my damn chair until I was done. I also withheld chocolate until I’d reached the daily word goal (and learned it was a very good motivator for me).
Whether you won or not, go buy yourself something pretty! You deserve it!
