Well, after 30 long days, I have done it. I finished another year as a ‘winner’ of Nanowrimo.
I started the month out with only the whiff of an idea. I didn’t plot out my story before I wrote it. I just wrote… still with a beat sheet at my side so I wasn’t going in completely blind. Some days it was a slog, while others the words just flowed. That’s the beauty of Nano. Every day, you don’t know what you’ll be faced with.
Now that this first draft of a new series is done, it’s going to sit on my computer and ignored (so I can forget the story), and then later next year I’ll dig it out and start a second draft with fresh eyes.
Tomorrow, December 1, I’ll pick up those stories I’d pushed aside for Nano. No rest for the wicked.
Until next time, my peeps.
