Doing the happy dance! Pleased to report that I have finished the first draft of Red Thief, the story I started during 2010 NaNoWriMo. I struggled during November to get those 50,000 words and immediately after NaNo was over, ending up deleting almost 1/3 of it. It has been my goal each round to finish the story and by jove, finally managed it. It may have holes as big as Montana but I'm done for now. Already missing the characters and feeling like I need to continue, but going to take a break from it. I'm going to let it rest a bit and start editing another story I wrote called "Eyes in the Ashes. 95% certain I'm not going to do Nano this November although have ideas for another story brewing. How do you manage to edit one story while writing another one without feeling like your brain is split in two. I hear of writers doing it all the time, so going to have to figure that out.
Check out how everyone else is doing as this Round winds down with one week left to go.
First of all, congratulations! I'm so proud of you. =O) I know you are proud of yourself too, as well you should be.ReplyDelete
I have been a bad, bad ROW80 participant. I haven't updated in a couple of weeks because, frankly, I have nothing to update about. And I have fallen off with the daily journaling. I don't know what is wrong with me. I think it's time to step back and re-evaluate what I'm doing so I can get back on track. I've just been so incredibly busy lately, but I've got to figure out a way to fit the writing in! I WILL figure this out!
Sorry for grousing! I just know that you can probably understand where I'm coming from. =O)
Once again, congrats!
Wow!!! Congratulations. Yay you!!ReplyDelete
