The NaNoWriMo is over and I…

It’s now over. The NaNoWriMo is over. Thirty whole days of writing 50k words in 30 day…I pause as I wipe the sweat from my brow.

This is the second time, in five years, that I haven’t finished a story. I wasn’t even close, I quit with less than 1/3 of my story. I am glad I outlined seven pages of my story, though.

As of December 1st, I decided that I would take a break from writing in any of my novels, until January. During the month of November, I came up with two more story lines, and last night, as I was talking to a friend who came up with an awesome title, I decided that I would finish my “Tome” on internet dating.

Of course, all of this, novel writing, isn’t going to take place until January first or within that first week, part of my non-resolution for the year of 2017. In the meantime, I will still write in my blogs and other little bits and pieces on the internet.

As it is, now, I have so many items on my plate, things I should have finished, in the past couple of years. Life for me has been good, but I have to carry it over, that good stuff, into my writing. So much to do, and so much time…

  1. I got off to a tremendous start, got busy editing for my customers and wrote about 100 words a day for two weeks, stated that I would not finish, then suddenly blasted through to the finish line with a finished first draft on time. Not counting this NaNoWriMo2016 novel, the last time I wrote anything was NaNoWriMo2015. Before that was the four-year legacy project.

    So now I have a rough draft that makes me happy, and my favorite part of the writing process is the endless rounds of self-editing. I love improving stuff a lot more than I do filling blank pages. But every time I think I’ve got a hole in the schedule, it closes up. It’s something to look forward to. Also, I won’t give myself permission to die until it’s published. I guess that’s a good thing. Depends on who you ask.
