Fine food, fine wine and a fine family.
What else can you ask for.
Maybe a giggle or two or three.
Hello, I'm still alive. Coming down to the finish line with National Novel Writing Month and sitting at 46,420 words. Will hopefully hit 50,000 tomorrow, however "Red Thief" will not be finished. There are about another 25,000 words floating around in my brain to get it from here to there. My internal editor has been screaming at me the past couple days. I had to let him out long enough to write my class papers and then stuff him back in the box again.
However, he managed to get a few words in edgewise giving me some Aha, that would sound better, moments. I have to keep making notes because it's evolving a bit differently than expected. Just as soon as I finish a scene, the characters then change their minds in which direction they want to go, taking me in a slightly different direction. Which just means I either go back and change the scene or type up the scene again, keeping the old scene so that I keep my word count. It will all be fixed in the edit. I can see already this one is going to evolve with the edits.
When all is said and done, I'll be typing up lessons learned this year from Nanowrimo. It's amazing what you discover when you challenge yourself.
