Congratulations!! Are you going to share your novel with us? At least tell us about it and about your experience with NaNoWriMo.
It's terrible, and I know it's terrible. Towards the end, because of my job and work on a contract, I was just throwing words at the page. In the beginning, when I was fresh, and everything seemed like it was coming together, I wrote a lot. Then there was the week or so when I didn't write anything. And even now, I'm working under an impossible deadline at work, while working on something for a client. I'd say I'm going back to edit and revise... but I never do. But there is an imperative that I don't have the rest of the year, and it helps me to carry that over for other writing. I look at it as a way to push myself, and energize myself for other works.
