What do I do now?

Standard

For all of my dear writer friends out there, and all my lovely followers, I want to share a little post-nan0wrimo wisdom with you. YOU AREN’T FINISHED! (insert maniacal laughter here)

So true. So very, very true. I am still a student in the way of the writer, myself, but this bit of author humor seems to strike a certain chord with me. I’m working on book two of my Riesa Grimshaw series, but after the flurry that was November, I had to take a break from my novel. I had to step back and breath for a moment. I had to read someone elses words for a while. I had to forget what I wrote so that I could go after it again with fresh eyes.

And that is the story of how I managed to read seven harlequin romance novels in nine days. It’s my guilty pleasure, what can I say.

Admittedly, I did keep a running notepad of ideas while I was taking my “break”. The better to edit with, my dear.

Time to go back to work, I guess!

NaNoWriMo, the twilight hours.

Standard

Phew! After thirty days of struggling with time and motivation, I’ve finally validated the rough rough rough draft of Ghost of a Chance. Clocking in at barely 50,500 words, it still needs an ending and a lot of polishing! And trust me, “a lot” is an understatement. 🙂

But, I am still proud of myself for sticking it out, and I am proud of all of you fellow nanowers too! Whether you won or just got started, you all created something. 🙂 ain’t it nice?

I look forward to reading your books!
