I finished writing a novel in July and swore I never wanted to look at it again. But, lo and behold, here I thinking about about it and feeling like getting my editing hat back on. Hello NaNoEditMo November? It may just happen.
I finished my novel, including the epilogue, yesterday. It’s a steaming pile of crap, as first drafts always are. However, there’s enough there to tuck in and polish, chuck and add, when the editing phase begins. Right now, though, I’m just sitting back and feeling very proud of myself.
Getting this done in one month was no bed of roses. I knew it would be a slog, so I hired a friend of mine who’s a writing coach to be my official nudge. She has done her job and done it well. I’m done!
Okay, guys. I’m doing it. NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow and I’m committed to this project. I’m even hiring a fellow writer to act as inspiration and nudge.
Here’s to our dreams!
This might be a good sign: I’ve started to feel like writing again. I hard just started NaNoWriMo last November when my mother’s death put an end to it. Since then I haven’t felt like writing. Now, I’m starting to think about it again. Good sign?
I’m over 7,000 words for day 3 of NaNoWriMo. My husband and I will be leaving tomorrow morning for Western New York and services for my mom. Don’t know if I’ll get a chance to write during that time but will be getting back to it soon!
Life goes on and I’m still committed to NaNoWriMo this month. Just churned out 1,700 words for the day. Feeling somber, of course, but moving forward as before.
I started my NaNo adventure by rewriting the last two chapters from last year. This gives me the chance to refresh my memory and set the stage for the next set of adventures. The word count is over 3,000. A lot of that, not all, is new.
Tomorrow I start afresh!
