Well I know all of you nano writers out there are reaching for the finish line...growing tired....beginning to pant and longing to breathe at a regular pace. Maybe some of you unique writers don't find it too hard, but I can't imagine that. I have never tried it, but from reading some of your posts it does seem very challenging.
As for me, I've been struggling with getting my MG novel just right. It's a case of I thought it was done..revised and revised yet again. Query almost done but then...well...I decided to revise some more. I decided my beginning could be better and I did write a new first chapter that I have to say I love. So, I believe it was the right thing to do. (Hoping!)
The thing is, I don't want to send it out into the scary agent land until I feel it's as good as I can possibly make it. I would hate to be rejected only to feel that darn, if I'd only made that change I was thinking of. I feel I'm almost there and so while I'm not writing nano, I too feel I'm nearing the finish line...anxious and eager to complete it and be completed. :) Happy writing, and we will all have to share a virtual glass of champagne at the finish line!
