Another NaNoWriMo Session Over, Another Draft Begins

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2013 Winner!Here there be an update on the novel-writing progress, arrrr. I don’t know why I suddenly starting talking, er, writing like a pirate. I also don’t know how many drafts of this novel I’ll write. I do know that with every draft I’m getting a clearer picture of what I’m doing and where the story is headed. And the world continues to go crazy around us. Which is bad, I know, but provides more fodder for the novel! If only I were through writing this thing and getting it published!

But all in good time. I did reach my 50k-in-30-days goal and early, at that! Now I’m in the process of thinking and rethinking before starting the next draft. Getting clossser, my Preciousss, clossser! Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha! ;)

NaNoWriMo Novel at 50,000 Words, Story Just Beginning

I DID IT! I WON! Hit 50,000 words even though the story has only just begun...Did. It. Finished. NaNoWriMo. Wrote 50,000 words on a draft of a novel that is still taking shape in my wee little mind. Every time I think I’m beginning to see the big picture of the story, something shifts and I see an aspect I had not suspected before. Or I realize that I’ve dropped an aspect that I definitely want to explore. Or a character or storyline that was a major focus isn’t any more. All of which is to say that, though my 50,000 word dash is at an end, the work on my story seems just about to begin. And that’s fine by me. I’m loving this.
