And this was a hard one this year. A word of advice: Don’t move during Nano.
For the first Nano ever I was not able to complete a first draft of a novel. While I did get 81753 words, part of that was a revision (yes, I was a bit of a Nano rebel this year). The one book I was writing from scratch, “Lost Garden of Dreams”, now sits at 54k. I estimate it still needs about another 20,000 words to finish it up.
I don’t like having an unfinished first draft sitting there. Since 2007 I’ve finished everything I’ve started. Strangely, I think it’s bothering me more than if I hadn’t achieved 50k for Nano.
Want to take a guess at what I’ll be working on in December? Hehe.
I hope Nano went better for everyone else this year. And any new words is a good thing! I just need to keep reminding myself of that!
