I finished the National Novel Writing Month on the last day with a few words to spare. The goal was to write 50,000, and I wrote 50,171 words.
This first draft will go through numerous edits and rewrites in the coming months. I won't look at it for several weeks. I want fresh eyes when I open the file on my computer.
For the other writers who also took part in NaNoWriMo, and especially those who reached the 50k goal, my sincere congratulations. I know firsthand what you had to do to produce that diamond in the rough.
Until the next time…
