Hello, dear readers! I am here again to let you know that I have survived the Thanksgiving holiday, though the same cannot be said of the sweet, delicious turkey that I helped to devour. The long, long weekend came at the end of a long, long NaNoWriMo, but I’m happy to say that both tasks have been handily conquered.
It was a near thing with NaNoWriMo, I have to say. Between a chronic and painful lack of sleep, a frustrating lack of direction with my novel, and the extended travel time, I just barely squeaked by the finish line on Sunday afternoon with no more than 100 words to spare. But by the end of the endeavor, some big plot points had been navigated and some important new ideas had been jotted down for later. I’m actually very pleased with what I accomplished, even if it needs some reworking down the line.
November was busy, and December is shaping up to be the same way. I’ll be making a few awesome appearances in web media this month, which will be a great way to send off 2014 with style. And I hope to finish the rough draft of Book Four in the next month or so, which means I can start getting the second volume in shape for publication sometime this spring.
And don’t forget that you can still enter my book review giveaway contest until January 15! Now that NaNoWriMo is over and the tryptophan hangovers are starting to wear off, there’s no excuse not to get back to your reading.
How did all my fellow NaNo participants do in November? Did you cross the finish line? Did a burned stuffing disaster derail your plans? Tell me in the comments!
