NaNoWriMo 2014: done!

Please excuse my absence. The news is NaNoWriMo has been completed, though the novel has not. I'm still thinking about it, which is unusual. So far as my NaNoWriMo track record goes, I wrote the first two to "The End" during the span of November, didn't finish the third, failed the fourth, and since then haven't finished a novel during the time. In at least one notable instance (Zombie Safari) I came to loathe the novel and was bored out of my skull; I took what was a short story, tried to make it into a novel, and made it a mess with my steampunk. So, best forgotten largely, though I could/should probably finish the short.

  1. Congrats on winning NaNo! I had to stop before finishing as had to go back and edit book 1 after Beta Reader feedback.

    Funnily enough Book 1 started off as a short story which I quickly realised was in fact Chapter 1 on a book rather than a complete story (I can't write shorts).

    Good luck continuing with the book!

    1. Thanks very much!

      It's funny, how a story merits long form vs. short forum. Sometimes I don't know 'til I've made gestures at one or the other. One of my novels was a short story I wrote first (which is at Beta readers right now, actually. Waiting is very hard).
